Sexual Abuse or Harassment in New York State
Sexual abuse charges and sexual harassment charges must be taken very seriously. Many people who are represented by government attorneys may wind up convicted of these offenses and wind up on the Sex Registry for anywhere from 20 years to life. Not only is your picture publicly displayed for anyone to see, but depending on which of the three levels of the sexual registry that you are placed upon, this can greatly impede upon your life as you may not live within 1,000 feet of a school, playground, licensed daycare facility or many other places. Many very young people come to me that are on these registries and have simply demonstrated that on Long Island there is virtually no place to find affordable housing which does not violate one of these conditions. These charges should be taken very, very seriously. They carry a lifetime of problems if convicted and in many cases, if a competent attorney is hired he or she can address them. Many of these cases arise from disgruntled significant others, false allegations, excessive allegations and simply mean spirited claims because they are not happy with the person that these allegations are alleged against. The sentences for these crimes can not only be excessive in state prison but additionally can be punished with civil confinement after prison which has been ruled constitutional and although you may receive a prison sentence and serve your time that does not mean that you can get out of your imprisonment. They can put you in a civil confinement facility and keep you there. These crimes must be handled with the utmost diplomacy, delicacy, and tact. However, a strong and competent defense must be imposed to protect your rights and interests throughout such proceedings. Come in for your free consultation with Mr. Young and understand and protect your rights.
Consultations are free and you have nothing to lose by making an appointment and coming in and speaking with Mr. Young or a member of his very qualified staff on a matter of this type.
