Is a Sex Crime a Misdemeanor or a Felony?

Some sex crimes are felonies, while others are considered misdemeanors. Many sex crimes are considered "wobblers" in California. This means the crime may be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony, at the discretion of the prosecution or court. Factors considered are the severity of the crime, any injuries inflicted, the age of the victim or victims, and the length of time during which repeated crimes were committed.

California Penalties for a Sex Crime

The penalties for sex crimes vary depending on the crime and the ruling of the court. It is important to note, however, that penalties for sex crimes are generally very harsh. Jail or prison time can result, including life imprisonment. What is worse, a person may have to register on a state or national sex offender registry if convicted. Certain California laws prohibit a judge from showing leniency in some circumstances.

Violent Sex Crimes in CA

Violent sexual crimes, such as those listed below, can result in misdemeanor or felony charges, depending on the circumstances of the case:

Wobbler Sex Crimes in California

In California, these types of crimes are known as "wobblers," being charged as misdemeanors or felonies. In the majority of the U.S., prostitution and solicitation are against the law. To give a sexual act in exchange for money or to request or offer money can both be punished by law. You could have to spend time in jail as well as permanently register as a sex offender.

Our Riverside sex crime attorney can also help defend you against:

  • Indecent exposure
  • Lewd conduct
  • Internet stings

Are Those Convicted of “Minor” Sex Crimes Still Required to Register as a Sex Offender?

Convictions for most sex crimes require lifetime registration as a sex offender, even if some of those crimes may be considered "minor". Crimes related to minors include: child molestation, child pornography, and statutory rape. As these do involve children under the age of eighteen, those convicted will face harsh penalties. The help that Grech & Packer can offer is invaluable in attempting to prevent such a grave consequence.

Does a Convicted Juvenile Have to Register as a Sex Offender?

Convicted minors are required to register for certain offenses. If the charges were addressed in a juvenile court, the registrant cannot be publicly disclosed on the official website listing sex offenders. Local law enforcement agencies may still choose to notify the public of these offenders if they deem that there is sufficient risk to do so.
