Sex Crimes Defense Attorneys in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California
Sex crimes are loosely defined and difficult to defend against. Since human sexuality is an intensely personal matter, laws seeking to regulate its practice are seen as intrusive and offensive.
The general term “sex crime” varies from state to state and sometimes from county to county. There are a few key definitions and terms that are used to define exactly what a sex crime is.
One of the most important legal issues in determining a sex crime is age. Each state’s “age of consent” varies and can span from 16 to 21 years of age. It is important that the age of consent be known as the court defines any sexual activity with one under that age to be inexcusable and is dealt with harshly. Since a child is not seen by the law as being able to understand certain laws, any sex with a child is automatically dealt with as a statutory offense, no matter the child’s consent.
The broad term of “sex crimes” includes several other types of acts. These include, but are not limited to sexual harassment, assault, rape, molestation and pornography. Because these definitions vary significantly across jurisdictions, a charge of having committed a sex crime can often be misleading and prone to error. Further, since laws regarding sexual activity change over time, the laws themselves are constantly in flux. For example, long-established laws regarding pornography have been stuck down by the changes in society and technology.
