Those who are repeatedly convicted of misdemeanor sexual offenses, such as forcible touching or sexual abuse, will eventually find themselves subject a felony charge in Buffalo.
Under Persistent Sexual Abuse (NY PL 130.53), those with two past convictions for one of those misdemeanor charges in the previous ten years will be subject to a class E felony charge and could go to prison for as long as four years.
Persistent Sexual Abuse is also a registerable offense for New York’s sex offender registry, so you will be subject to intense scrutiny from neighbors and law enforcement long after you’ve returned to society.
