Understanding Your Charges
In New York, those convicted of child molestation face harsh penalties. The exact penalties you are facing will depend on the nature of your charges but, typically, accused individuals face harsh prison sentences, fines, and mandatory registration on the public sex offender registry.
In most cases, there is a five-year statute of limitations on cases involving the alleged sexual abuse of a child. However, the clock does not begin running until the child’s 18th birthday. As such, an alleged victim has until the age of 23 to come forward, and the state has until that time to file charges. For alleged abusers, this means that charges may be filed many years after the alleged incident took place. Physical evidence is likely negligible. It may come down to witness accounts and testimony from the alleged victim.
In defending clients against child molestation charges, our team carefully analyzes every aspect of the case. Meticulous preparation and a thorough investigation can expose minute or gaping holes in the prosecutor’s case, resulting in dropped charges. Clear, compelling arguments at trial can facilitate an acquittal.
With diverse and considerable experience, our New York sex crimes defense lawyers at Barket Epstein can effectively manage every aspect of your case. This includes handling the media and coaching you on what to do and what to say on a personal and professional basis. Child molestation allegations alone can threaten your career and your future. We are here to mitigate this damage and secure the best possible result in your case.
