The Stigma of Sex Crimes
The sentence given in court is only part of the punishment for defendants charged with a sex crime. In addition to the legal penalty, there is a societal punishment, often even before a conviction in the stigma attached to sex crimes. Defendants often find they lose employment and even the support of family and friends, either before or after they are convicted in a court of law.
The charges which are considered sex crimes in the state of Georgia include:
- Statutory rape
- Child molestation
- Enticing a child for indecent purposes
- Sexual assault/sexual battery
Penalties for Conviction of Sex Crimes
There is a broad range of penalties for sex crimes, depending on the crime and whether it is charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. Prison sentences range from year or less in jail to life in prison. Even after you are released, you will be required to register as a sex offender, which means that neighbors, employers, and law enforcement will have to be notified whenever you move to a new area. The conviction will follow you for the rest of your life.
