Sex crimes and sex offenses are considered violent crimes in New York State and are pursued vigorously by police and prosecutors.
Section 130 of the New York Penal Code describe the terms of incarceration and fines that are used to punish sex offenses. Numerous crimes have sexual elements, but discussions of sex offenses focus primarily on:
- Indecency with a child
- Sexual assault/Rape
- Aggravated sexual abuse (the term used in scenarios when the victim was age 11 or younger).
- Lack of consent, sexual misconduct, forcible touching, and other actions.
Being charged or accused of a sex crime can be a paralyzing feeling. The best course of action is to remain as calm as possible and contact legal professionals with deep experience handling such serious and life-changing matters.
