Sex Crimes in Georgia

Many sexually-related offenses are prohibited by Georgia law. These laws can be confusing and difficult to understand by the average person. Furthermore, trying to navigate the criminal justice system with its many statutes, procedures, and specialized language is not recommended. And, when it comes to sex crime charges, the potential penalties are too severe for you to be without the protection and advocacy of a proven trial lawyer.

Examples of Georgia sex crimes include (but are not limited to):

  • Child molestation and aggravated child molestation

  • Sexual battery and aggravated sexual battery

  • Enticing a child for indecent purposes

  • Prostitution

  • Pandering

  • Public indecency

  • Rape

  • Statutory rape

  • Sexual assault by those with a supervisory or disciplinary authority

  • Child pornography possession, distribution, or manufacture

  • Online solicitation

  • Sodomy and aggravated sodomy

  • Failure to register as a sex offender

Under Georgia law, rape occurs when sexual intercourse is committed against another through force and against the will of the alleged victim. It is also rape when the victim is a child under the age of 10, when the victim is unconscious, intoxicated, or in a condition in which consent is not possible. Rape carries penalties of up to 25 years to life in prison. Sexual battery involves making contact with the intimate body parts of another without that person’s permission and is considered aggravated when it involves penetration with a foreign object. Aggravated sexual battery also carries up to 25 years in prison. Both rape and aggravated sexual battery will result in mandatory sex offender registration.

Sexual assault by person with a supervisory or disciplinary authority involves teachers, school administrators, psychotherapists, coaches, probation officers, hospital workers, and others who have control over and make some type of sexual contact with a victim. This type of offense is charged as a felony carrying one up to 20 years in prison.
