Understanding Sodomy Charges in Georgia

Sodomy charges usually involve some element of acts committed by means of force, threat, or intimidation. The consequences of this crime, are not quite as serious as rape charges or other sex crimes involving penetration. Depending on the circumstances, this may include time in jail, restitution, probation, fines, and a sex offender registry. However, there are many factors which can significantly heighten the penalties.

A few of the factors which could heighten the penalties include:

  • The victim was unable to consent due to physical or mental defect
  • The victim was unable to consent due to age
  • The victim was under the age of 12
  • Acts of sodomy which were incestuous
