Categories and Penalties of Sexual Crimes
While there are various types of sex crimes, they can be grouped into three
- Sexual Battery or Rape
- Lewd or Lascivious Acts
- Unlawful Sex with Minors
Lewd or lascivious acts are types of sex crimes committed on an individual
who is younger than 16 years of age. Types of lewd and lascivious sex
crimes are battery, molestation, conduction, and exhibition. Sexual battery
or rape is when non-consensual sexual activity occurs due to force, coercion,
or incapacitation. Unlawful sexual activity with minors is when a person
24 years of age or older has consensual sex with a 16 or 17 year old minor.
Prostitution and solicitation are also sex offenses. Prostitution is defined
as a person offering to sell sex or sexual relations to another person
for money. Solicitation is when a person approaches another individual
and offers to purchase sex or sexual relations with money.
