Illegal Sexual Behavior
Without exhaustively listing every statute and law, it is generally illegal to engage in any of the following actions:
- Touch or penetrate anyone in a sexual manner without their consent
- Engage in sexual activity with a minor
- Intimidate or coerce someone into performing sex acts
- Photograph or record someone in a sexual manner without their consent
- Distribute sexual materials of someone without their consent or if they are a minor
- Perform or solicit sex acts for money
Sex Offender Registry
If you are convicted of a sex crime, you will most likely be required to register as a sex offender. This can negatively impact your life in major ways for years to come or even the rest of your life. You will be barred from many professions and public spaces where children may be present. You will have diminished housing opportunities and will likely face societal stigma.
