How A Conviction Can Be Determined

The resolution for a sex crime charge can happen in various ways. Most convictions result in high fines and mandatory prison sentencing, and you may also have to register as a sex offender. In addition to the type of sex crime, there are other factors that the court will use to determine the severity of consequences.

If The Sex Allegation Involves A Minor

Other factors include the:

  • Age of consent
  • Age difference between parties
  • Sexual orientation and sexual preference of all parties involved
  • Employment status of the accused (particularly more severe for those who have easy access to minors)
  • Past sex offenses

If The Sex Allegation Involves Rape Or Assault

Other factors include if the accuser:

  • Was restrained
  • Consented
  • Was intoxicated
  • Intended to engage in the act itself

The factors in each case vary, and to accurately identify what you may face, it is in your best interest to consult one of our experienced criminal defense attorneys.
