Sexual Assault Charges in New York

In New York, sexual assault or sexual abuse encompasses a variety of offenses involving unwanted sexual contact. As it is a sex crime, sexual assault is particularly serious for a defendant due to lifetime sex offender registration requirements, not to mention the harsh terms of imprisonment and fines that may be imposed upon a conviction. Your only choice, if you want to have the best opportunity of avoiding formal charges and a conviction, is to involve a criminal defense attorney.

In addition to rape, sexual assault may include many other forms of sexual misconduct. This may include various offenses, including:

  • Criminal sexual acts
  • Forcible touching
  • Sexual abuse
  • Aggravated sexual abuse
  • Course of sexual conduct against a child
  • Female genital mutilation
  • Facilitating a sex offense with a controlled substance

The key element in each offense is the subjection of another individual to sexual contact without his or her consent. Under the law, lack of consent may involve forcible compulsion, the victim’s incapacity to consent, or any circumstance in which a victim does not expressly or implicitly consent to sexual contact. Forcible compulsion includes either the use of physical force or the threat of immediate death, physical injury or kidnapping. Moreover, individuals who are under the age of 17, mentally disabled, mentally incapacitated, or physically helpless are considered incapable of giving consent.

Building a Clear & Persuasive Case in the Face of Sexual Assault Charges

The very nature of a sexual assault charge can influence a jury, entice an ambitious prosecutor to press charges, or drive law enforcement personnel to make every effort to build sufficient evidence against you. You need someone fighting in your corner to protect your rights and interests. That is what the New York sexual assault defense attorneys at Barket Epstein are here to do—and we have the wherewithal and knowledge to succeed.
