Possible Penalties of Sexual Abuse Conviction

If you are convicted of third degree sexual abuse charges—the least serious of these charges under state law—almost every aspect of your life will be impacted by the following possible penalties:

  • Lifetime registration as a sex offender
  • Up to 90 days in prison
  • Up to $500 in fines

Under more serious circumstances, sexual assault may be charged as a Class D felony, which will carry a mandatory minimum prison sentence if you are convicted.
