Charged with a sex crime in Nassau County?
There are numerous criminal charges that are considered to be sex crimes in the State of New York. Some of these crimes are violent in nature, like rape and sexual assault, while others are not violent such as soliciting a prostitute, possessing child pornography or being nude in public.
New York takes all of these sex crimes very seriously, and it dedicates considerable law enforcement and judicial resources to prosecuting those who have been accused of committing them. Regardless of which sex crime you have been accused of, government prosecutors will seek to punish you to the fullest extent of the law – which can include jail time, fines, probation, and registering as a sex offender pursuant to Megan’s Law.
Sex crime accusations can have incredibly adverse effects on your life. Aside from the potential jail time and other legal consequences, the stigma that a conviction for such charges carries can sour both your personal and professional relationships. That is why it is so important to obtain legal representation as soon as possible after you have been charged with a sex crime of any kind.
