- Sex offenses against minors, such as indecency with a child or online solicitation of a minor

Most sex offenses in the state are considered felonies, ranging from state jail felonies to second- or third-degree felonies. These crimes carry the following penalties:
- Multiple years in a state jail facility or prison
- Heavy fines
- Mandatory sex offender registration which could be for life
Having to register as a sex offender carries restrictions as to housing and employment and carries a stigma that can damage one’s future indefinitely. How you are charged in any sex offense will depend on the nature of the act, its surrounding circumstances, any previous criminal history, and whether serious bodily injury resulted or a dangerous weapon was used.
Sex crimes are among the most serious and challenging of all criminal charges. They bring with them not only severe criminal penalties but the prospect of severe damage to one’s social standing, personal and career relationships, and media and public opinion. All of this can happen on the mere accusation of a sex offense before any trial has even taken place.
