Types of sex offenses

  • Criminal sexual conduct (1st – 5th degrees)

  • Child pornography

  • Prostitution and solicitation of prostitution

  • Indecent exposure and conduct

  • Interference with privacy

  • Violation of predatory offender registration requirements

A conviction for looking at or possessing underage sexually explicit photographs can carry serious felony sentences, including prison, predatory offender registration, lengthy treatment requirements, and internet usage restrictions. No actual intent to download or distribute these files is needed for a conviction – mere “reason to know” is sufficient. Individuals can be convicted of distributing child pornography for simply failing to disable the “sharing” function on peer-to-peer file sharing software.

Child Pornography

While most first-time indecent conduct cases are not felonies, that does not mean that they are not serious. A conviction for this offense will drastically affect a person’s employment, housing, schooling, and social standing in the community. It could also require sex offender treatment and predatory offender registration.

Indecent Conduct

All convictions in felony sex offense cases will require predatory offender registration and some form of sex offender treatment. See our FAQ section for more information on these topics.
