Sex crimes can include a number of different offenses such as the following among others:

  • Rape
  • Prostitution
  • Indecent exposure
  • Statutory rape
  • Solicitation of a minor
  • Possession of child pornography

If you are convicted of any of these offenses, then you could face some serious and significant penalties. In addition to hefty fines and imprisonment, you could be required to register as a sex offender. This is a serious matter as you could be denied housing, employment, and other benefits that require a background check. It is important to recognize that while most sex crimes are charged at the state level, there are numerous offenses that are violations of federal law and can, therefore, be charged at the federal level.
