New York Sex Crimes Lawyers
Rape, or sexual assault, can be a bit too general as the law has many different forms. The attorneys at Pappalardo & Pappalardo possess an in-depth understanding of rape laws and are adept at applying this knowledge to every case we handle. Our knowledge includes:
- Statutory Rape
- Consent and Age of Consent Issues
- Sexual Abuse or molestation allegations
- Domestic Violence
- Sexual Misconduct
- Date Rape and Spousal Rape Accusation
There many different types of defenses that can be used in New York to aid someone that is facing a criminal charge. It all depends on the charge. For example, in a Date Rape or Sodomy case, it is not enough for the District Attorney to prove that sexual relations occurred but the District Attorney must also prove that the defendant didn’t have the consent of the alleged victim. Many times the alleged victim of the Date Rape or Sodomy has remorse after the consensual sexual relations and chooses to retaliate and falsely accuse their consensual partner.
Remember, in New York State, as well as in Federal Court, the burden of proof is on the District Attorney or the United States Attorney to prove the lack of consent by the alleged victim. If the Criminal Defense Lawyer raises reasonable doubt, you cannot be convicted of the sex crimes that you have been charged.
