New York Laws Regarding Sex Crimes

The term “sex crimes” is a general category which covers a wide variety of criminal offenses. These offenses are of a sexual nature, and they generally involve any type of illegal pornography, unlawful sexual behavior, sexual assault, or sexual misconduct. New York State takes these kinds of crimes very seriously, and most are felony offenses. If you are convicted of what is called a ”registerable sex offense,” you will be forced to register publicly on the Sex Offender Registry. Depending on the severity of the charges against you, you may be forced to register for life.

Once you are registered, people will be able to see the following, and more:

  • Your address
  • Your criminal history
  • Your physical appearance

Registerable sex offenses include:

  • Sex crimes against children
  • Patronizing a prostitute
  • Sexual assault
  • Incest
