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

Potential Penalties for Sexual Assault Charges in California

If you have been charged with sexual assault or battery, you may be facing one of the below penalties according to California Penal Code Section 243.4:

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

  • So Relieved!

    “I found Mr. Jacob through the AVVO website. After calling and emailing many lawyers, Mr. Jacob was frank and honest with me as he explained to me how unfortunate my legal situation was and what we could do together to quickly handle the case before it was out of our hands. I appreciated his honesty and his desire to act quickly while maintaining communication throughout the process. He was honestly the only lawyer that I felt I could trust, even through the phone, and that was something that made me stick with him. It was my first time experiencing the legal system with a domestic violence charge and while I was adamant I was the victim, the authorities felt otherwise. As you can imagine the stress was unfathomable. But three days later, Mr. Jacob granted me the news that my case had been dismissed and the biggest weight of my life had been lifted. As someone who is experiencing the world of court and lawyers for the first time, a young female in her twenties, who was leaving an abusive long term relationship, I was scared and unsure from the beginning of who to even chose as my defense. I felt as though the wrong choice could lead me to certain doom... luckily, it was the right one. I can't thank him enough for making a tough time a little bit easier and I would never wish you would need his intelligence and experience to help you or a loved one, but I can say without a doubt I would recommend him.”
