Consequences of a Sex Crime Conviction

If you are convicted of a sex crime, you could face criminal punishments in addition to civil penalties. Along with jail or prison time, those convicted of sex crimes face the social backlash of having to register as a sex offender and giving the public access to your crime and the information pertaining to it. The exact penalties for a conviction will depend on the nature of the alleged crime, as well as whether the crime is a misdemeanor or felony.

A rape conviction could carry penalties such as:

  • First-degree felony – 2-25 years in prison
  • Second-degree – 2-7 years in prison
  • Third-degree – 1.5-5 years in prison
