Chelsea Sex Crimes
Small but densely populated, the city of Chelsea lies just across the Mystic River from downtown Boston. In fact, a settlement built there in 1624 may be the first permanent settlement on Boston Harbor. The city’s historic landmarks include the Bellingham Carey Mansion, which George Washington used as a headquarters during the Revolutionary War. Modern Chelsea has a troubled history, with two massive fires in 1908 and 1973. Financial problems later led the Massachusetts state government to put Chelsea into receivership, although economic development efforts have borne fruit and it is once again self-governing. These days, it has a working-class population with Hispanic and Latino people heavily represented. Chelsea is the home of the Chelsea District Court, at 120 Broadway, which also serves citizens of Revere. That court hears trials of misdemeanor crimes and felonies carrying less than five years, like possession of child pornography. People accused of rape, sexual assault or other serious felonies use the Superior Court across the river in Boston.
Don’t Wait to Call Us About Serious Sex Crimes
Being charged with a sex crime can change your life, and not in a good way. People charged with serious sex crimes can face long mandatory prison sentences, or ambiguous sentences like “any amount of years or life,” which may leave your fate in the hands of a hostile jury. But the penalties don’t end — or start — with prison. Before your case gets anywhere near a courtroom, media reports about it can hurt marriages and other personal relationships and harm your standing in the community. Some employers can fire you outright when you’re facing these kinds of charges, and others may put you on suspension or start professional discipline. And if you’re convicted of certain crimes, you can face mandatory sex offender registration after your release, which restricts your freedom for decades more. Failure to register as a sex offender can get you in further legal trouble.
If you’re facing these and other criminal penalties, you should contact the Law Offices of Stephen Neyman today to talk about how we can help. Based in downtown Boston, we represent people from Chelsea and all over the metropolitan area who are facing serious sex-related charges. Lead attorney Stephen Neyman started his career as a prosecutor, but has spent more than 20 years defending clients from serious criminal charges. Over the years, we’ve successfully defended many people facing sex charges, winning acquittals and other positive outcomes. Despite the hysteria our culture shows about sex, it’s absolutely possible to win in the courtroom or the negotiating table. To give each client the best defense possible, we always start by investigating the facts — including circumstances, evidence from the scene and background about the relationships of the people involved. All of those facts and others can cast the evidence in a new light, helping defendants demonstrate why they should not be convicted.
