Rape

Rape is a Serious Crime with Devastating Repercussions, if Convicted

In the state of New York, rape is considered a very serious sex crime that can carry severe punishment for those that wind up being convicted.  There are several ways that this type form of sexual assault can be carried out such as:

  • Using force or the threat of violence against the victim or someone they care about.
  • Using drugs to incapacitate the victim so they don't know what is happening and are unable to resist.
  • Taking advantage of an intoxicated victim.
  • If the victim is a minor and unable to legally consent to a sexual act.

If you or someone you know is facing charges, or is under investigation for rape, an experienced Brooklyn criminal defense attorney will be needed to help defend you against the allegations.  A conviction can lead to devastating consequences like incarceration, hefty fines, a negative impact on your legal record and a lifetime of having to register as a sex offender.  Having a misdemeanor or felony alone can make it incredibly difficult to find and keep a job, as well as limit your housing options, but being a sex offender as well creates a social stigma that will follow you everywhere you go.
