California Penal Code Section 288 states a lewd act against a minor happens when someone touches any part of the body of a minor or forces the minor to touch him or herself or the person for the purposes of sexually arousing or gratifying his or herself or the victim. If you are convicted of child molestation, you could face misdemeanor or felony charges depending on how you are charged. Regarding felony child molestation charges, to be charged for conducting a lewd act with a minor comes with serious penalties including huge fines and up to eight years in jail if the minor was under the age of 14. If the minor is forced to perform lewd acts out of fear or if they were threatened, the guilty party could face up to 10 years in state prison and pay huge fines. The older the guilty party is in comparison to the victim, such as being 10 years older than the victim, the more serious the consequences can be.
