Legal Ramifications of Child Molestation Charges in West Georgia

Child molestation is a sex crime that has a great deal of negative stigma attached to it. Society values the innocence of their children, and the common consensus is that sex crimes involving minors under the age of 18 should be met with the absolute highest level of prosecution and support by law enforcement.

When an individual commits a sexual act in the presence of a child, or engages the child in such conduct for the purpose of sexual stimulation, then child molestation charges may be levied. Further, the electronic transmission of images of child molestation may also result in arrest. These are extremely serious charges and require the enlistment of an experienced Douglas County criminal defense attorney for any measure of success.

The penalties associated with child molestation convictions in Georgia are quite severe. First-time offenders may face anywhere from 5 to 20 years in prison, and must receive counseling upon release. Additional convictions will result in prison terms ranging from 10 to 30 years, or even life. There are a variety of special conditions relating to age or the physical injury of a child during the act that may either upgrade or downgrade the penalties, and so it is important to fully understand the charges that you face.
