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.
