Sex crimes are broad and varied in California, and are considered to be some of the most serious offenses. Indecent exposure/lewd conduct, solicitation, and possession of child pornography are generally charged as misdemeanors. Child molestation, rape and sexual battery are felonies.
The sentences for these charges vary greatly depending upon the individual charge and the facts of each case. However, many sex crime offenses are punishable by prison terms and extensive fines. Moreover, most sex crime offenders are required to enroll in the sex offender registry, which, in many cases is for life, and which can greatly affect where an offender’s may live, work and their quality of life.
