The biggest problem with committing even a minor sex crime is that you’ll have to register as a sex offender, anyone with internet access can look up convicted sex offenders in the area and if convicted, your photo, along with your information will popup in sex offender directories across the United States. Having to register as a sex offender may cause a person to lose his friends, work peers, or job. This requirement was instituted by Megan’s law, which requires the sexual offender to register and place his home address on the registry for anyone to see.

Statutory rape is a crime that’s committed when an individual who is older than 18 years of age has sex with a male or female who is under the legal age of 18 but is not a child (usually older than 14 years). A person may commit statutory rape even if the other person voluntarily consents to have sex. An individual can be charged with and convicted of statutory rape even if the person he or she had sex with refuses to cooperate with the government.
