Get A Noted New York Sex Crimes Attorney On Your Side When Facing Sexual Misconduct Charges

Sexual misconduct involves taking advantage of a person who is not capable of giving legal consent to a sexual act. This could involve a teacher and a student, a doctor and a patient, or any situation in which one of the parties involved is alleged to lack capacity to consent.

Sexual misconduct charges may arise in conjunction with rape and sexual assault charges. Unlike rape, sexual misconduct is a misdemeanor. But every sex crime charge is serious and can have significant consequences, even if you are not facing extensive prison time.

Contact us to schedule a consultation with our experienced criminal defense lawyers and learn about the potential consequences you are facing and your legal options, including potential plea agreements you may be offered versus contesting all charges. We have offices in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and represent clients throughout NYC, including all boroughs, as well as Long Island and New Jersey.

SORA Classification

Under New York's Sex Offender Registration Act (SORA), convicted sex offenders are classified according to the risk they pose to the community. Risk classification will also reflect how long a convicted individual must register as a sex offender. In some cases, classification as a sex offender will have a greater effect on your future than any potential jail time.

At Summers & Schneider, P.C., we can help you understand the consequences of the charges against you. We can represent you at your hearing when your risk classification is being assessed. We can also help you appeal your classification.
