A charge of Rape in the First Degree (NY PL 130.25) in Buffalo is instantly recognizable to everyone for the underlying crime, and is an extremely serious class B felony that carries a sentence of up to 25 years if you’re convicted.
Once released, you’ll also be required to register as a sex offender, and live with the significant constraints that go with that.
New York does not allow expungement of felony records, so you’ll have no opportunity to have the record of your conviction expunged at a later date.
