Manhattan forcible touching lawyers Russ Kofman and Arthur Lebedin release a new article (https://www.lebedinkofman.com/practice-areas/criminal-defense/sex-crimes/forcible-touching/) explaining the different types of forcible touching. The lawyers mention that in New York, a person is guilty of forcible touching when they forcibly touch another person’s intimate parts for the purpose of degrading or abusing that person or gratifying the defendant’s sexual desires.
“If a person is found guilty of forcible touching, he or she will be charged with a Class A misdemeanor. Forcible touching occurs without a person’s consent when it results from any circumstance in which a person does not expressly or impliedly acquiesce to the actor’s conduct,” the article from the Manhattan forcible touching lawyers says.
Attorney Russ Kofman says that forcible touching includes squeezing, grabbing, pinching, rubbing, or other bodily contact involving the application of pressure to the victim’s sexual or intimate parts. Forcible touching also includes intentionally forcibly touching the sexual or other intimate parts of another person with the objective of just doing so.
Defense attorney Arthur Lebedin adds that the prosecution team will need to be able to prove three elements beyond a reasonable doubt. First, the prosecution must prove that the defendant touched the other person’s intimate parts for the purpose of degrading or abusing them; second, the defendant performed the act intentionally with no legitimate purpose; and third, the prosecutor must be able to prove that the defendant forcibly touched the complainant without their consent.
“If you are facing charges of touching someone forcibly, it is important to seek the legal support of an experienced criminal defense attorney. Having a skilled lawyer by your side through these charges is very important to ensure that you have the best defense strategy possible for your case. A good defense lawyer may also be able to help you receive the most favorable outcome possible,” attorney Lebedin says.
Lastly, attorney Kofman emphasizes the importance of having a skilled lawyer when facing charges of forcibly touching another person. An experienced lawyer may be able to help the defendant understand their rights and protect their freedom.
