What are the consequences of a sex crime conviction in New York?

Sex crimes carry harsh punishments. Anyone convicted of a sex crime may receive a prison sentence and be ordered to pay a fine. The length of the prison sentence will depend on whether the offense was a misdemeanor or felony, how violent it was, if there were prior convictions and other factors.

A sex crime conviction also comes with a criminal record and mandatory sex offender registration. Having a permanent record can impact many areas of a person’s life that require a criminal background check such as applying for employment, getting a loan and renting an apartment.
