Protecting Clients In Sexual Assault Defense Matters

New York state law that governs sex crimes sets out specific requirements that must be met by prosecutors when building a case. The main requirement is the situation lacked consent; the sexual contact was not permitted by the victim but allegedly occurred anyway. This can be a point of contention that can be raised by an experienced sexual assault defense lawyer.

Sexual Assault Cases

In many cases when the term sexual assault is used, it is in reference to a rape. However, sexual assault can constitute any unwanted touching or physical, sexual contact when the victim claims to have said no.

While many sexual assault cases are felonies, some may be charged as misdemeanors. It is essential to talk with your attorney about your specific case to fully understand the type of punishments you are facing if convicted on the charges filed against you.

Registering As A Sex Offender

While jail time is a serious consequence that will drastically impact your life, another consequence of a sex crime conviction can have just as serious an impact: mandatory sex offender registration. If you are convicted of a sex crime, one of the consequences is that you may be required to register as a sex offender. This designation restricts where you can live, where you can work, how much contact you can have with minors and other restrictions. Also, the sex offender registry is searchable by anyone, including neighbors, employers and family members.
