canstockphoto1692752Most typical sex-related crimes defined by California law include a lewd or lascivious act upon a child under 14 years of age, molestation of a child 14 years or older, forcible rape, statutory rape that is defined as consensual intercourse with someone under the age of 18, obligation to register as a sex offender, possession of obscene materials, indecent exposure, lewd act in public place, solicitation of prostitution, and sexual battery which is a forcible sexual activity other than a sexual intercourse.

If a person is convicted of a sexual offense in California, he or she will likely be required to register as a sexual offender. This may also require an individual’s name to be posted on the internet. In addition, this will require annual registration at the local police department where such person resides. Those convicted of sex crimes may be subjected to a lengthy prison sentence or a long probationary sentence with very strict conditions that may include requirement to wear a GPS tracking system or other electronic device as directed by a probation officer.
