What is a sex crime?
A sex crime is an illegal sex act, or illegal form of human sexual behavior, as defined by the state and federal government. People who are convicted of sex crimes are called “sex offenders”. In the state of California, all sex offenders must list them selves on the Sex Offender Registry for an indefinite amount of time. This Registry is accessible to the public, which means that future employers, landlords, educational facilities, and neighbors will be able to obtain this information.
Frequently Committed Sex Crimes
There are a variety of sex acts that are considered illegal. Commonly committed sex crimes include: rape, statutory rape, date rape, lewd conduct, indecent exposure, sexual abuse, sexual assault, child pornography, child molestation, prostitution, pandering, and distribution of illegal pornography.
