Redlands Sex Crime Attorney
Understanding California’s Sex Crime Laws
A Sex Crime is any misdemeanor or felony of sexual nature. Sex Crimes fall into a multitude of areas including:
- Child sexual abuse
- Date rape
- Statutory Rape
- Lewd conduct
- Lewd acts with a child
- Oral copulation by force
- Possession of child pornography
- Sexual Battery
If you are being investigated or have been charged with any of these allegations, it is imperative you remain silent until you discuss your matter with a Defense Attorney.

What are the Penalties for Sex Crimes?
A pending investigation should not be discussed with a Detective, Police or District Attorney. It should also be noted that speaking with a Psychologist or Psychiatrist, is not privileged in the State of California. A Psychologist is able to discuss admissions made by their client (Tarasoff rule), and any admissions to these offenses assist in the filing of charges, by a Prosecuting entity or District Attorney’s Office.
These cases are extremely serious, as they can hold a multitude of years in State Prison and sexual registration (often for life) pursuant to Penal Code 290.
Additional Consequences may include a ban on possessing firearms and the inability to expunge the conviction.

Sex Offender Registry
One of the most damaging penalties someone can receive is having to register as a sex offender. The sex offender registry is online database that has your name, age, distinguishing characteristics and details about the crime that you were convicted of. Once you are registered as a sex offender this stays with you for a life and will make it increasingly difficult to find places to work and live. That is why you need the help of an experienced sex crime attorney from Kassel and Kassel.
