Charges for molesting a child

Ask a Lawyerwhat's this?


Country: United States of America
State: New York

When a person molests a child and the mother wants to press charges on that person what charges can the judge give that person? Meaning the name of the charges and whether they are misdemeanors or felonies.


The DA will decide what charges to bring but they normally will be felony charges if any sexual contact occurred.
