Sex Crimes Defense Lawyers in Orange County, CA

A Team You Can Trust in Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino & Los Angeles

In California, the phrase “sex crimes” covers a wide range of offenses. Some involve sexual intercourse, while others involve touching. Exposing genitals in public and making or possessing child pornography are other examples of sex crimes. Regardless of the crime, the conviction of any sex offense can have a devastating impact on the accused’s.

Anyone accused of a sexual offense needs an experienced Orange County sex crime lawyer at their side. The Law Offices of Randy Collins is here to help. These offenses carry a stigma and can result in serious consequences for the accused if not defended aggressively. Unlike many other offenses, an individual convicted of a sex crime may pay for it for the rest of their life.

  • Proven Track Record: These special circumstances make it imperative that the accused seek the advice and counsel of an Orange County sex crime attorney who has a proven track record of success in helping defendants fight these types of charges. The law in California requires that a convicted sex offender, regardless of the nature of the crime, register with their local law enforcement agency. This information is made readily available to the public and, in some cases, as easy as accessing a web site.
  • Early Defense: Ideally, the defense of a sex crime should begin even before the accused is arrested and charged. If you have been questioned for a sex crime or worry that you are suspected of committing a sex offense, seek legal advice immediately. Being prepared to deal with the police and the judicial system can help you avoid a wrongful conviction.

  • Spousal rape
  • Statutory rape

California Sentencing for Sexual Offenses

California is one of the hardest on accused offenders, especially when minors are involved. If found guilty, sentencing will almost always carry a prison sentence along with a substantial fine. They will also be required to join the sex offender’s registry, where their name and address, along with the nature of their conviction, are available to the general public.

Being convicted of a sex crime will have lasting repercussions on the defendant’s life. Having an Orange County sex crime attorneys who has extensive experience in this area of the law is a necessity for those planning to reduce or beat their charges.

The most common charges individuals face are:

  • Acts of lewd and lascivious conduct: This charge is most often referring to the sexual molestation of a child under the age of 14. With lewd being such a broad term, it can include a variety of scenarios that may or may not involve contact with a sexual organ. Depending on the circumstances and age of the child, prison sentences range from 3 to 16 years in prison. This crime also counts as a strike under the California Three Strikes Law.
  • Statutory Rape: The primary difference between “rape” and “statutory rape” is consent. An adult can consent to have sex. A minor cannot. It is, therefore, a violation of California law to have sexual intercourse with a minor outside of a marital relationship. Even if the minor initiates the sexual intercourse, it is still a crime.

Statutory rape can also refer to oral acts and intercourse between two minors.

The crime can be committed without using force.

Statutory rape is a misdemeanor if the accused and the alleged victim were no more than three years apart in age. If the alleged victim was more than three years younger than the accused, the crime is a felony. The crime is a more serious felony if the minor had not reached 16 years of age, and the accused was at least 21 years of age.

  • Sexual Battery or Assault: Sexual battery or assault charges arise from the unsolicited touching of another for the purpose of sexual gratification, abuse, or arousal. “Intimate parts” are generally defined as sex organs, buttocks, or female breasts.

These types of charges can be lodged against a medical professional who attempts to convince the victim that the touching is part of medical treatment. A felony charge of sexual battery requires proof that the accused unlawfully restrained another person and, while that person was restrained, either touched an “intimate part” of that person without consent or caused that person to unwillingly touch an “intimate part” of the accused.

    "Caring and Genuine Attorney"
    I called the office and right off the bat, I was super impressed at how much help I was receiving without even meeting in person. Chris (the guy who answered my call) is extremely nice and he explains everything so well. He told me how he used to work at the courts for many years (that gave me relief that he knew what he was talking about). Randy (the attorney) is delightful as well and put my worries to rest with his expertise and knowledge. You can tell by his demeanor and how passionate he speaks, that he is genuine and he cares about his clients. This office handles everything from DUI cases to just about anything criminal related.

He knew exactly how to address the problem and had a plan of action and after a long 2 years, he won my case I appreciate every effort Randy & Chris have done. They are such a great team to work with and I would recommend him in a heartbeat

    "Glad I had Randy to guide me through it."
    I had the unfortunate experience of being too drunk one night in DTF which led to a Drunk in Public charge. I was able to hire Randy after looking online for a good lawyer. I ended up paying about $3,500 for his services and he got the case dismissed. It was an easy process. It was my first time getting in trouble with the law, and I am glad I had Randy and Chris there to guide me through.
