Overview of Georgia Sex Crimes
I am fully prepared to tackle any sex crimes case in all metro Atlanta Counties and throughout the State of Georgia. Throughout my career, I have handled cases involving many different types of sex crimes, such as:
Child Molestation: If a person commits an immoral or indecent act with a child under the age of 16, then that individual may be accused of child molestation. This could incur penalties of 5-20 years in prison. If the individual physically injured the child, then it could be charged as aggravated child molestation, punishable by 10-30 years in prison.
Child Pornography: An individual that knowingly possesses a visual depiction of a minor’s body in sexually explicit conduct could be charged with possession of child pornography. If someone was recording or distributing child pornography, then this could incur even more serious consequences.
Indecent Exposure: If a person exposes their private parts in a public place, whether in the act of sex or a lewd appearance, they could be charged with indecent exposure. This may be punished as a misdemeanor.
Pandering/Solicitation: A person who solicits a prostitute or organizes prostitution can be charged with pandering. If convicted, that person could face misdemeanor charges. If a person under 17 was involved, then the accused could face a $5000 fine and up to 5 years in jail.
Pimping: When a person agrees to get a prostitute for another person, arranges a meeting for the purpose of prostitution, directs someone to a house of prostitution, helps or profits by prostitution, then that person could be charged with pimping, which is an aggravated misdemeanor.
Prostitution: If an individual performs an act of sexual intercourse for money, then that person could be accused of prostitution, punishable by a misdemeanor. If a person controls or owns a place where prostitution is practice, then they can be charged with an aggravated misdemeanor.
Rape: When a person forcibly has sex with another without the victim’s consent, they can be charged with rape, which can be punished by up to 20 years and probation for life. In serious circumstances, the offender could be imprisoned for life or even face the death penalty.
Sexual Battery: When an individual makes physical contact with the intimate parts of another person with that person’s consent. This is defined as an aggravated misdemeanor. Sexual battery may be aggravated if there is contact between the both of the persons’ sexual organs.
Sexual Harassment: If a person makes unwanted sexual advances or requests sexual favors toward another, then it could qualify as sexual harassment. While this is most prominent in the workplace, sexual harassment could come from anybody.
