Sex Crimes

 

Massachusetts sex crimes attorney

 

Being charged with a sex crime can be devastating to the reputation of a person.  Aside from the damages to your reputation, it can mean long prison sentences and a lifetime of sex offender registration requirements. These requirments require your photograph and address information and is a matter of public record.

 

 

Sex crimes range from misdemeanor to felonies

 

 

 

 

 

Defenses to a sex crime charge

 

The two most common sex crime defenses includes denial and consent. Denial of the charges simply means you did not comitt the crime, that someone else did.  This comes down to credibility on the witness victim while on the witness stand and whether or not the police have DNA, fingerprints, video evidence and/or eyewitness testimony. Often times the only evidence needed to charge someone is the victims words and testimony alone. 

 

 

The second defense to a sex crime is consent.  "Date rape" or sex crimes involving people the accuser knows falls under this category. Character witnesses that can testisty as to the defendants peaceful reputation in the community can help. However, once the door is opened to this kind of testimony the prosecution may counter by introducing its own reputational testimony and similar specific acts. Ultimately, a jury must be convinced that the alleged victim simply cannot be believed and that their credibility is at issue.

 

Client Testimonial

Indecent Sexual Assault and Battery (over 14) - Not Guilty


"I was charged with 3 felony sexual assault & battery charges.  My bail was set at $10,000, but I knew I did not commit these crimes, it was a co-worker out to get me! I interviewed several law firms and decided to hire Attorney St.Louis and I'm extremely thankful that I did! The D.A. was offering 1 year in jail, 5 years probation and registry with the sex registry board. It would have ruined my life!  Attorney St.Louis turned down the offer and took it to trial. He interviewed witnesses and had his private investigator research the case. We went to a jury trial, the jury deliberated for only 1 hour - I was found Not Guilty! He literally saved my life! If your ever falsely accused, do yourself a favor and hire this man, he will fight for you!" - Edwaurdo, C.,2012
