Singer faces multiples sex offenses in New York

A recent story involving a fairly well-known singer has made headlines after he is now facing rape and attempted rape charges.

Strong criminal defense needed for New York man

Criminal law understandably does not condone abuse and battery. Assault is a criminal offense that is punishable under New York law statutes.

New York barbers arrested on suspicion of sex offenses

There was only one barber still working at a New York barbershop when news media came to follow-up on a video of two men being arrested outside the shop. As it turns out, those two men were the 77-year-old owner and a 32-year-old man who also works as a barber in the shop. No one inside the shop would talk about the alleged sex offenses that may have taken place there.

Former New York surgeon accepts plea deal for felony charges

Last week, a former orthopedic surgeon accepted a plea deal in his health care fraud case. The man had been arrested and accused of felony charges of health care fraud as well as other charges. His sentencing is in March, and the New York surgeon faces up to 10 years in prison under the terms of his plea deal.

Professor accused of sex offenses with 15-year-old

Criminal law enforcement regularly imposes an enormous toll of punishment and personal disgrace upon a parade of highly respected professionals who are astonishingly caught in a wide variety of human weaknesses. The latest example of such a downfall occurred when New York State Police arrested a professor from a neighboring state who they say crossed state lines and had sexual contact with a 15-year-old teenager. The professor is charged with the sex offenses of third-degree criminal sexual act and endangering the welfare of a child, according to state police authorities.
