One child molestation charge may change your life. Whether the offense is enticing, endangering a kid, sexual assault, or criminal sexual contact, Megan’s Law requires sex offender registration and possible prison time. Unfortunately, these accusations are mostly based on claims without physical proof or other substantiation. This makes it impossible to decide these disputes without a jury deciding who is speaking the truth. Therefore, you need a qualified New Jersey criminal attorney who has tried many child molestation cases. Before handing over your credit card or signing a check, know what you are paying for. You cannot afford a child molestation lawyer without experience.
Five crimes constitute child molestation or sexual abuse:
Aggravated sexual assault is the worst child molestation crime in New Jersey. N.J.S.A. 2C:14-2a describes this infraction. First-degree offense. Sexual penetration under the following conditions constitutes aggravated sexual assault:
The Lunsford Act restricted plea bargaining and punishment for severe assault victims under 13 in New Jersey in 2014. A minimum jail term applies. 25 years to life without parole. The state cannot offer fewer than 15 years in jail to resolve this sort of case via a plea deal. Convictions for aggravated sexual assault of a child trigger Megan’s Law and PSL.
Sexual assault can lead to second-degree child molestation charges. If the actor is at least four years older than the victim and sexually assaults a child under 13, N.J.S.A. 2C:14-2b applies. Sexual penetration in the following conditions constitutes sexual assault:
N.J.S.A. 2C:24-4 defines endangering a child as child molestation. “Engages in sexual conduct that would impair or debauch the child” is this violation.
When the actor breaches this legislation while having a legal duty of care for the kid or taking responsibility for a child, it is a second-degree criminal. When the parties have no obligation or responsibility, it’s a third-degree felony.
Third-degree sexually based child endangerment involves a $15,000 fine and 3-5 years in jail. Second-degree child endangerment can result in 5-10 years in jail and a $150,000 fine. This crime falls under the No Early Release Act. Parole eligibility is 85% of the sentence. Megan’s Law and Parole Supervision for Life apply to either degree of endangerment.
Criminal sexual contact under N.J.S.A. 2C:14-3a is the least serious kind of child sexual abuse. An adult commits this offence if they have “sexual contact” with a minor child under conditions 2–7 of First Degree Aggravated Sexual Assault. Sexual contact with someone under 13 is sexual assault, not aggravated criminal sexual contact.
Third-degree aggravated criminal sexual contact carries 3-5 years in jail and a $15,000 fine. Megan’s Law includes aggravated criminal sexual contact in sex offender registration.
