There are many consequences for sexual assault in New Jersey that could potentially change life as you know it. If you have been charged with a sexual offense, you will want an experienced attorney who will fight for your rights and make sure that those rights are protected.
We know how to provide the help you need if you are facing sex crime charges. Some of them are, but are not limited to:
Child pornography is the visual representation of a person under the age of 16 engaged in sexual activity or the visual representation of minors engaging in lewd behavior designed to arouse the viewer in a sexual way.
Sexual assault is any type of sexual contact/behavior that occurs without consent of the person receiving it. Some examples of this could be rape, child molestation, incest, fondling, and attempted rape. It becomes aggravated under examples of the following circumstances: the victim is younger than thirteen-years-old, the victim is at least thirteen but less than sixteen-years-old, there was use of physical force or coercion, and the victim has severe personal injury.
Invasion of Privacy/"Revenge Pornography"
"Revenge Pornography" is the act of putting a lewd/nude photo or video of a person online without their consent.
Endangering the Welfare of a Minor
Some examples consist of but are not limited to:
Knowingly authorizing a child under a defined age to engage in an occupation involving a substantial risk of danger to the minor's life or health
Knowingly permitting a child under a defined age to enter or remain in a house of prostitution.
When a parent, guardian, or other person legally charged with the care or custody of a minor, does not exercise reasonable diligence in the control of the child to prevent them from becoming a "dependent child" or a "delinquent child."
This is essentially exposing one's genitals in public for the purpose of sexual gratification. It would not include public urination.
Megan's Law and Community/Parole Supervision for Life
Conviction for some, but not all, of these charges leads to mandatory sex offender registration (Megan's Law), or parole supervision for life (formerly known as community supervision for life). This is not forever.
