Rockland County Sex Crimes Attorney
Sex Crimes Attorney Serving Rockland County, NYC and Hudson Valley
Sex Crimes, or crimes that involve illegal acts of a sexual nature, are some of the most serious types of criminal charges an individual can face and carry exceptionally heavy penalties. The mere accusation of a sex crime may be enough to ruin a person's reputation and threaten both their work and personal lives, regardless of whether or not they are actually guilty.
As laid out by the New York Penal Law, sex crimes or sex offenses are those sexual acts committed without consent of the victim. Whether the victim was forced to comply, had an incapacity to consent (meaning the victim was under 17, mental disabled, mentally incapacitated, physically helpless, committed to a state hospital, in the care and custody of a correctional facility, or committed to or placed with Children and Family Services) or did not expressly consent to sexual advances or acts, sex crimes charges can be filed. A health care provider or mental health care provider who commits any type of sexual conduct, sexual abuse, aggravated sexual abuse or rape in the third degree on a client or patient would also be facing sex crimes charges.

The Life-Changing Consequences in Sex Crime Convictions
When an individual is convicted of sex crimes they are facing life-changing consequences above and beyond prison time. Sex crimes are very serious offenses and those convicted of sex crimes are required by law to register as a sex offender upon completion of their prison or jail sentence. An individual convicted of sex crimes will also have their name, photograph and address, including information on the nature of their conviction available for viewing by the general public. Professional licenses, employment options, as well as housing and financial options will all be impacted.
