Sex Crime Attorney in Fresno

Types of Sex Crimes

California law is very severe when it comes to punishment for sex crimes. California Penal Code § 261-294 list each of the following, among others, as a sex crime:

  • Rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Sexual abuse
  • Sexual assault
  • Unlawful sexual intercourse
  • Prostitution
  • Carnal abuse of children
  • Indecent exposure

Penalties for such crimes vary and can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. For example, indecent exposure (Pen. Code § 314) is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months of imprisonment and a fine of up to $1,000 (Pen. Code Section 19). Rape of a child, on the other hand, is a felony punishable by 15 years to life (Pen. Code § 269(b)).
