Child molestation is defined as any kind of sexual activity between an adult and a minor, though lesser charges such as unlawful sexual intercourse may also fall under this umbrella term. In the state of California, anyone under the age of 18 is considered a minor. However, for cases of non-forcible sexual intercourse between an adult and a minor, the charges are directly dependent on the age difference between the defendant and the alleged victim. If you have been charged with unlawful sexual activity with a minor, these laws could affect you. The sexual assault attorneys from our law office can review your case free of charge and determine the best defense for the charges against you.

If you have been convicted of a sexual crime in the state of California, you are required by law (California Penal Code Section 290) to register with the state as a sex offender. This must be done no later than five days after your birthday or no later than five days after changing residences, and must be done annually for as long as you live or work in the state. A failure to do so can result in criminal charges being brought against you. If you or a loved one has failed to register, our sexual assault attorneys can help. Our lawyers will see that your legal rights are protected and that you receive a fair trial.
