What is a sex crime?
A sex crime would be any criminal act which involves unlawful actions of a sexual nature. Rape, sexual abuse or assault, solicitation and pornography are all examples of sex crimes. There are many more. Sex with a person under the age of 18 is illegal, even though it may have been consensual. The unusual thing about a sex crime is that under many circumstances, no actual act of sex need occur for one to be charged with and convicted of a sex crime. An example of this would be internet sex crimes.
If convicted of a serious sex crime, California law mandates that your name be placed in the sex offender registry. This label can remain with you for life and will seriously affect your employment opportunities in the future, not to mention your personal and professional reputation. A challenging aspect of sex crime cases is that the charges could be based upon the testimony of a single alleged victim. It is not uncommon for false charges to be made by jealous individuals, who may or may not understand the destruction that can be caused. You want a lawyer on your side that only has your best interests in mind and also has the knowledge and experience to give you the best possible defense.
