Merely being accused of a sex-crime is devastating. If convicted, you may be subject to a long prison sentence. You could also face lifetime registration under the Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry laws. Your picture and personal information would be placed on a police sex-offender web site, the result of which is that everyone in your neighborhood would know that you are a convicted sex offender. In this way, a sex-crime conviction will follow you for the rest of your life. It is vital that you consult an experienced Boston sex crimes defense attorney as soon as you learn you are under investigation for a sex crime.

Providing a Stong Defense Against Criminal Sexual Charges
There are three main defenses to sex-crimes charges. The appropriate defense, of course, depends on the information that a client provides to his or her lawyer. These defenses are as follows:
- The first defense would be to deny that any sexual assault occurred. A lawyer would have to persuade jurors that the alleged victim is simply not credible, and therefore there is a reasonable doubt regarding whether a crime even occurred;
- The second defense would be to admit that a sexual assault occurred, but to deny that the defendant did it. Stranger rape or stranger sexual assaults often involve photo-array, show-up or lineup identifications, all of which an experienced criminal defense lawyer may successfully attack. A skillful defense attorney may also cast doubt upon the Commonwealth's DNA or other scientific or forensic evidence, since there may have been problems with the collection, preservation or handling of trace materials.
- The third defense is consent. An alleged victim may call an incident rape or sexual assault after the fact, when in reality it was a consensual sexual act at the time. To create reasonable doubt, you will need an attorney who is a skilled cross-examiner and persuasive oral advocate.
Attorney Yannetti and his associates at the Yannetti Criminal Defense Law Firm have defended all types of sex-crime charges, including rape, indecent assault, and battery (improper touching) on person over 14, or on a child under 14, solicitation, molestation, and indecent exposure.
