Types of California Sex Crime Charges
There are numerous charges involving sex crimes in California that include but are not limited to:
The punishments for these crimes in California range from misdemeanor to felony, which means the sentence range as well and could include fines up to $10,000.00 or imprisonment for up to ten years. Your prior criminal record, your age, and if you have been convicted of a sex crime before also can play a role in the significance of your sentence. Whether it is your first offense or not, it is important to have an attorney who can explain the potential consequences of being charged with the crime.
Additionally, some California sex crimes can require that the perpetrator register as a sex offender. Under the Sex Offender Registration Act, every person who has been convicted in any court in California, or in any federal, or military court of various acts outlined above must register to the chief of police in which the person is residing, or the sheriff of the county if the person is residing in an unincorporated area or city that has no police department, and, additionally, with the chief of police of a campus of the University of California, the California State University, or community college if the person is residing upon the campus or in any of its facilities, within five working days of coming into, or changing the person’s residence within, any city, county, or city and county, or campus in which the person temporarily resides.

Beating California Sex Crime Charges
Depending on the charges you face, we can frame a defense around not know what you were in possession of, having consent, or even being falsely accused. We can also look at the aspects of your arrest or citation, such as if the police illegally searched your belongings, or that the police did not have probable cause to search you or your property. We will do everything that we can to get your charges dropped, reduced, or get your sentenced reduced. While getting acquitted, having your charge reduced, or getting your sentence reduced are all options, those options require a thorough understanding of the law.
Even as an individual facing criminal charges, you have rights, and it is important to know those rights and make sure that they were not violated in any way when you were arrested or charged. Without extensive knowledge of your rights when it comes to police searches, Miranda rights, and your rights when it comes to arrest, it is extremely difficult to get a dismissal or reduction. Do not try and fight these charges on your own; Weber Law is ready to help you today.
