What penalties do I face?

Sex crime allegations are no small matter here in Massachusetts. The state has stiff penalties for convicted sex offenders and you could even end up with your name on the Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Board for life. This means that people know your name and can even see a picture of you.

A sex crime conviction will follow you for the rest of your life, which is why you need the help of my premier criminal defense law firm to clear your name. Here at KRP Law, LLC we defend against a wide range of sex crimes, including:

  • Child Pornography
  • Indecent Exposure
  • Rape/Statutory Rape
  • Prostitution
  • Internet Sex Crimes
  • Indecent Assault and Battery
  • Violating the Sex Offender Registration Requirements

What should I expect if I have been charged with a sex crime in Salem?

If the sex crime involves a minor, section 16F allows for the trial to be expedited. This means the trial will be scheduled as soon as possible and given priority over other types of cases. In section 13H, committing indecent assault and battery on a person who is fourteen or older can result in a prison term of up to five years. In section 13B, indecent assault and battery on a person under fourteen could bring a prison sentence of up to ten years in state prison or up to 21 ½ years in the state prison. These laws are all very conservative. You could even serve jail time for adultery.
