Sex Crimes in California
Sex crimes range from misdemeanors that can result in up to a year in a county jail along with fines and probation to more serious felonies that can land you in a state prison from a year up to life. They can also lead to mandatory sex offender registration which, in itself, is a kind of punishment and stain on your future that can last for 10 years, 20 years, or for life. You will be required to remain on the registry for as long as your case mandates; failure to re-register when necessary will result in a new criminal charge. You will also be restricted as to where you can live and work.
Sex crimes are generally based on sexual activity that is committed by force or through violence, fear or threat, menace, or duress. Where the alleged victim is a minor or was sexually violated due to being drugged, intoxicated, or otherwise unable to consent, the penalties may be enhanced.
