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:

  • Rape
  • 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. You need an aggressive New York immigration attorney on your side to assist with the reduction and removal of criminal charges.
