Sex Crime Charges in Georgia

Georgia has established a broad range of sex offenses with specific penalties for each. Sex crimes can range from misdemeanors to serious felonies that involve potential mandatory sex offender registration. 

These crimes can include but are not limited to:

  • Indecent exposure
  • Lewd conduct
  • Prostitution
  • Solicitation
  • Sexual assault or battery
  • Rape, statutory rape, and date rape
  • Possession or distribution of child pornography
  • Solicitation of minors over the internet
  • Sexting

These types of crimes can create life-long psychological trauma for alleged victims. However, those who are unfairly accused of such crimes face a damaged future that can also last a lifetime, from lengthy prison sentences and fines to a permanent criminal record that will jeopardize future prospects in the job market, the housing market, and more.

Sex Offender Registration 

If you are convicted of a sex crime felony, you will face mandatory sex offender registration. This online database is available to the public. It includes your identity as well as information about your alleged crime. This will greatly impact where you can live and work as well as where you can go. 

Sex offender registration is generally divided into categories based on the level of danger or threat you pose to the public. Level 1 is considered the lowest level of threat while Level 2 is considered a moderate threat. Level 3 is the most serious as it considers these offenders to have the likeliest possibility of committing a repeat offense.
