Sex Crimes

Frequently Asked Questions About Sex Crimes

What are the potential consequences if an individual is charged with a sex crime?

In Massachusetts, as in most states, a conviction of any sex crime is not as simple a matter as looking at the potential penalties for the particular crime. Any individual convicted of a sex crime is generally required to register as a sex offender. That registration, depending upon what level that convicted individual is deemed to be in terms of reoffense, can result in the potential publication of that individual’s name and address to the entire community. Such a conviction may also prohibit an individual from working in certain fields.

What should I do if charged with a sex crime?

It is extremely important to take all charges of sexual misconduct very seriously and to retain an attorney as soon as the potential for any such charges arise who has the experience to vigorously defend such charges. As with all crimes, it is best to decline to give any information to law enforcement personnell, other than the basic information related to your identity, and to ask for a lawyer to be present as soon as possible. Never discuss any charges without the benefit of legal counsel.
