Sex Crime Penalties in Massachusetts
If you have been charged with a sex crime, it is imperative that you retain the services of an experienced sex crime lawyer. The penalties for sex crimes are some of the harshest in the country, and if you are convicted, you could face jail time, fines, and a lifetime sex offender registration. It is important to have a criminal defense attorney who will fight to protect your rights and work to get your charges reduced or dismissed.
Some of the sex crimes that can result in serious penalties include:
- Indecent assault and battery
- Statutory rape
- Oral copulation
- Lewd and lascivious acts
- Child pornography
- Internet sex crimes
If you are a juvenile, you could still be charged with a sex crime even if the alleged victim was a willing participant. If you are 18 years of age or older and the victim is under 16 years of age, you could be charged with statutory rape—even if there’s only a year’s age difference.
