While there are a wide range of sexual assault offenses that can result in punishments of varying magnitudes, there are two primary, very serious consequences that can result from a sexual assault conviction.
The first major consequence is the penalty itself. Because of the serious nature of the offense, the penalties are usually severe and include prolonged incarceration.
The second major consequence is the damage that a sexual assault conviction has on one’s reputation. Convicted sex offenders of all types find their names, addresses and other private information on public registers usually accessible on the Internet by neighbors, prospective employers and the media. As a result, many find it next to impossible to find a job, and more and more towns and cities seek to ban them from living in all or most of the community.
Also troubling is the effect that merely being accused of a sexual assault has on defendants. Allegations of sexual assault frequently involve no physical evidence and no witnesses other than the accused and the accuser. Such cases are often no more than a swearing contest between the parties. Yet rather than enjoying the protection of the presumption of innocence, the accused is often presumed guilty by the media and jurors called upon to decide his or her fate.
