Accused of Contacting a Minor

Contacting a Minor in California

Let Our Ventura Criminal Defense Attorney Fight for You

In California, it is a crime to contact or communicate with a minor – knowing that the individual is a minor child – with the intent to commit a serious felony. It is imperative to understand that a person can be convicted of “contacting a minor with intent to commit a felony” despite never actually doing anything illegal with the minor.

The underlying felonies include:

  • Rape
  • Forcible penetration with a foreign object
  • Lewd acts with a child under 14
  • Oral copulation with a minor
  • Kidnapping
  • Child pornography

Wilfert Law, P.C. is determined to ensure that your rights and future are protected. With more than 10 years of experience, our Ventura criminal defense lawyer has a comprehensive understanding of state law to either get your charges reduced or your case dismissed altogether.

Penalties for Contact a Minor with Intent to Commit a Felony

The penalty for contacting a minor with intent to commit a felony is the same as the potential penalty for the underlying offense you are alleged to have intended. The potential penalties include a lengthy prison sentence and a fine of up to $10,000. Additionally, a conviction for contacting or communicating with a minor with intent to commit a felony will require you to register for California’s Sex Offender Registration Act.
