Victims’ Rights and Representation in Court


The anxiety you experience when you open your first email can never be overstated.

Who should I call to gain their attention? Do you think this will ever be resolved?” While no criminal lawyer or New York Blackmail lawyer will be able to give you an exact answer, you can put yourself in the best possible position to stop being victimised and abused while maintaining your career and family if you take the right steps, listen to your counsel, and take charge of the situation.

Assaults in New York City.

However much property is demanded in return for your quiet, both behaviours are illegal and are punishable as crimes under New York’s Penal Law. As a general rule of thumb, if a person threatens you with a lie, secret, or truth if you don’t pay or hand up property, then you are most certainly a victim of blackmail. Anyone may be the victim of blackmail, and it can come in many forms. Under New York Penal Law 155.05(e), a threat of bodily harm or criminal accusations are among the offences that constitute this violation. A crime is more severe if you paid your extortionist, and the amount of money involved is a factor. Penal Law 155.30(6) and 155.40 provide you the legal authority to prosecute or “educate” your culprit about his or her unlawful action if you have adequate grounds to do so.

Disciplinary and Punishment

If the person committing the offence or the property, as well as the amount sought or seized, are in danger of bodily injury, a sentence of up to twenty-five years in prison is conceivable for Grand Larceny. We can help you in التبليغ عن ابتزاز.

A visual aid and a wild guess

To be clear, anybody who threatens to call or publish information about you on social media about your venereal illness (whether it’s true or not), faked tax returns, or that you’re a major drug user, regardless of the truth or not, is most likely blackmailing you to get what they want.


You have the legal right to engage in conduct or refrain from engaging in behaviour you have the right to independently pursue under New York Penal Law 135.60 & 135.65, therefore if you are a victim, learn about these charges under New York Penal Law 135.60 & 135.65.
