New York Sex Crime Attorney
Sex Crimes & Immigration Status in NY
Any type of criminal charge can be difficult to confront if you are a U.S.
citizen, but if you are an immigrant living in this country, being convicted
of a sex crime could lead to
criminal deportation or denial of US Citizenship. Most sex crimes are considered crimes of
moral turpitude, and a guilty sentence, or in some cases the charge alone, can deny you
the possibility of proving that you are a person of good moral character
when you apply for citizenship.
In New York, sex crimes are tried vigorously in court, and they carry a
heavy social stigma. Law enforcement officials statewide are cracking
down hard on these offenses, which include:
- Indecent exposure
- Child molestation
- Sexual assault
- Child pornography
- Internet sex crimes
If you have been accused of a sex crime, it could not only lead to severe
legal penalties, including imprisonment, but it could also ruin your reputation.
Even if your conviction doesn't result in deportation, if you are
found guilty you likely be required by law to register as a sex offender
- which means giving local police stations your name, photo, address and
being added to an online database that is available to the general public.
