Sex Crime Lawyer Serving Richmond Hill & Hinesville

In the state of Georgia, sex crime offenses can either be charged as misdemeanors or felonies. In many cases, sex crimes are considered felonies because they involve physical abuse. Some sex crimes, however, are lesser offenses that receive lighter penalties. Georgia also has another category that constitutes sex crimes that are neither a misdemeanor nor felony charge. Such charges are classified as "wobblers." Sex crime charges carry serious penalties that can negatively affect your life. Speak with one of our Richmond Hill criminal defense attorneys from Balbo & Gregg, Attorneys at Law, PC if you need legal assistance with your case. We can defend clients in state, federal, and military courts.

Types of Sex Offenses Prosecuted in Georgia

Georgia Code §16-6 lays out the various sexual offenses that are prosecuted in the state of Georgia. Sex crimes can be classified in a variety of ways. Some of the most common sex crimes in Georgia include:

  • Rape
  • Sexual assault
  • Child molestation
  • Public indecency
  • Lascivious acts
  • Possession of child pornography

When a sex crime is committed against a minor, the offense is classified as a felony. Although all sex crimes are very serious, statutory rape, child molestation, and child pornography are the most aggressively prosecuted sex crime charges.

You can face fines, imprisonment, and mandatory sex offender registration if you are convicted of a sex crime. Some sex crimes, such as multiple rape offenses, even include a lifetime sentence. Aside from the criminal penalties you can face upon conviction, you can experience a damaged reputation and loss of relationships. If you are required to register as a sex offender, you will have difficulty finding a job or place to live. All sex crime charges carry negative connotations within the public community.
