What Are the Penalties of a Sex Crime?
The penalties for sex crimes in Idaho vary depending on circumstances and what type of charge you are given, but with the sensitive nature of these charges prosecutors will often push for the highest possible penalties. You could be facing a felony charge, subjected to mandatory minimum sentencing or life in prison, spending years of your life away from your family. If convicted, you will be subject to a psychosexual evaluation. Sex crime allegations alone can throw a wrench into your day-to-day life, tarnishing your reputation in your community and risking your employment or possible employment opportunities. These are some of the most daunting penalties and you shouldn’t wait to contact an experienced attorney to guide you through the stressful process and fight to get you the best outcome possible.
Will I Need to Register as a Sex Offender?
If you are convicted of a sex crime, regardless of if it is a misdemeanor or felony, you will be required to register as a sex offender. Idaho law requires you to register your home address annually for the rest of your life. The sex offender registry is public and searchable, sacrificing your right to privacy and comfort in your own home. If you live near a school, you could be forced to sell your home and move. Registration is for life, and you can only apply to be removed from the registry after ten years. This application process is rigorous and time-consuming. For more information, you can take a look at Idaho Code § 18-8310.
