Other Sex Crimes
There are scores of separate and distinct sex crimes in New York. Each offense has varying degrees of severity, involves separate elements of intent and action, and has its own set of consequences and punishments. One thing all sex crimes have in common, however, is the possibility of a lengthy prison sentence, registration as a sex offender upon conviction, and a stigma that will follow you for the rest of your life.
Crimes such as rape, sexual assault, and sex crimes against children are the most serious and most aggressively prosecuted sex offenses in New York, but they are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the lengthy list of potential New York sex crimes.
The primary aspect of the many distinct crimes which fall under the category of New York sex offenses is a lack of consent to sexual contact. This includes unwanted sexual contact with an individual who has explicitly or implicitly denied consent, or someone who is legally incapable of giving consent by virtue of his/her age, mental disability or incapacitation, or who is physically helpless.
At Epstein & Conroy, our experienced and tenacious sex crimes defense attorneys protect the rights of those accused of every type of New York sex offense. In addition to fighting rape, sexual assault, and child sex crimes charges, we defend clients facing sex charges such as:
- Criminal sexual acts: non-consensual oral or anal sexual conduct
- Forcible touching: forcibly touching the sexual or other intimate parts of another person for the purpose of degrading or abusing such person, or for the purpose of gratifying sexual desire
- Sexual abuse: non-consensual or forced sexual contact
- Aggravated sexual abuse
- Patronizing a prostitute or promoting or compelling prostitution
- Sex trafficking
- Unlawful imprisonment
As noted, a sex offense conviction in New York can destroy your life. The loss of freedom for months, years, or even decades is compounded by the requirement to register as a sex offender. This stigma comes with burdensome registration requirements, and can restrict where you are able to live, limit your job opportunities, and make it publicly known that you have been convicted of a New York sex crime. Given the consequences of a sex crime conviction, it is imperative that you contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible if you have been arrested or charged with a sex offense.
