Potential Penalties for Sex Crime Conviction

New York state prosecutors pursue conviction in sex crime cases very aggressively. If the offense is severe enough, it may qualify as a federal crime. The most commonly prosecuted sex crimes in New York include rape, sexual assault, and sexual crimes involving minor children. The level of punishment for conviction typically depends on several factors, including the ages of the offender and the victim, whether violence or coercion was used, and whether the victim was intoxicated, unresponsive, or handicapped. Additionally, if a sex crime was violent in any way that results in physical injury, maiming, or a permanent medical complication for the victim, this factor will also heavily influence sentencing.Conviction of a sex crime in New York can entail severe penalties, including imprisonment for several years, substantial fines, and permanent registration on a sex offender list. Sex offender registration may last for many years, or it may be permanent. If you are a registered sex offender, your sex offender status can prevent you from living in certain areas, working in different areas of employment, and entail severe social consequences.If you have been wrongfully accused of a sex crime, or if there are mitigating factors that you believe demand attention as your case unfolds, it is essential to seek legal counsel from an experienced Brooklyn sex crimes defense lawyer immediately after your arrest. Remember that once the police arrest you and read you your Miranda rights, anything you say can be used against you by the prosecution. Even if you feel compelled to explain yourself or claim innocence, it is always best to say nothing until you speak with a defense attorney.

Possible Defenses Against Sex Crime Charges

When you are accused of a sex crime it may feel like a hopeless situation at first. Unfortunately, many sex crime cases stem from false accusations, but the police have a duty to believe victims and investigate an alleged sex crime to the fullest extent possible. It’s possible that you engaged in consensual sexual activity and then your partner accused you of sexual assault or a similar offense. It’s also possible that you engaged in consensual sexual activity with someone under the age of consent because you were unaware of their actual age. Entrapment is unfortunately also possible when police are too aggressive with prostitution and sex trafficking stings.

Your Brooklyn sex crimes defense lawyer will closely examine the charges against you, the circumstances of your arrest, and the evidence in play to determine your best available defenses. Unfortunately, some sex crime cases can boil down to the accuser’s word against the defendant’s with little to no physical evidence supporting either’s case. When you face a seemingly hopeless criminal case involving sex crimes, it is vital to have reliable defense counsel on your side who can help you exhaust every available defense.

What to Expect from Your Brooklyn Sexual Assault Attorney

If physical evidence is minimal and it’s your word against your accuser’s, our team will do everything we can to bolster your credibility before a jury, including gathering character references and witness testimony that supports your case.

Depending on the nature of the charge you face, securing a “not guilty” verdict or case dismissal may require proving that you did not commit the offense in question, that you engaged in some inappropriate behavior that does not meet the definition of the charge against you, or that the accusation against you in foundationally untrue.
