Penalties for conviction of a sex crime

Some misdemeanor sex crimes, such as indecent exposure and patronizing a prostitute, can result in a jail sentence of up to one year. Serious felonies can result in a life sentence. People convicted of felonies must register as sex offenders after release from prison, carrying the stigma of the crime for the rest of their lives. The stakes are high with sex crime charges, affecting where you can live, your employment, and your ability to move freely.
