New Jersey Criminal Sexual Contact Charges: N.J.S.A. 2C:14-3

Criminal sexual contact is a lesser included offense of sexual assault, which is governed by N.J.S.A. 2C:14-2. If the prosecution is unable to prove all of the elements of aggravated sexual assault or sexual assault, you will probably find yourself facing criminal sexual contact charges.

You can be charged with criminal sexual contact if you commit an act of sexual contact with a victim while using physical force or coercion. If the victim is under the age of 18, you could also find yourself facing criminal sexual contact charges.

Depending upon the circumstances, you could be charged with aggravated criminal sexual contact. This typically happens when the victim is between the ages of 13 and 16. You can also face enhanced charges if the illegal act occurs during the commission of a violent crime or if the victim suffers severe injury.

Fight Criminal Sexual Contact Charges in Paramus, NJ

Criminal sexual contact is classified as a fourth degree felony. This means that a conviction will result in a sentence of up to 18 months in NJ State Prison. It is very important that you avoid a conviction for aggravated criminal sexual contact because the penalties are significantly worse: you could be sentenced to 3–5 years in NJ State Prison.

Additionally, a conviction for criminal sexual contact will give rise to Megan’s Law registration requirements. There is a chance that you could be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. This can include mandatory registration in an Internet database, fliers with your picture being distributed to your neighbors, and notifications being sent to your place of employment. That’s why you need an experienced lawyer who understands the nuances of New Jersey sex crime laws and who can provide a strong defense against your charges.
