Rape & Sexual Assault in New York
Put Your Future in Good Hands
If you have been charged with rape or sexual assault, you will need to
hire an experienced attorney. These are some of the most serious charges
that a person can face. They are complex and require an attorney to be
schooled in a number of different disciplines, including psychology, forensics,
DNA, medicine and the special legal principles that pertain to rape and
sexual assault cases in New York.
If you are convicted of rape or another type of sexual assault, the results
are often devastating. Long jail sentences, long periods of probation,
parole or supervised release with very burdensome rules, sex offender
registration and even involuntary commitment to a psychiatric hospital
are all real possibilities, if not probabilities. Not to mention, the
consequences of a conviction will likely last your entire life.

These crimes, as they are defined in New York Penal Law § 130, have
specific definitions. Oftentimes, these definitions differ from their
common meaning. For example, rape does not require the use of force. In
fact, rape in the third degree, while very serious, is not even considered
a violent crime in New York.
