Is the Sex Offender Registry Made Public?

One of the most embarrassing and frustrating penalties for a sex crime is mandatory sex offender registration. The sex offender registry is an online database that has your name, age, physical characteristics, and details about your crime. If you are forced to register, anyone can look up your name in the online sex offender registry. Registration may also govern where you can live and whether or not you are allowed near public parks or schools.

It is a penalty that will follow you long after your sentence has been served. Guilty parties that do not comply with the registration requirement may be imprisoned.

Sexual Assault in Massachusetts

Unfortunately, most sex crime cases are a “he said, she said” debate. There are rarely witnesses. The state of Massachusetts defines sexual assault as a crime in which an offender subjects a victim to sexual contact that is unwanted or offensive.

Sometimes, the lines that govern unwanted or offensive contact can be blurry. Our sex crimes lawyers in Boston will do our best to fight for case dismissal or a not guilty verdict based on the evidence that we are given, the way in which the case has been conducted, and your story.

What are the Penalties for Sexual Assault or Battery in Massachusetts?

There are two different categories of sexual assault where battery is associated: indecent assault and battery and aggravated sexual assault. This does not include cases of rape or statutory rape, which often result in harsher penalties.

Some of the penalties for sexual assault or battery are as follows:

  • Indecent assault or battery on a person over 14: Up to five years in prison
  • Indecent assault or battery on a person under 14: A maximum of 10 years in prison
  • Indecent assault or battery on a person with a mental disability: A maximum of 10 years in prison
  • Indecent assault or battery of an elderly person or a person with a physical disability: A maximum of 10 years in prison
  • Aggravated indecent assault of a child under 14: A minimum of 10 years in prison with a maximum life sentence

If a case of sexual assault results in medical attention for the victim, it is considered aggravated sexual assault. These cases merit longer prison sentences than cases of indecent assault and battery.
