Westchester Criminal Sexual Act Defense Attorney

Allegations of a criminal sexual act alone will have a substantial impact upon almost every aspect of your life. Now that you may have been charged with a criminal offense that is very likely to be aggressively pursued by Westchester prosecutors, you will need to do everything you can to avoid the more serious penalties that may be handed down if a conviction is achieved against you.

If you have been accused of committing a criminal sexual act in Westchester, you need to speak with a Westchester criminal sexual act defense attorney to begin developing a legal strategy that will protect your rights and will be capable of challenging the charges that have been brought against you.

Potential Consequences of Criminal Sexual Act Convictions

Criminal sexual acts may be charged in the third, second, or first degree in Westchester, as in the rest of the state. Since allegations of a criminal sexual act in the third degree will be those of an E felony, even the least serious of these charges may potentially result in the following consequences:

  • A maximum of four years in prison
  • Lifetime registration as a sex offender
  • Significant fines

As you might imagine, the potential consequences of more serious charges will be significantly more devastating. Though the charges you are facing are serious, you need to remember that you will still have the opportunity to defend yourself and protect your future.
