Charged With a Sex Crime in Brooklyn? How an Experienced Lawyer Can Help

Hey folks, Todd Spodek here to talk about the sensitive topic of sex crime allegations in Brooklyn. I know these charges turn your life upside down. The stigma, shame, and possible prison time feel suffocating. But don’t lose hope. With an aggressive defense strategy, many sex crime cases can be won or pleaded down to less serious charges. Keep reading to understand your options and next steps.

Common Brooklyn Sex Crime Charges

Under New York law, sex crimes encompass a wide range of charges. Some examples we frequently defend clients against include:

– Rape – Forcible sexual intercourse without consent
– Criminal sexual act – Oral or anal sex without consent
– Sexual abuse – Unwanted sexual touching of intimate areas
– Sexual misconduct – Generally public lewdness
– Forcible touching – Non-consensual inappropriate touching or groping
– Sexual assault – Umbrella charge covering various forced encounter

There are also many sex offenses related to interactions with minors:

– Statutory rape – Consensual intercourse with a minor
– Endangering welfare of a child – Sexual contact with minor
– Promoting sexual performance of a minor
– Possessing child pornography

As you can see, a broad spectrum of behaviors can lead to a sex crime charge, even if the encounter felt consensual at the time. An experienced attorney is key to raising effective defenses.

Penalties and Sentences For Sex Crimes

Potential consequences for conviction of a sex offense include:

– Years or decades in prison
– Lifetime registration as a sex offender
– Probation and parole
– Sex offender counseling/treatment
– Restraining orders keeping you away from witnesses
– Large fines and court fees
– Destruction of reputation, relationships, career

Some charges like statutory rape may only be misdemeanors with light penalties. But if violence or children are involved, prosecutors push hard for felony convictions and stiff punishment. Just being accused leads to devastating personal costs as well. That’s why strong legal defense is so crucial from day one.

Crafting a Defense Strategy in Sex Crime Cases

Too often, lawyers take a cookie cutter approach to defending these complex cases. But I dive deep into every angle of the allegations, including:

– **Consent** – I review communication history, conduct extensive interviews about past flirting, hookups, or relationship with accuser to show welcoming context for the encounter.

– **Mental health** – Many accusers have issues like borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, PTSD, or chronic lying that cast doubt on their stories. Obtaining medical records is key.

– **Motive** – We look closely for grudges, extortion attempts, custody disputes, or other ulterior motives that may have led to a false report being made. Hell hath no fury like someone scorned!

– **Substance abuse** – Being intoxicated impacts memory, perception, and consent. We document blood alcohol levels and blackout conditions.

– **Veracity** – Police often do sloppy, biased interviewing of accusers. We scrutinize statements for inconsistencies and provably false claims undermining credibility.

– **Digital evidence** – Texts, emails, dating app messages, social media posts often demonstrate flirting and interest, contradicting assault claims.

As former prosecutors, my team knows how to leverage these angles to undermine the DA’s case. For example, with date rape allegations, we’ve won acquittals by showing a history of flirtatious texts discussing sex acts. This proved Welcoming context for the encounter in question.

For child sex abuse claims, we dig into mental health history and prior false allegations. One of our clients had charges dismissed after showing the minor accuser was later hospitalized for delusional claims against teachers and family. Their credibility was destroyed.

We never stop fighting and have achieved many outright dismissals and acquittals. Where charges can’t be beat entirely, we negotiate plea deals to non-sex offenses like simple assault to avoid sex offender registration. There are ALWAYS options in skilled hands.

FAQs About Sex Crime Cases

We normally get asked:

Will I have to register as a sex offender if convicted? Not always, but for many charges, yes. Certain pleas allow us to avoid registration requirements.

Can I be convicted without DNA evidence? Absolutely. Many cases come down to he said/she said. Witness credibility often determines the outcome.

What if I’m innocent but too scared to go trial? We NEVER advise clients to plead guilty. If trial seems risky, we identify plea deals to low level, non-sex charges.

Should I speak to police if they contact me? Never! Assert your right to remain silent and call us immediately. Anything you say can doom your case.

Don’t wait to seek expert counsel. Sex crime charges threaten everything you hold dear in life. Fight back with experienced legal firepower. Call 24/7 or visit online to engage my firm. You deserve a second chance!
