Sexual Assault (2C:14-2(b) and 2C:14-2(c)) is a serious offense in New Jersey, graded as a Second Degree Crime, comparable to a significant felony in other states.
Penalties for conviction include prison sentences of five to ten years, of which you’re required to serve 85%, fines and restitution that can easily climb into the tens of thousands of dollars, a lifetime as a registered sex offender on New Jersey’s Megan’s Law Registry, Community Supervision, and more.
Finding work, housing, and the help that most people are eligible for when they fall on hard times is extremely difficult when you have a felony record.
Your life will be changed in ways big and small just from the allegation of Sexual Assault, but a conviction means you’ll simply never live the life you expected to.
