New York has strict laws prohibiting sexual contact with children under the age of 11. One such law is Penal Code § 130.75, which makes it a felony to engage in two or more acts of sexual conduct with a child less than 11 years old over a period of time not less than three months in duration. This offense carries some of the most severe penalties under New York law.
Under § 130.75, a person is guilty when they engage in two or more acts of sexual conduct with a child less than 11 years old over a period of at least three months.
Acts of sexual conduct include:
The acts of conduct do not need to be the same each time, just sexual in nature. And the three-month timeframe does not need to be continuous, just add up to at least three months.
This charge is very serious, as it indicates an ongoing pattern of sexual abuse against a very young child. Just a single act can potentially be prosecuted under other statutes related to sex crimes or child endangerment.
Fighting allegations under § 130.75 requires disproving that any sexual conduct took place. Some possible defenses include:
In some cases, an attorney may argue that while inappropriate contact occurred, it did not actually meet the definition of “sexual conduct” under the law. Or they may dispute that the acts spanned three months.
An experienced criminal defense lawyer can carefully examine the accusations to identify any factual errors or lack of evidence to undermine the charges.
A conviction under PC § 130.75 leads to very harsh punishments, including:
In many cases, probation lasts at least 10 years and potentially the remainder of the defendant’s life. The court can also issue orders of protection prohibiting contact with the victim.
Registered sex offenders face many restrictions and stigma. Their photos and addresses are publicly listed, limiting housing and job options. And level three offenders must report in-person every 90 days.
New York has several other statutes related to sexual offenses against children, including:
The potential penalties depend on the child’s age, specific acts, and other circumstances. But all such charges must be taken very seriously.
Allegations of sexual misconduct with a child can completely devastate a person’s life. But attorney Todd Spodek of Spodek Law Group has successfully defended clients against some of the most serious sex crime charges in New York. With over 45 years of experience, he knows how to thoroughly assess the prosecution’s evidence and build the strongest possible defense.
