Facilitating a Sexual Offense with a Controlled Substance in New York: Understanding the Crime and Its Consequences

Facilitating a sexual offense with a controlled substance is one of the most heinous crimes that you can commit. This crime involves giving someone incapacitating drugs without their consent for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity. Under New York Penal Code § 130.90, this act is considered as facilitating a sexual offense with a controlled substance, which is classified as a serious felony offense.

At Spodek Law Group, we understand how severe this crime is and its consequences. Our experienced attorneys, including Attorney Todd Spodek, have handled numerous cases involving facilitating sexual offenses with controlled substances and are well-equipped to provide you with professional legal representation.

The Crime: What You Need to Know

Imagine meeting someone at a club who offers to buy you drinks. Unbeknownst to you, they slip ecstasy into your drink while you’re not looking. Soon after finishing your drink, you start feeling dizzy and disoriented; before long, they take advantage of your state by taking you back to their apartment where they sexually assault you while unconscious or unable to resist.

This scenario exemplifies what it means when someone facilitates an offense using drugs under New York Penal Code § 130.90 Рwhether legal or illegal Рany preparation mixture or compound requiring prescription qualifies as such an act.

If found guilty of this crime in court proceedings against them (which our team has extensive experience handling), defendants could face lengthy prison sentences among other severe penalties depending on various factors surrounding each case’s circumstances.

Related Offenses

Other related offenses that may be charged alongside facilitating sex offenses include criminal sexual acts in first/second-degree rape charges under NY penal code §220 possession laws regarding drug use during these types of crimes’ commissioning process.

Possible Defenses

One critical issue arising from these cases concerns establishing consent between parties involved- proving that the alleged victim willingly and knowingly took drugs and consented to sexual activity. Even if you can establish that they agreed to take the drug, if they were mentally incapacitated or physically helpless at the time of the sexual act, charges may still be brought against you.

At Spodek Law Group, our attorneys will work tirelessly to mount a solid defense on your behalf. We understand that your future is on the line, and we will explore every possible defense strategy available to get you the best possible outcome for your case.

The Sentence: What You Need To Know

Facilitating a sexual offense with a controlled substance is classified as a class D felony under New York law. This crime carries maximum prison sentences of up to seven years in addition to mandatory minimum sentencing requirements (two years) due to its classification as violent felonies.

It’s important also note that this offense requires registration as sex offenders – meaning defendants must provide personal information such as name/address/workplace/email address/photograph/aliases/social media handles/crime details/victim attributes regularly updated over 20 years’ duration post-conviction release date.
