Types of Sex Offenses in Virginia

Virginia law considers sex crimes to be acts committed against another individual without consent or if the person is incapable of consenting. These crimes may be prosecuted by the state or federal government. Regardless of the charge or who is prosecuting, it is essential for you to hire a qualified Alexandria sex crimes attorney due to the very serious nature of these allegations.

Virginia criminal statutes describe the following sex crimes:

  • Rape
  • Forcible sodomy
  • Aggravated sexual battery
  • Sexual penetration with an object
  • Possessing, producing, distributing, or financing child pornography
  • Carnal knowledge of a minor

What are the Penalties for a Sex Crime Conviction in Virginia?

The penalties for sex crimes are severe and most situations are charged as felonies. Depending on the circumstances of the charge, you could face up to 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $100,000, or both. Even when you are released from prison, the conviction will follow you, particularly if you are required to register as a sex offender. If you learn you are being investigated for this type of crime or have been arrested, you should contact a sex offense lawyer in Alexandria, VA immediately.

Sex Offender Registry

A conviction of a sex crime is very serious. In some situations, a person the accused may be required to register as a sex offender. This is required for convictions of rape, forcible sodomy, object sexual penetration, indecent liberties with a minor, and carnal knowledge of a minor between the ages of 13 and 14 when the convicted person is more than five years older than the victim.

The sex offender registry is an online database that has your name, age, distinguishing characteristics and details about the crime that you were convicted of. This will make it increasingly difficult to find places to work and live. That is why you need the help of an experienced sex crime attorney from Silis & Associates.
