Types Of Sexual Offenses And Penalties
There are many criminal offenses referred to as “sex crimes” in California, including prostitution, child pornography, child molestation, lewd conduct, solicitation, sexual assault, and rape. The penalties that accompany convictions for these crimes vary depending on the nature of the offense itself and the defendant’s criminal history.
They may include, fines, incarceration in jail or prison, and mandatory registration as a sex offender. At Okabe & Haushalter, we understand the difficulties in being connected with a sex crime, and we are committed to protecting the rights of those who have been arrested and charged with such crimes. If you have been charged with any of the above offenses, or a similar offense, we can aggressively defend in your criminal case in an effort to obtain a reduction in your charges or exoneration.
Impact Of A Sex Crime Conviction
Sex crime convictions can bring about a host of consequences and difficulties that go beyond the criminal penalties you must face. A criminal record, as well as lifetime registration as a sex offender, can make it difficult for you to find employment, obtain credit or loans for large purchases, and apply for secondary education. In addition, the stigma of being convicted of a sex crime can wreak havoc in your personal and professional life.
It is important that you have the help of a criminal defense attorney who can fight against your charges with the intent of favorably resolving your case and returning you to your place of residence having been cleared of wrongdoing.
