Sex Crimes Archives

Understanding what qualifies as a lack of consent

One of the more difficult aspects of dating in Kew Gardens may be interpreting the signs that your partner may be giving off indicating his or her interest in escalating the level of intimacy between to the two of you. Several of those that we here at Robert D. DiDio and Associates have worked with in the past have allowed such indicators to prompt them to initiate sexual relations with partners, yet later were told they were never given consent to do so. According to Section 130.20.3 of the New York Penal Code, such an action meets the definition of third degree rape.

Prosecutors: The Internet can be used as a physical weapon

Ever since it first came into widespread use, the Internet has been used by some to facilitate criminal activity. Most of these crimes are transactional in nature - such as buying drugs on the now-defunct Silk Road website or trading videos and images of child pornography.

One persistent question that comes up with this topic: Is consensual sexting between teens a crime?

Internet crimes: disclosure of hacking software may be necessary

Last month, we wrote about the important intersection between law enforcement powers and our right to privacy. The Fourth Amendment offers protections against "unreasonable search and seizure," but that standard isn't always easy to define - especially when it comes to our electronic devices.

New York legislators consider bill to prevent wrongful convictions

Groups like The Innocence Project have significantly raised public awareness about the issue of wrongful convictions. We would like to think that the criminal justice system produces only fair and accurate outcomes, free of racism and other bias. We would like to think that - but we know better.
