Sexual battery – sometimes referred to as sexual assault – and other sex crimes carry some of the harshest penalties of any crimes committed in the United States. This is especially true in Georgia, where sentences for a sex crime conviction often result in mandatory 25 years to life prison sentences.
Sexual battery involves threatening, coercing or forcing a person to engage in a sexual act against his or her will, or sexual touching without consent of the person being touched. Rape, inappropriate touching, forced kissing, child sexual abuse and sexual torture may incur sexual battery charges.Georgia Sexual Battery Defense | National Sex Crime Defense Counsels
