Los Angeles Child Molestation Attorney
Charged with child molestation?
Child molestation is a very serious crime that occurs when an adult takes
deliberate action to engage a minor, often under the age of 14, in an
inappropriate way to receive sexual stimulation. Specifically, the act
of touching any part of a child's body in order to gain sexual satisfaction
is strictly prohibited by law, and convicted offenders will certainly
face a range of harsh penalties. It is in the best interest of anyone
accused of child molestation to seek the advice of a
Los Angeles sex crimes attorney in order to receive the best possible defense.

Penalties for child molestation can be quite severe, with long-term jail
or prison sentences as well as significant fines, based on a variety of
factors including age of the victim, severity of the crime and other circumstances.
Convicted offenders also face a range of other negative consequences including
exclusion from the optional expungement process, mandatory lifetime inclusion
into the public sex offender database, which means that anyone who lives
in your vicinity may be able to pinpoint you as a sex offender. This type
of consequence can make it very difficult to lead a normal life upon release.
