Lifelong consequences for juveniles placed on sex offender list

Hosted by

People convicted of a sex crime in California face some of the most restrictive sex offender laws in the country. Offenders convicted of a sex crime against a minor are placed on a sex offender registry for life, and the consequences for those who make the list are dire. Less well known, however, is that juveniles can also end up on the registry for “playing doctor,” for sexting, or for engaging in consensual sex.
