SEX OFFENSES

Sex Offenses Attorney in Arlington Virginia

What is a Sex Offense?

There are seven major sex crimes that often receive significantly high or maximum penalties.

Molestation and indecency of a child, sexual assault of a child, and possession of child pornography are the three sex offenses associated with minors. Rape and aggravated sexual assault, statutory rape, internet-based sex offenses, and failure to properly register as a sex offender once convicted by law are the other four major sex offenses.

Maximum penalties are increased when crimes also include: the death of a victim or victims, severe physical injuries, and/or abduction. Minimum penalties can be decreased when it is ruled that the defendant committed the crime under force from another person or entity. Penalties can also be decreased for a defendant when they assist in identifying more defendants of sex crimes. 

Those accused of a sex offense often suffer both legal repercussions as well as social ones. Because of this, sex offenses are often penalized with severe sentences and legal fines. Many of those convicted of a sex crime are registered as a sex offender in subsequence with the outcome of a case.

Common Penalties for Sex Offenses

1

Common penalties include Class A, B, C, and D felonies.

A felony is the most serious crime that can be committed. These crimes have lengthy prison sentences, fines, and even a permanent loss of freedoms.

For felonies, legal fines often exceed the average amount when compared to other crimes. Fines of up to $250,000 can be issued, and prison time can range from 25 years to full lifetime sentences. Certain sex offenses classified as Class D felonies face penalties of 5 or fewer years in prison, and fines up to $250,000.

Another common penalty is a misdemeanor.

A misdemeanor is considered a lesser crime than a felony. Misdemeanors usually involve jail time, smaller fines than a felony charge, and other disciplinary actions. Often, misdemeanors can be penalized with fines up to $100,000. Jail time can range from 6 months to 1 year.
