What Constitutes a Child Sex Offense Crime?
In many child sex offense cases, there must be evidence that the defendant had contact with the minor beforehand. The purpose behind the contact– usually through chat rooms or internet services, these days –needs to be geared towards setting up a face-to-face meeting with intent to engage in a sexual act of any kind. As seen on Dateline, the charges can be placed against the defendant regardless of who was actually on the other end of the agreement; an undercover officer could have been posing and a minor and the charges are just as valid. It is theintent
to commit the illegal sexual conduct that would be the most damaging that scenario.
Just the act of traveling to meet a minor with illicit intent can lead to the following penalties:
Other forms of child sex offenses include:
- Up to 15 years in prison
- High fines
- Restitution to the family
- Registration as a sex offender
