The nature of a sex crime against a child can turn things against a defendant in criminal court proceedings. Law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, and juries may feel a sense of prejudice against the defendant from the onset of the case. The urge to protect children from harm is strong, and the desire to protect real victims of abuse is important to law enforcement and political groups.
The sodomy of a minor is a criminal charge that is defined in California Penal Code Section 286. Any penetration under this law, no matter how slight it may be, is still considered sodomy and criminal charges may be pursued. Different penalties may be imposed depending upon the particular circumstances of the case, including the age of the victim, whether an injury occurred and the defendant’s prior record. Penalties may also vary depending upon the jurisdiction.
