New York City sex crimes lawyers Russ Kofman and Arthur Lebedin release a new article (https://www.lebedinkofman.com/practice-areas/criminal-defense/sex-crimes/sexual-conduct-against-a-child/) explaining the crime of Course of Sexual Conduct Against a Child. The lawyers mention that a person can be guilty of this offense if they engage in two or more sexual acts with a child in a period of not less than three months. The act of sexual conduct must also include at least one act of sexual intercourse, oral sexual conduct, or other sexual acts involving a child less than 11 years old.

“A person is deemed incapable of consent when he or she is less than 11 years old. The law deems sexual conduct with a person who is less than eleven years old to be without that person’s consent, even if in fact he or she did consent. It is not a defense that the actor did not know that the person with whom the actor had contact was less than 11 years old or that the actor believed that such person was 11 years old or more on the date of the crime,” the article from the New York City sex crimes lawyers says.

Attorney Russ Kofman explains that sexual conduct means sexual intercourse, oral sexual conduct, anal sexual conduct, aggravated sexual contact, or sexual conduct. New York State Penal Law also defines sexual intercourse as any form of penetration of the penis into the vaginal opening. It does not have to require erection, emission, or orgasm.

Defense attorney Arthur Lebedin adds that oral sexual conduct is any sexual contact that involves the mouth. Anal sexual conduct, on the other hand, means conduct between persons consisting of contact between the penis and the anus. “Aggravated sexual conduct means inserting a foreign object in the vagina, urethra, penis, rectum, or anus of a child and causing physical injury to such child,” says attorney Lebedin in the article.

In the article, the lawyers also discuss the New YorkPenal Law § 130.75 (1) (B) or the Course of Sexual Conduct Against a Child. If a person is convicted of this crime, they will be facing charges of a class B felony.

The criminal defense attorneys add, “To be found guilty of course of sexual conduct against a child in the first degree, the prosecution must be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt three elements: (1) That over a period of time not less than three months in duration, the defendant engaged in two or more acts of sexual conduct with the complainant; (2) the sexual conduct included at least one act of sexual intercourse, oral sexual conduct, anal sexual, conduct, or aggravated sexual contact; and (3) that complainant was less than 13 years old.”

Lastly, attorney Kofman emphasizes the importance of having a skilled lawyer when facing a charge of a Course of Sexual Conduct Against a Child. An experienced lawyer may be able to help the defendant understand their rights and protect their freedom.
