Sex Crimes Are Incredibly Complex Cases
If you’ve been inadvertently caught up in charges of sex crimes, Atlanta’s Teiger Law Center may be able to help you. Allowing, assisting or hiding a sex offender, accidental publication of a rape victim’s name, and, in some cases, statutory rape are all potential traps for otherwise innocent people. Statutory rape (under age 16, even if your partner was consensual), male or female, or any sort of sexual contact or activity, including touching of the other person’s breasts or sexual organs or buttocks, oral sex, or sexual intercourse is a misdemeanor in some cases, a felony in others, depending on extenuating circumstances, such as age, and sentencing can include incarceration ranging from one to 20 years’ prison sentence.
Punishments for sex crimes are harsh. Defendants face the possibility of jail time, probation, steep monetary fines, court costs, rehabilitation, a lifelong criminal record of misdemeanor or felony charges, and mandatory sex offender registration. You will not be able to vote or own a gun. Under certain circumstances, convicted sex offenders in Georgia must register with the Sheriff, as well. Failure to comply is a felony.
