A father accused of drunk driving while his 5-year-old son was in the car is claiming that the allegations are false.

Last Friday night, a car accident happened involving the Cape Cod man as well as an ambulance. According to the report issued by the Cape Cod police, the father was driving intoxicated when he failed to stop behind an emergency vehicle, crashing into the back of the vehicle. The ambulance had it’s lights on and the vehicle slammed into it again, this time becoming lodged into the back.

The man was arrested after police smelled alcohol on his breath and was reportedly wearing his shirt backwards. His son was taken to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries after being thrown from his seat due to not properly being fastened into the car. The Cape Cod man is denying these allegations, stating that his son was strapped into the car and definitely had a seat belt on.

The police are standing behind their report and the man is due back in court in November to face the charges against him.

Cape Cod’s Camp Good News forced to close it’s doors due to sexual allegations

Posted on October 12th, 2011 No Comments

At least nine people have come forward claiming they were abused while attending Cape Cod’s Camp Good News as children. The sexual assault occurred during different summers the victims spent at the Christian camp.

New legislation may make it possible for these adult-aged victims to finally receive justice for what happened to them during their childhood. In the state of Massachusetts, victims have until the age of 25 to report sexual abuse and until the age of 30 to report childhood rape.

Many factors contribute to victims waiting  until they are grown adults to report their attackers including guilt and suppressed emotions.

Cape Cod’s Camp Good News closed it’s doors this summer once the sexual assault allegations were made public.

If you have been accused of a sexual crime, please contact the experienced Massachusetts sex crimes attorney James Powderly by calling 508-343-0676 today.
