An Attorney That Can Handle Any Aspect Of Sex Crimes
New York law requires a person convicted of a sex offense to register as a sex offender with the Division of Criminal Justice Services. This includes individuals who plead guilty as part of a plea bargain. New York law lists almost 50 separate criminal offenses that require registration upon conviction.
Some of the most common sex crimes that result in mandatory sex offender registration include:
- Child pornography
- Date rape
- Endangering the welfare of a child
- Internet pornography
- Internet sex crimes
- Internet sting operations
- Rape charges
- Statutory rape
- SORA issues
- Sexual abuse
- Aggravated sexual abuse
- Sex trafficking
- Unlawful imprisonment
Additionally, individuals currently residing in New York state who were convicted in another jurisdiction must register under SORA if they were convicted of an offense equivalent to a New York state registerable sex offense, they were convicted of a felony requiring registration in the conviction jurisdiction, or they were convicted of certain sex offenses under federal law.
Sex Offender Registration
In many ways, the sentence for a New York sex crime conviction is never-ending, as you will have to register as a sex offender under the state’s Sex Offender Registration Act (SORA). The label of registered sex offender is one that will follow you around for decades and possibly the rest of your life. Sex offender registration can limit where you can work, live and travel, and your conviction and sex offender status may be viewable by anyone with access to the internet.
