Sexual Misconduct With a Minor in California
Section 261-269 of the California Penal Code defines sexual conduct with a minor. This includes any person over 21 years of age who engages in a sexual act with a person under the age of 16 or who engages in a sexual act with a minor who is not more than three years older or younger than they are.
What are the Penalties for Sexual Misconduct?
This is a broad definition that doesn’t take into account issues of fraud or false accusations. There are many situations where one may be wrongly accused or lied to regarding these serious charges. Those under 18 years of age are vulnerable to several criminal activities.
For this reason, they are heavily protected under California state laws. This consists of heavy penalties that can follow you for the rest of your life and permanent social stigma.
Personal, professional, and punitive consequences include:
- Registration on national sex offender listings
- Jail or prison time
- Permanent loss of freedoms, including the inability to use the internet or mobile devices
- Large fines and financial restitution
- Permanent loss of reputation in your community
- The inability to obtain or hold certain jobs or to obtain certain employment licenses
- Loss of personal relationships
Understanding Internet Sex Crimes
With the advances in technology, issues of internet sex crimes have risen in the past decades. While many believe they can surf the web with a reasonable measure of privacy, this is not often the case. Criminal investigations can occur without your knowledge and occur for years before you are made aware.
This includes instances of:
- Possessing or distributing pornography that features a minor
- Producing illegal pornography
- Sexual harassment or threats of sexual abuse
- Soliciting minors for sexual acts
When you’ve been accused of a cyber sex crime, your livelihood, freedoms, relationships, housing, employment opportunities, and reputation are on the line. In high-profile cases, your name may forever be linked with the crime, no matter the circumstances behind your accusation or if you were falsely accused.
