Sex Crime Penalties in California

The penalties for sex crimes can vary depending on the specific offense and other factors, such as a criminal history. In California, most sex crimes are considered felonies punishable by prison time and significant fines, with some sentences ranging up to life in prison. A conviction also can result in mandating a person to register as a sex offender, meaning they must follow certain restrictions and be listed in a public database. It is essential to seek legal counsel from an experienced sex crime attorney if you are facing charges.
