The Sanders Firm, P.C. in New York City takes accusations and charges related to hate crimes and actual hate crimes as seriously as can be. We defend those accused of hate crimes, endeavoring to ensure that they receive a fair trial after being charged for what is considered one of the worst crimes against the people, the community, and the constitution. In this section, we look at both hate crimes and terrorism, as both are related in terms of the crime itself and the affect they have on our free society.
Hate Crime in the U.S.
Hate crimes are certainly older than this country and since its inception; those living in this free society have suffered from the terrible effects of these crimes. Crimes of hate have focused on specific races, ethnicities, and religions, those of certain sexual orientations, gender, and other aspects that might make someone “different.” These crimes have always been heinous, deplorable events. However, it is not until recently that the nation and its states have devised laws specifically focused on such crimes against the person.
