Massachusetts Laws About Rape, Indecent Assault and Battery and indecent Exposure.
Rape or unwanted sexual contact between adults is equally serious and is also punished severely.
Students at state schools, colleges and universities have broader rights to defend themselves against rape accusations, but still face a very difficult fight to clear their names and save their academic futures.
Our Massachusetts rape defense law firm has successfully defended people in these accusations repeatedly over the years.
Rape convictions will almost certainly lead to state prison sentences and mandatory sex offender registration.
Indecent assault and battery convictions involve unwanted touching of another person in an indecent manner and are also punished by jail or prison sentences and mandatory registration.
Whether either or both would ever be prosecuted is of course a different question.
This is true for same sex and opposite sex contact.
Crimes involving child pornography are self-explanatory and are obviously very serious and troubling.
Possession of Child Pornography, Dissemination of Obscene Material and Photographing Nude Person or Sexual Parts of the Person.
Massachusetts criminalizes several computer and communications offenses that involve possession or distribution of child pornography or "obscene" material.
All that is required is intercourse with a person under sixteen, even if the act is “voluntary” by both people.
This is because, once again, a person under the sixteen can never legally consent to sexual intercourse, and any person who has sexual intercourse with a person under sixteen, even if the defendant is the same age or younger, has committed the crime of rape of a child. When two fifteen year-olds have sex or certain sexual conduct with each other, they have each committed the crime of rape of a child.
