What are Missouri Sex Crimes?

These offenses include crimes such as the following:

  • Rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Sodomy
  • Statutory sodomy
  • Child molestation
  • Sexual misconduct
  • Promoting sexual solicitation via the internet
  • Enticement of a minor
  • Sexual assault
  • Indecent exposure
  • Prostitution
  • Child pornography

They are charged according to the seriousness of the offense. Factors that are taken into consideration include the quantity of force used against the victim and the victim’s age. Sex crimes committed against children are considered extremely serious.

Those offenses considered the least serious will lead to misdemeanor charges. Other sex offense charges will range from Class D to Class A felonies with Class A being the most serious. An example of a Class A sex crime felony would be first-degree rape causing bodily injury or committed with the use of a weapon or against a child under the age of 12. A conviction is punishable by 10 to 30 years in prison or life imprisonment. Other felony punishments range from four years or less up to 15 years in prison.
