Consequences of Sex Crime Convictions
A defendant may face imprisonment in prison or jail for a sex crime conviction. He or she may also face fines, restitution, community service, court-ordered counseling, probation and lifetime sex offender registration. This last penalty, registration as a sex offender, will have a tremendous impact on a defendant’s life. A sex offender’s name, address, photograph and the offense for which he or she has been convicted may all be available online for the public to view. In addition to the impact this will have on a defendant from a social standpoint, it may lead to limited employment, housing, educational and financial opportunities.
