New York Sex Crime Attorney
A sex crime is any crime related to sexual activity. Some sex crimes are violent crimes that include sex. Others are violations of social norms, such as incest, sodomy, indecent exposure, or exhibitionism. States differ in defining sex crimes and specifying the appropriate punishment for those crimes. If you are convicted of a sex crime in New York State, you are considered a sex offender and you are required to register with New York State as a sex offender.
Sex crimes are considered crimes of moral turpitude and carry a risk of deportation for non U.S. citizens, if convicted.
