Sexual Assault

Crimes of a sexual nature are taken very seriously by prosecutors and judges alike, and persons charged with crimes like indecent exposure, molestation, or sexual assault may face severe punishment and loss of rights. While most people understand that the use of force to coerce an individual into having sexual relations is considered sexual assault, many do not realize that any unwanted sexual contact may be considered assault.

Sex crimes often carry serious criminal penalties and may include incarceration, probation, and registration as a sex-offender for a long period of time. Persons facing criminal charges should consider having an experienced attorney on their side to defend their livelihood. If you or someone you know has been charged with sexual assault, contact the Massachusetts sexual assault defense attorney James Powderly at 508-343-0676 today.
