Sex Offender Registration Act
The mere allegation of rape or other sex crime can lead to unwanted notoriety and immeasurable damage to your reputation. A conviction to a sex crime will negatively impact the rest of your life. After you have served your sentence, New York’s Sex Offender Registration Act (SORA) will require you to register as a sex offender. This law requires individuals convicted of sexual crimes to register with law enforcement at regular intervals. Failing to comply with these laws can lead to additional criminal charges.
Under SORA, individuals are classified under three levels, based on the perceived risk of re-offending. Level 3 indicates a high level, Level 2 indicates a moderate level of re-offense, and Level 1 is a low level. Level 3 and Level 2 offenders are placed on the New York Sex Offender Registry. If you are listed on the Sex Offender Registry, your address and personal information will be placed online to be viewed by the public.
Clearly, any sex conviction will limit your life in countless ways. If you have been accused of a sex crime, or if you have been charged with violating any aspect of the Sex Offender Registration Act, it is imperative that you enlist the services of an experienced lawyer.
