Child molestation is defined as any kind of sexual activity between an adult and a minor, though lesser charges such as unlawful sexual intercourse may also fall under this umbrella term. In the state of California, anyone under the age of 18 is considered a minor. However, for cases of non-forcible sexual intercourse between an adult and a minor, the charges are directly dependent on the age difference between the defendant and the alleged victim. If you have been charged with unlawful sexual activity with a minor, these laws could affect you. The sexual assault attorneys from our law office can review your case free of charge and determine the best defense for the charges against you.
