The punishments for a sexual assault conviction depend on the circumstances
of the crime. Assault in the 1st degree is considered a Class B felony, which carries a maximum penalty
of 60 years in jail. Assault in the 2nd degree is a Class C felony, which can lead to up to 40 years in prison
and / or a maximum fine of up to $100,000. Assault in the 3rd degree is a Class G felony that can lead to up to 10 years in prison and

Likely, a sexual assault conviction will also get you on the national sex
offender registry. Being a registered sex offender can affect where you
live, where you work, and how you related to other people. Many sex offenders
are ostracized by their society because the registry is public knowledge.
