New York Sex Crime Defense Attorney
Welcome to the Sex Crimes Advocacy homepage, a project of this Law Office. This page is dedicated to assisting people who have been accused of sex offenses. Sex crimes include possession of child pornography, Internet sex crimes and enticement, date rape, statutory rape, sexual assault, sex abuse, and prostitution. If you have been arrested for a sex crime, or have been accused of one, we urge you to read this information carefully and to call us at (212) 685-0999 for an assessment of your particular case.
In today's climate, sex crimes carry a special stigma. A person accused of a sex crime needs an experienced lawyer. Once convicted, a sex offender is marked for life. Conviction of a sex crime can be more serious than any other kind of criminal conviction. Long prison terms are normal, even for simple possession of child pornography. After prison, an offender's name, address and photograph can be posted on the Internet and publicized by the police. A person convicted of a sex offense is limited in the kinds of jobs he can hold and where he can live. Even conviction of a sexual misdemeanor will affect you the rest of your life.
If you are investigated or charged with sex assault, date rape, child pornography, an Internet sex crime, or a crime related to prostitution or people trafficking, it is essential to hire an experienced attorney to protect your rights and, if warranted, take your case to trial. Pleading guilty to a sex crime is often a terrible idea. You need a lawyer on your case as early as possible - ideally, before charges are even brought. But even if you have already been convicted, relief may be available via appeal or a writ of habeas corpus. Please read the information on these pages and contact us to discuss your case.
