Frequently Asked Questions about Sex Crimes in New Jersey
Most likely. The vast majority of sex crimes have, as a consequence of conviction, the requirement to register as a sex offender. The length of time you will have to comply with this registration requirement will depend on the severity of your offense; the most serious sex crimes such as aggravated sexual assault can result in lifetime obligations to register as a sex offender. Because sex offender registries are publicly accessible databases, having to register can seriously impact your ability to find employment, housing, or educational or financial opportunities since the databases do not provide much information about the circumstances of your underlying offense. Sex offender registration is a fact to consider when decisions are made as to how to resolve your case.
“Aggravating factors” in a sex crime case will increase the seriousness of the crime and the severity of the punishment in the event of convictions. Factors that can lead you to being charged with a more serious sex crime, include the age of the alleged victim, whether you had some position of authority, influence, or power over the victim, whether the victim was incapable of consent (due to age, intoxication or mental incapacity), or whether you possessed or used a weapon during the crime.
