Georgia Sex Crimes
Aside from lengthy prison terms and hefty fines, sex crimes can lead to mandatory registration in Georgia’s Sex Offender registry after serving your prison term. This can severely restrict your lifestyle, employment, housing, and more. For example, registered sex offenders are prohibited from living or working within 1,000 feet of schools, playgrounds, childcare facilities, churches, or other locations where children may congregate. Failing to register or violating the rules of registration can result in serious legal consequences.
