Essex County Sex Crimes

Essex County unites a group of cities and towns in the extreme northeast corner of the state of Massachusetts, bordering New Hampshire and the Atlantic Ocean. Though the area is home to government agencies like the Essex County Sheriff’s Department, there is no official government of Essex County anymore. Instead, government services tend to be concentrated in the county’s biggest cities, which include Salem in the south and Lawrence in the northwest. The county’s major courts include Superior Courts in Salem, Lawrence and Newburyport, which hear serious felony sex crimes trials. The county also includes district courts in Haverhill, Lynn, Ipswich, Peabody, Lawrence, Salem and Newburyport, which handle less serious sex crimes matters such as prostitution.

Take Your Charges Seriously

If you’re charged with rape, possession of child pornography or any other serious sex offense, don’t wait to call the Law Offices of Stephen Neyman for help. Because our society can be hysterical about sexual matters, sex crimes can carry very harsh penalties. Even statutory rape of someone under age 16 (the age of consent) can carry a sentence of “life or any amount of years.” People accused of sex crimes against minors, including possession of child pornography, or violent crimes, can also be required to register as sex offenders in Massachusetts for 20 years to life. A sex-related accusation alone can cause problems at work and in your social life.

Everyone is entitled to a fair trial in our country, including people who might be reviled in the community because of the charges against them.

Stephen Neyman, our experienced lead attorney, fights back with the facts as well as a thorough investigation of the circumstances behind those facts. In nearly 30 years of practicing law, we’ve successfully defended all kinds of adult and child sex crimes.
