Mandatory Sex Offender Registry for Convicted Criminals

Following a conviction, offenders are required to place their name onto a registry list for the rest of their lives. The sex offender registry is public information, and is easily accessible to individuals, potential employers, family members, and friends with a quick internet search. When your name is on the list, identifiable information will be available to the public, including your name and age, your height and weight, the crime of which you were convicted, tattoos and scars, and even your address and photo.

Crimes that could leave you facing the sex offender registry include:

  • Sexual conduct with a minor
  • Sexual assault or battery
  • Rape
  • Indecent exposure
  • Child pornography
  • Statutory or date rape
  • Chat room misconduct
  • Prostitution
  • Solicitation of a minor

Sexual Battery Charges in California

In California, sexual battery is defined under Penal Code Section 243.4 as a person that touches the intimate body parts of another person while being restrained by the accused. Depending on the circumstances of the arrest, you can be charged with misdemeanor or felony sexual battery.

Misdemeanor Sexual Battery - If you have been charged with a sexual battery misdemeanor you may be facing up to 6 months in jail and $2,000 to $3,000 in fines.

Felony Sexual Battery - If you were charged with felony sexual battery, your sentencing can vary greatly. You may face a prison sentence anywhere from 1 to 4 years and face fines from $2,000 to $10,000.

  • A prison sentence of 3, 6 or 8 years (sometimes longer depending on the circumstances and age of the alleged victim)
  • You may also face fines from $2,000 to $25,000 if the charges involve rape of a minor

    “Mr. Jacob proved the pills belonged to someone else and the case was dismissed.”

    Benji

  • A true Icon of Justice

    “First, let me start by saying that Mr. Ben Jacob deserves to be recognized for his hard work and representation. There are really no words to express my gratitude and thanks for the outstanding effort in obtaining the exceptional outcome on my case. Mr. Jacob went above and beyond what any other Attorney has ever done for me. When I was remanded into the sheriff's custody the feelings of hopelessness and despair were overwhelming. The D.A. and the Judge made it clear that there were no chances left for me, and with a lifelong stigma of negative trailing behind me, I truly believed I was destined to stay in jail. Mr. Jacob kept my life from making a permanent turn in the wrong direction. Because Mr. Jacob truly cares about his clients and their well being I was released from custody. Ben Jacob not only believed in me he went to bat against the whole courtroom on my behalf. Mr. Jacob defends his clients with conviction and vigor, not backing down, and unwavering in his defense. Despite a troubled past and a bad reputation, Mr. Jacob treated me with dignity and respect. I'm able to be the mommy my two-year-old needs because Mr. Jacob believed in me when everyone else wanted me in custody. Mr. Jacob is a true artist in his profession. Thank You seems ridiculous in comparison to the true effect of Mr. Jacob’s impact in my life.”
