Sex Crimes

Cape Cod Sex Crimes Lawyer

Few criminal accusations can have the same impact as those involving sex crimes. The accusation alone, even before you have had a chance to prove your innocence in court, can be devastating. Your reputation can be destroyed, your friends may become distrustful, and even your family can look at you differently. The bias associated with accusations of this nature can put your job or career at risk with unfair prejudice. With formal charges filed against you, your future can be jeopardized with jail or prison time, heavy fines, probation, and the potential for mandatory lifetime sex offender registration.

Sex Crime Charges in Massachusetts

Sex crime charges in Massachusetts are based on unwanted gestures, touching, or activity committed against both adults and children. 

Examples of Massachusetts sex crimes can include but are not limited to:

  • Statutory rape
  • Rape and aggravated rape
  • Lewd and lascivious conduct
  • Indecent exposure
  • Indecent assault and battery
  • Assault with the intent to commit rape

Sex Crime Penalties

Sex crimes vary by nature, severity, and the age or circumstances of the alleged victim, as well as any aggravating factors on the part of the alleged defendant, such as using a dangerous weapon to commit the offense. Each crime carries its own specific penalties based on either misdemeanor or felony charges. For example, Massachusetts law regarding rape allows for a punishment of up to life in prison. In general, misdemeanor crimes carry jail terms of less than a year, while felonies are punishable by prison sentences of a year or more. Sex offender registration may be required at a Level One, Level Two, or Level Three rate — each level carries its own specific rules and requirements.
