Common Types of Sex Crime Offenses
Sex crimes in the state of Georgia include: spousal rape, sexual battery, sodomy, child molestation, pandering, rape, date rape, pimping, pandering, bigamy, incest, aggravated sexual battery, distribution of obscene materials, public indecency, necrophilia, bestiality and more. Certain sex crimes require mandatory sex offender registration, which will have life-altering consequences for the accused.
With mandatory sex offender registration, you are required to register no matter where you are, or what state you live in for the rest of your life. What's more, failure to register is a felony offense and can send you straight to prison for many years. As a registered sex offender, you will be required to provide your headshot, your home address and what crime you were convicted for. This information will be public for all to see including your neighbors, your employers and your friends. It's impossible to escape the social stigma associated with being a registered sex offender and it will haunt you wherever you go.
