Sex Offender Registration

In addition to any punishments that may involve prison sentences or the payment of fines, conviction for many sex crimes may also require you to register as a sex offender. This requirement could have a profound impact on your life that goes beyond even the strict penalties for a felony conviction.

Sex offenders in Binghamton cannot hold many jobs, cannot live in many locations, and must periodically register with the sex offender board.

Misdemeanor Sex Crimes in Binghamton

Sex crimes range from the simple unwanted touching of another all the way to forced sexual intercourse. As a result, the penalties for sex crimes can differ greatly depending on the nature of the alleged act.

For instance, New York Penal Law §130.52 criminalizes the act of Forcible Touching. The statute defines this crime as the nonconsensual groping of another for sexual gratification, but it may alternatively involve sexual touching for the purpose of abusing or degrading another. While still a serious allegation, forcible touching is only a class A misdemeanor, meaning that it is punishable by a maximum of one year in jail.

Felony Sex Crimes

NYPL §130.35 defines Rape in the First Degree as any sexual intercourse that is achieved through the use of force, as well as any sex with a person under the age of eleven, or sex with a person who cannot resist. This is the most serious sex crime that you could face in Binghamton; accordingly, this crime is categorized as a class B felony punishable by a maximum of twenty-five years imprisonment.

Conversely, NYPL §130.50 provides the definition of a Criminal Sexual Act in the First Degree. Such an act is very similar to rape, except the sexual contact does not take the form of penetrative intercourse. However, the law considers this just as serious as rape, so a conviction for first-degree criminal sexual act is also a class B felony.

Both of these crimes have lesser degrees with different criteria for a conviction, but all variants of these crimes are still felonies punishable by more than a year in prison.
