What Is The Legal Definition Of a Sex Crime in New York?

New York Sex Offender Registry
The Federal 1994 Omnibus Crime Bill (also known as the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act) requires every state to create a program for registering sex offenders and to execute the construction of a sex offender and crimes against children registry. As a result, being found guilty of even a minor sex crime will have lifelong consequences.
The duration for which convicted sex offenders must register as such depends on the nature of their convictions but can range from 20 years to life. Failure to register as a sex offender and violation of sex offender registration statutes are also considered criminal offenses.
Being on the registry of sex offenders will alter the course of your life, whether or not you serve a lengthy prison sentence. Having your name on an accessible list of sex offenders is likely to affect future relationships, potential employment, and even where you are permitted to live.
