Categories and Penalties of Sexual Crimes

While there are various types of sex crimes, they can be grouped into three main categories:

  • 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.
