  • Charges of Indecent Exposure and Distributing Obscene Material Dismissed Prior to Arraignment

    Our client is a licensed healthcare professional working throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. On June 26, 2020 the relative of one of his clients contacted her local police department to report that the man had shown her his genitals and asked for oral sex. She claimed to have been alarmed and rejected the advances. According to the woman our client persisted. He sent photos of himself exposed as well as videos of himself masturbating. He was charged with indecent exposure under G.L. c. 272 section 53 and distribution of obscene material, a violation of G.L. c. 272 section 29. The former charge is a misdemeanor and the latter is a felony. Attorney Neyman was hired immediately. Our office quickly learned of material indicating that our client did not engage in the activities reported by the victim. We requested a continuance of the arraignment. The request was allowed. Subsequently, Attorney Neyman communicated with the assigned assistant district attorney. That person was provided with exculpatory evidence. After reviewing the the evidence the district attorney's office agreed that the charges should not have issued. The matter was dismissed prior to arraignment.
