Many different laws in California fall under the umbrella of “sex crimes.” They include felonies and misdemeanors, but every sex crime conviction is serious. Apart from the social stigma of being labeled as a sex offender, many sex crime convictions trigger a sex offender registration requirement.
Rape is among the most serious California sex crime offense. In 2014, about 650 rapes and attempted rapes were reported in Orange County while about 440 were reported in Riverside County. Los Angeles County had the largest number of rapes and attempted rapes (more than 2,200) while San Diego County had more than 700.
Randy Collins understands that reported crimes are not the same as actual crimes. He knows that many accusations of sexual assault are false. Many innocent individuals are accused of sex crimes they did not commit. Only a vigorous defense can save the innocent from the devastating consequences of an unjust sex crime conviction.

Although these are among the most commonly charged sex offense laws in Southern California, this list is not comprehensive. Other sex crimes, as well as variations of the crimes described above, are also defined by California’s Penal Code.
Innocence is always a defense to a sex law violation. False accusations of sex crimes are made for a number of reasons. Some result from spite or jealousy. Others are based in shame (some accusers find it easier to cry rape than to admit to cheating on a spouse or lover). Child sexual assault accusations are often the result of coaxing children to make a false accusation in order to gain an advantage in custody proceedings. Identifying the motive for a false accusation is one key to winning a sex offense trial.
Other defenses, including mistaken identity, misperception of the facts, and lack of intent depend upon the specific crime alleged and the evidence the prosecution will rely upon to prove the crime. Most sex crime defenses begin with undermining that evidence to create reasonable doubt about the guilt of the accused.
