Sex Offenses

Sex offenses are extremely delicate cases. They can result in severe penalties.

 

WHAT ARE SEX OFFENSES?

Simply stated, sex offenses are forms of sexual behavior that are criminal. Criminal sexual behavior can often involve sexual activity that is consensual when the consenting parties are below the legal age of consent. These crimes also include the possession and dissemination of child pornography as well as solicitation of minors for sexual activity. Sex offenses can be prosecuted in both state and federal courts.

 

PUNISHMENT FOR SEX OFFENSES

Sex offenses, especially against children, carry the most severe punishment absent homicide cases. In addition to lengthy prison sentences, sex crimes can carry mandatory sex offender registration, either for a period of 10 years or for life. Sex offender registry conditions are harsh and can include restrictions on where a person lives, works, shops as well as limitations to internet and email communications.

 

Oftentimes sex offenses are prosecuted using forensic evidence such as DNA, evidence from medical legal exams and computer forensic evidence.
