Rape & Sexual Assault

Rape & Sexual Assault in New YorkPut Your Future in Good Hands

If you have been charged with rape or sexual assault, you will need to hire an experienced New York sex crime 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.
