California Megan’s Law
Child molestation in California refers to a wide range of unlawful and indecent sexual activities administered by an adult to a child under the age of 14. Some of these illegal activities may include but are not limited to touching with lascivious or lewd intent, sexual intercourse, and sexual battery. Violations against the vulnerability of children account for some of the most severe consequences a person can face when convicted. Aside from lengthy jail time, societal exile, probation, and counseling, a convicted child molester will have to register as a sex offender under Megan’s Law and provide private information on a public Internet database.
Another form of child molestation is lewd conduct on a minor, which is a felony and may relate to pornography, indecent exposure, and/or prostitution. An act is considered lewd if the aggressor’s intent is to arouse the sexual interest or libido of either themselves or the child. When a person is convicted of child molestation or lewd conduct on a minor in the state of California, the penalties are harsh and the social stigma is even harsher. However, it is important to remember that just because you’re charged with a serious sex crime does not mean you are guilty or that you will face the most severe penalties.
