Civil Confinement Lawyer in New York
If you were convicted of a sex crime in New York, served your sentence and paid your penalties, you may have hoped to move on with your life — only to find this impossible due to New York’s civil confinement law. Tougher laws for dealing with sex offenders have been extended to life after completion of official prison sentences, by way of civil confinement.
Governor Eliot Spitzer signed into law a civil confinement law that allows ongoing imprisonment of sex offenders in “civil confinement” situations following completion of prison sentences. A sex offender may be subjected to civil confinement if he or she is deemed to be suffering from a mental disorder.
