In Nassau, Suffolk and Queens counties being charged with a sex crime can have extremely serious consequences. These types of charges carry a special type of stigma and even the mere allegation can have disastrous consequences. If convicted, a sex offender is marked for life. Sex offenders can be restricted in where they live, where they work, and even whom they can be around. A conviction can lead to years in prison, post release supervision, court fines and state surcharges. The damage done to ones reputation can last the rest of your life. Upon conviction, your name, address and photograph can be publicized. It is important to remember that you have rights and are entitled to be represented by counsel. Hiring an experienced attorney is crucial when you consider the stakes.

Sex Offender Registry

• Level 1 – Low Risk
• Level 2 – Moderate Risk
• Level 3 – High Risk
Additionally, the classification of sexual predator or violent sexual offender can be designated, as can predicate sex offender. See the above line to the NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services for further information.
Federal Sex Offenses
Certain sex offenses are investigated by the FBI or other agencies and prosecuted in federal court, also known as the United States District Courts. In New York City, there are two federal district courts, the Eastern District (covering Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island) and the Southern District (covering Manhattan, the Bronx and northern suburbs like Westchester).
