There are numerous sex related offenses that are criminalized under the California Penal Code. They run the gamut from “lewd and lascivious acts” to forcible rape and sodomy.
If you are convicted of a sexual offense in California, you face a potentially lengthy jail or prison sentence and strict probationary terms depending upon the offense. In addition, the court may require you to register as a sex offender with the local police.. If you fail to register as a sex offender, you can face an additional criminal charge for violating the registration law.
The stigma of being classified as a sex offender can be devastating for both your personal and professional life. An experienced sex crimes attorney can vigorously fight for your chance to avoid this harmful criminal consequence.
