What Are the Consequences of Being a Convicted Sex Offender in New York?

September 26, 2014 New York Lawyers

Being a convicted sex offender can be devastating for a New York resident. As part of being convicted, a person can face prison time, fines, and other forms of punishment. However, often the worst part of being a convicted sex offender comes after the person is released on parole or probation.

Convicted sex offenders face a lot laws in New York, both state and federal, that will affect their lives for years or even decades. In New York, convicted sex offenders must register as sex offenders. Their addresses, pictures, and the offense are then published on online sex offender registries.

Convicted sex offenders have rules about where they can live, work, or walk. Recently, a convicted sex offender in New York was found to be living within 1,000 feet of a school, which is illegal, and had to be moved. In some communities, it’s almost impossible to find anywhere legally to live. Even if it is possible to find a place to legally live, it can be hard to actually find a landlord willing to rent to you, and next to impossible to find a job as a convicted sex offender.

A large percentage of sex offenders, even if they are guilty of the offense with which they are charged, are non-violent individuals. Their crimes could include juvenile actions, such as having sex with a consenting underage individual of the same age, or sending nude pictures to underage peers. These relatively harmless actions can result in years or even a lifetime of punishment.

Unfortunately, in modern society laws regarding sex offenders have lumped all sex offenders together and have made it almost impossible for a convicted sex offender to rebuild a life. That’s why it’s vitally important for sex offenders to do everything they can to avoid being convicted in the first place.
