Have you been charged with a sex crime in New York? The consequences of a sex-based crime conviction are severe and can include registry on a sex offender list, jail time, and steep fines. You do not want to take a sex-based crime charge lightly. Our experienced criminal defense attorneys at Nass, Roper, & Levin, PC. will effectively defend you throughout the entire criminal law process.

- Sexual Assault

If you are convicted of a sex-based crime in New York, the state could place you on the New York State Sex Offender Registry. If you are convicted, a judge will assign you to a risk category at your sentencing hearing and duration of time for which you must remain on the list.
- Risk Level 1 is for those with low risk of re-offense.
- Risk Level 2 is for those with a medium risk of re-offense.
- Risk Level 3 is for those with a high risk of re-offense.
If a judge assigns you a level 2 or level 3 rating, New York will include you in its online sex offender registry. The higher your assigned risk level, the more information the community will know about your sex crime conviction, and the longer you will be on the list. If you do not comply with the ongoing requirements of being on New York’s sex offender list, the state will charge you with a felony.
If you are placed on New York’s Sex Offender List by the Division of Criminal Justice Services, the consequences can be numerous. From losing job prospects to rejection of your housing applications, placement on this list will hinder the way you live your everyday life. For example, some employers now ask whether or not you have had a criminal charge or conviction that a court later expunged in job interviews. Some employers directly ask if you have been convicted of a sex-based crime.
A Skilled Attorney Will Help You Throughout the Entire Criminal Defense Process
Did you know that when you are arrested, you are not required to speak to the police? Officers from the New York Police Department’s special victims units are known to be extremely aggressive when interrogating those they arrest. You are not legally required to speak. Speaking to New York City Police officers without consulting an attorney first could make your legal situation worse.
