What Are Sex Crimes in California?
Sex crimes consist of misdemeanors and felonies that involve any type of sexual activity from forcible rape to indecent exposure. Aside from jail or prison time along with stiff fines, conviction of a sex crime can lead to mandatory sex offender registration under California’s Meagan’s Law, often for life. As a registered sex offender, you will be subject to many restrictions with your information made available on the internet. If you are convicted of a felony sex crime, you are also obligated to disclose it when applying for a job and will be prohibited from possessing a gun.
Examples of California sex crimes include:
- Spousal rape
- Oral sex by force
- Sex acts with a child under the age of 10
- Possession, distribution, and production of child pornography
- Statutory rape
- Lewd acts with a child aged 15 or less
- Sexual battery
- Indecent exposure
- Lewd conduct in public
Sex crime accusations can often be based on falsehoods, half-truths, and other misleading statements.
