LEARN ABOUT THE TYPES OF SEX OFFENSES IN CALIFORNIA
Sexual assault convictions are extremely serious in California. A person convicted of sex crimes may receive a longer prison sentence than a career criminal — plus lifetime registration as a sex offender. The Law Offices of Richard Dudek offers a former prosecutor’s experience to build your defense.
SEX CRIMES FALL INTO THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES:
- Rape by force, without consent or on a minor
- Rape of a spouse or marital rape
- Oral copulation by force, without consent or on a minor
- Sodomy by force, without consent or on a minor
- Sexual battery
- Assault with intent to commit rape, oral copulation or sodomy
- Continuous sexual abuse of a minor
- Contacting a minor with the intent to commit a sex offense
- Sexual penetration with a foreign object
- Child molestation (lewd acts)
- Sexually exploiting a minor
- Sex crimes prosecutions are a very specific subset of criminal prosecutions.
Sentencing is different from most felonies, and certain statutory limits to prison time do not apply. Richard Dudek knows the details of every sex crime law in California and is available around the clock.
MEGAN’S LAW REGISTRATION
California law lists many registrable sex offenses — meaning that if convicted you must register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. Sex offender registration involves giving the state your name, address and photograph for a public online database. Your registration must be renewed annually or every time you change residences for as long as you work, live or attend school in California. Failure to register is a criminal offense that can be charged as a felony.
DISCOVER HOW CALIFORNIA’S SEXUALLY VIOLENT PREDATOR ACT AFFECTS PAROLE
California’s Sexually Violent Predator (SVP) Act lets the state institute civil commitment proceedings to keep prisoners incarcerated if the prisoner has:
- Prior conviction for specific sexually violent offenses
- A diagnosed mental disorder likely to lead to another sexually violent crime
If you face an SVP parole hearing, let the Law Offices of Richard Dudek help you avoid a lifetime civil commitment. We work diligently for your release into the community.
SEX CRIMES FROM BEHIND A COMPUTER SCREEN
The Internet has expanded illicit access or create sexual material. Using a website to produce or exchange pictures of children engaging in sex acts results in child pornography charges. Law enforcement personnel set up Internet sting operations to trap adults seeking sex with teens or children. We use experts to analyze computers, as it is easy to download child pornography accidentally when downloading legal material.
APPLYING CALIFORNIA’S THREE-STRIKES LAW TO SEX CRIME SENTENCING
Some sex offenses count as “strikes” under California’s three-strikes law and can result in lifelong imprisonment. This includes marital rape in domestic violence cases. Because of the way the courts interpret California’s rape laws, every sex act counts as a separate crime — so you can be charged with multiple sex offenses for one sexual encounter — leading to three strikes in a single trial.
