Types of Sex Offenses

Sex crimes are offenses that involve sexual intercourse or sexual conduct. Most of these offenses are charged as felonies, which means that a conviction could result in years in prison and hefty fines.

Washington laws define various types of offenses as sex crimes, including, but not limited to:

  • Rape
  • Child molestation
  • Sexual misconduct with a minor
  • Indecent liberties
  • Voyeurism

How Long Is the Prison Sentence for a Sex Crime Conviction?

As with any crime, the exact penalties for a sex offense depend on the facts of the case. For instance, a person convicted of rape in the second degree (a class A felony) faces up to life imprisonment and/or a fine of up to $50,000. Voyeurism is a class C felony. The maximum prison sentence for a conviction of this offense is 5 years, and the maximum fine is $10,000.

What is the Sex Offender Registry?

As mentioned earlier, a prison sentence isn't the only sanction imposed upon a person convicted of a sex crime; they may also be required to register as a sex offender. The sex offender registry is online database that has your name, age, distinguishing characteristics and details about the crime that you were convicted of. This means that they must periodically provide to the county sheriff details of their offense and their personal information, some of which is accessible by the public. A sex offender registration requirement can have numerous consequences, such as being stigmatized and facing adverse reactions from the community.
