Our world is saturated with sex, porn and nudity. These things have become so common in our everyday lives that sometimes the lines are blurred as to what is right and what is wrong. This is what makes sex crimes so common. However, there are still laws when it comes to sex, and people need to set limits so they don't face punishment and ruin their reputations. One Wisconsin man could face centuries in jail after pleading guilty to 27 out of a whopping 62 sex crimes.
The charges include 16 counts of sexual assault. The other 11 crimes involve taking nude photos of his victims. The charges also include taking photographs and videos of eight women while they were unconscious. Of those women, six were the man's co-workers.
The acts that the man did with one person - a 17-year-old girl he met in October 2012 - represented nine charges, including five counts of assault and four counts of photographing sexual images. The second highest number of charges involved a former co-worker. The man pleaded guilty to five charges of sexual assault and one count of photographing her without consent. The other charges have been dismissed through a plea deal, but the judge can consider them when making a decision on the 29-year-old man's sentencing and punishment. The man could face a prison sentence of up to 400 years. He faces sentencing on March 14.
Many people have been falsely accused of sex crimes. However, with so much evidence against the man - plus the fact that he pleaded guilty to many of the crimes - getting a lenient sentence may not be in the cards. There are many defenses to sex crimes, though, and perhaps the man's lawyer can provide the court with reasons why the man's sentencing should be lenient.
