Sex Crimes Criminal Defense Lawyer in Alameda, CA

Facing sex crime charges?

In California, any non-consensual sexual act involving an adult is considered a sex crime. Suggestive behaviors, unwelcome sex or sexual touching, and other types of sexual misconduct fall under sex offenses.

Due to the nature of the offense, sex crimes are some of the most complex cases in the criminal justice system. If you’re facing allegations of sexual misconduct, you should speak to a criminal defense attorney immediately to discuss your case and prepare your defense.

Penalties for Sex Crimes

Getting convicted of a sex crime has grave consequences. You’ll be required to register as a sex offender. Moreover, sexual offenses are punishable by incarceration, hefty fines and fees, giving up certain assets, immigration consequences, and loss of right to own a firearm.

For example, a misdemeanor sexual battery conviction is punishable by up to six months in county jail and a $2,000 fine. However, a felony conviction for sexual battery incurs a penalty of imprisonment for one to four years, and a fine ranging from $2,000 to $10,000.
