Penalties for Sex Crimes & the Sex Offender Registry in CA
Being charged with a sex crime in California is extremely serious. These criminal charges bring about a number of unique challenges that other types of charges do not. Being convicted of even the smallest sex offense will have a negative impact on the rest of your life. You will have to deal with the social stigma, not only of having a criminal record, but of possibly living life as a registered sex offender.
Sex offender registration leads to a number of serious restrictions on your personal and professional life. Having your name on this registry can also severely damage your reputation, making it difficult to find a job or be accepted into certain social circles.
