Alcohol, honest misunderstanding, consent later revoked, simple change of heart and even false allegations underlie many sex offense charges. There is no intercourse or penetration required and a touch over clothing can result in charges carrying life imprisonment. Most often, those charged have a clean record and in no way fit the stereotype of a sex offender. Students and young people in a "partying" environment face a high risk of being wrongly accused. Public accusation as a sex offender often causes loss of employment, and routinely damages people's reputation and relationships.
What Are the Consequences of a Conviction?
While being publicly accused of a sexual crime is devastating enough, the consequences of a conviction for a sexual crime are so drastic and life changing that they can be difficult to comprehend. Bail amounts are extremely high. Many categories of sex offense convictions carry sentences of lifetime supervision and even life imprisonment. All sex offenses require Registration as a Sex Offender (presumptively for life), and restrict you from interacting with minors, even your own children or siblings. A sex crime conviction will also result in a court order that you participate in several years of sex offender treatment and therapy. Other consequences include having where you can and cannot live dictated to you and having your identity as a sexual offender available in online databases that anyone can access.
