Buffalo Criminal Lawyer Discusses Being Required to Register as a Sex Offender
As an experienced Buffalo Criminal Lawyer, I often speak to people who have questions about registering as a sex offender.
- If you have been convicted of a sex crime in New York State, you must register as a sex offender.
- Exceptions, such as forcible touching, which is a Class A misdemeanor, do not require registration.
- Forcible touching is related to contact with a sexual or intimate part of another person – whether above or below their clothing – such as squeezing, pinching, or slapping a person’s intimate or sexual areas.
