What Is Considered a Sex Crime in California?

A sex crime is defined as an offense that is sexual and unwanted in nature, typically committed when someone perpetuates a sex act on another person without his/her consent. There are two main categories of sex crimes: forcible and non-forcible offenses.

Force could be in the form of physical harm, use or threat of a weapon, or threats. Common examples of forcible sex crimes include sexual battery and rape.

On the other hand, non-forcible sex crimes do not involve force. Common examples of such offenses are indecent exposure or possession of child pornography.

Many sex crimes involve children, which typically leads to harsher penalties since minors are particularly vulnerable and the negative social stigma associated with child sex crimes. Other sex crimes involve inappropriate sexual behavior in public, such as indecent exposure.

Sex crimes in California are generally prosecuted by state court; however, federal sex crimes involve offenses that cross state lines or committed in multiple states, such as child pornography or human trafficking.

Due to the serious nature of sex crimes, a conviction is punishable by years in prison, costly fines, restitution and civil damages to the victim, and registration as a sex offender, which can make it difficult to find a job or a place to live after serving a sentence.
