What is considered a sex crime in California?
A sex crime would be any criminal act which involves unlawful actions of
a sexual nature.
Examples of sex crimes:
- Sexual abuse
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.
