Sex offenses include criminal sexual behaviors such as prostitution or rape. The penalties for sex offenses can be serious and life-changing. Child molestation, child pornography, indecent exposure, rape, armed sexual assault, prostitution, solicitation of prostitution, voyeurism, or any other type of criminal sexual behavior is considered a sex offense if committed.
Most sex offenses are considered felonies. Public indecency is a lesser sex offense, therefore is considered a misdemeanor. There are serious consequences to committing a sex offense. A person charged with a sex offense can face jail time, probation, parole, significant fines, registration requirements, loss of the right to vote or own a weapon, and social losses. Many sex offenses have no witnesses, so the decision rests on the strength of the evidence presented. False accusations may occur and it may be difficult to defend.
A criminal lawyer may be able to minimize the charges that a person charged with a sex offense may face. A criminal lawyer knows the law and the state statutes for the different crimes, including definitions, punishments and guidelines. An attorney can prepare your defense by evaluating the situation and evidence available.
