Criminal Lawyer Charlotte North Carolina
The laws in North Carolina have classified the different types of sex crimes and the minimum and maximum sentences that perpetrators can be given if found guilty.
One of these crimes is rape which can be first-degree forcible rape, second-degree forcible rape or first-degree statutory rape. These different rape crimes are classified according to the circumstances of the rape like the age of the victim, whether weapons were used, whether the victim has a mental or physical disability, whether serious bodily injury was inflicted on the victim among other factors.
Another kind of sex crime is indecent liberties with a child. It is considered a crime to engage in sexual acts if one is 16 years old or above and five years older than the child. Sex with a child aged below 16 years old is considered a crime. This can be by willfully committing or attempting to commit any indecent, improper or immoral acts with a male or female child in order to arouse or gratify sexual desire. Committing lewd or lascivious acts on a child’s body for the same purposes is also considered a sexual crime.
Child pornography is another kind of sex crime. Internet sex crimes where sexual acts or sexually suggestive acts are recorded, photographed, developed, filmed or duplicated for publication on the internet is also not allowed in the state. If children are involved, the crime is classified as First or Second-Degree Sexual Exploitation of a Minor.
