When a person is convicted of a crime that has been designated a Sexually Motivated Felony under NY PL 130.91, your judge in Rochester will sentence you under an enhanced schedule.
For instance, conviction of a D felony would normally lead to a sentence of between one and seven years.
When your charge is prosecuted as a Sexually Motivated Felony, conviction means that you’ll face between two and seven years, doubling the time you’ll have to serve before you’re eligible for parole.
At the B felony level, the minimum sentence for a Sexually Motivated Felony becomes five years, instead of one year to one-third of maximum sentence given.
Avoiding the Sexually Motivated Felony designation is an important job for your attorney, but defending you against enhanced charges that can take away years of your life is crucial.
