A Reputation Backed by Real Results
Sex crime accusations are among the most devastating to deal with. These are offenses that carry a heavy social stigma, that can destroy your reputation and your career, and that cause extreme hardship to your family.

What Are Sex Crimes in California?
Sex crime allegations can range from misdemeanors to serious felonies.
Examples of California sex crimes can include:
- Lewd conduct
- Indecent exposure
- Sexual assault
- Sexual battery
- Rape, including date rape and statutory rape
- Possession of child pornography
- Child molestation and child sexual abuse
- Oral copulation by force
- Prostitution and soliciting a prostitute
- Online solicitation
Most sex crimes are charged as felonies; however, some are misdemeanors or wobblers. The penalties you will face in any of these crimes will depend on the nature of the offense, whether it resulted in injuries to the alleged victim, and the type of victim involved (such as a minor or a disabled person).
For example, rape convictions may involve prison sentences ranging from three to eight years. Sexual battery charges can result in penalties ranging from a county jail sentence of a year to a state prison sentence of four years, with a fine of up to $10,000. Furthermore, one act may result in being charged with multiple crimes, which can lead to cumulative penalties.
Sex Offender Registration
One of the most disastrous results of a sex crime conviction is being required to register as a sex offender under California’s Megan’s Law. This registration requirement may be for 10 years, 20 years, or life depending on the type of offense. the Megan's Law Website contains online information for the public that can follow you wherever you go, seriously jeopardizing future employment, higher education, or even finding new friends. Failure to register is in itself a criminal violation for which you will face additional penalties.
