  • Having intercourse
  • Not married (spousal rape can be another topic),

SEX WITH A MINOR, CHILD MOLESTATION

Any person 18 years of age or older who engages in sexual intercourse or sodomy with a child who is 10 years of age or younger is guilty of a felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for a term of 25 years to life. If convicted of this crime, you are facing a life sentence in prison.

This crime is closely related to oral copulation with a minor (California Penal Code 288a.) Prosecutors can also press charges under PC § 288.7 if there is evidence of sexual penetration under California Penal Code § 289(l). Prosecution is unlikely to offer a favorable plea if you are being charged of child molestation, which means you may have no choice, but to go to trial.  going to trial means you need an experienced criminal defense lawye  who  knows how to properly cross-examine witnesses and try to either reduce the crime or prove your innocence.

Our law firm will cross examine the child who is accusing you of the crime, which gives our attorney the opportunity to expose any weakness in the child’s testimony and possible favorable evidence to prove your case. Attorney Jason Robert Smith has experience handling these matters and will put this experience to work for you.

If there is express or implied consent by the other party, then there is no crime to be convicted of.  Our skilled sex crime defense attorneys in Los Angeles know how to create doubt in a jury’s mind about the mindset of the defendant if you’ve been accused of a sexual battery crime.
