Luring a Child (NY PL 120.70) is charged in Rochester when prosecutors believe they can prove that you lured a child under the age of 17 into a vehicle, structure, or place in order to commit any of a series of specified crimes against the child, including kidnapping, murder, and incest.
Because of the seriousness of the allegations in a Luring case, an experienced Rochester criminal defense attorney is critical to surviving these charges.
Penalties for Luring a Child will vary based on the crime committed against the child.
As a base charge, Luring a Child is a class E felony, with a sentence of up to four years if convicted.
If the underlying crime against the child was a class A or B felony, then you’ll be charged with either a class C or D felony for Luring, respectively.
At those levels, you’ll face a maximum of 15 years (class C felony) or seven years (class D felony) in prison.
Luring a Child and the related offenses you’re charged with have the potential to ruin your life.
