Predatory Sexual Assault

Handled by Our New York Sexual Assault Lawyers

Under New York State law, a person is guilty of predatory sexual assault when he or she commits the crime of: (1) Rape in the first degree; (2) criminal sexual act in the first degree; (3) aggravated sexual abuse in the first degree; and (4) course of sexual conduct against a child in the first degree. When in the course of committing one of the named crimes or the immediate flight therefrom, the person causes serious physical injury to the victim of such crime. If convicted, a person will be charged with a Class A-II felony.

Under New York Penal Law §10.00(10), serious physical injury means impairment of a person’s physical condition which creates a substantial risk of death or which causes death or serious and protracted disfigurement, protected impairment of health, or protracted loss or impairment of the function of any bodily organ.

To be found guilty of this crime, the prosecution must be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt two elements: (1) That on the alleged date, the defendant committed an enumerated sexual crime; and (2) in the course of committing one of the named crimes or the immediate flight therefrom, the person causes serious physical injury to the victim of such crime.
