ARE YOU FACING CHARGES OF A SEX CRIME?
A sex crime is not a particular crime, but rather a broad range of crimes. One common type of sex crime is child pornography . This offense includes possession of child pornography, producing child pornography, or selling and distributing it. Any sexually explicit photos or videos of a minor under the age of 18 could result in a conviction, even if the individual had no idea the subject of the photos was underage.
Another sexually-based offense which can inadvertently involve a minor is statutory rape . When an adult engages in sexual activity with a minor under the age of consent, it is viewed as statutory rape, even if the activity was consensual. It is not uncommon for a couple to be in a romantic relationship, but because of the age difference, one of the individuals could be put behind bars.
When an adult attempts to persuade or entice a minor who is under the age of consent to meet them in order to engage in sexual activity, the adult could be charged with solicitation of a minor . Even if the offense is never actually carried out, the mere attempt is enough to be charged. The penalties for child solicitation could include up to 20 years in prison as well as $15,000 in fines, so it is important that you do everything in your power to defend yourself. Another crime that involves life-altering penalties is sexual exploitation . When an individual employs or persuades someone to engage in sexual relations for their financial benefit, such as in sex trafficking, the individual could be facing felony charges and years in prison.
Prostitution can be part of sex trafficking or can be done on an individual basis. Under Alabama law, engaging in or soliciting sexual acts in exchange for money or another form of compensation is illegal. Again, even if the individuals never engage in sexual activity, the agreement is enough to garner a conviction. Whether you were accused of hiring a prostitute, working as a prostitute, or causing another person to engage in prostitution, you need a strong attorney to act in your defense. Another common type of sex crime is sexual abuse . Frist degree sexual abuse occurs when a person forces another to engage in sexual activities and the penalties could include up to 10 years in prison. Second degree sexual abuse charges may be brought against a person who was accused of sexual abuse against a victim between the ages of 12 and 16.
