New York City Sex Crime Defense Lawyer

Defense Against Sex Crime Allegations in Queens

Sex offenses include any form of sexual act that federal and/or state law prohibits. These often involve the concept of consent (which must be between two legal adults), whereby the sexual conduct was unwelcome, unwanted, and nonconsensual. This can take the form of rape, sexual abuse, sex with a minor or child pornography. While crimes of this nature can vary in severity and intent, they all can severely impact the life of the accused.

The serious nature of a sex crime requires equally serious legal attention from a skilled criminal defense lawyer. If you have been arrested or informally accused of a sex offense of any kind, involving a legal professional may be the right step in protecting yourself.

The Queens sex crime attorneys at the firm have 100 years of combined experience and are committed to fighting for defendants' rights. Call (888) 502-8461 today for an appointment!

Sex Crime Information & Insight

When it comes to a sex offense, accusations alone have the power to ruin a person's reputation, personal relationships and even livelihood. Formal criminal charges can be disastrous, lending a sense of validity to the alleged victim's claims and even attracting the attention of the media. A defendant may face imprisonment, fines and lifetime registration as a sex offender if convicted.

If convicted, one could face any number of consequences. Courts may order sex offender registration, one of the most serious penalties imposed upon defendants convicted of sex crimes. Sex offender registration can affect every aspect of one's life. Registered sex offenders may not be able to live or work within a certain distance of playgrounds, schools or other properties and may not even be able to come near these places. They must also register with law enforcement on a regular basis and can be found in national registries.

Penalties for Sex Crimes in Queens

The penalties for a sex crime will vary depending on the nature of the offense and a number of other factors, such as the age of the accused versus the age of the victim and whether the defendant has been convicted of a sex crime in the past.

Under New York State Penal Code Article 130, sex offenses may be classified as misdemeanors or felonies, with penalties ranging from a short term in county jail to life in prison. Alleged sex crimes against minors and children or that involve physical violence are likely to incur the harshest penalties.

Some sex crimes are also categorized as federal crimes, typically if state lines or national borders are crossed or offenses are committed in multiple states. Child pornography is one example of a sex crime that may be investigated and prosecuted by federal agencies and personnel. When charged as federal crimes, sex offenses are likely to carry increased penalties and prison terms.
