criminal lawyer buffalo ny should be informed the Fourth Department of the New York Appellate Division determined a sex offender’s violation of his strict and intensive supervision and treatment agreement did not justify a finding he has an inability to control sexual misconduct.

Under New York’s Mental Hygiene Law § 10.03, a finding of ‘inability’ based on nonsexual SIST violations is justified only when such violations bear a close causative relationship to sex offending. In the case of a non-sexual violation involving consuming alcohol, there is not a significant link between respondent’s alcohol use disorder and his sex offenses.
