Lynn Sex Crimes
First settled in the 1600s by British immigrants, Lynn is a city of about 90,000 people in southern Essex County, Massachusetts. Because it’s not far from downtown Boston, Lynn is home to many commuters, but also has a history as a manufacturing center in the early 20th century. That manufacturing past is now the focus of redevelopment efforts aimed at converting former industrial spaces into residential units for younger homeowners. Lynn has its own District Court at 580 Essex Street, which hears misdemeanor and less serious felony crimes such as solicitation of prostitution. People accused of committing more serious sex crimes in Lynn, including forcible rape, will use the Salem Superior Court.Prostitution and Prostitution Solicitation Defense
These days the Lynn police target prostitutes and their customers quite regularly. They watch known offenders making contact with interested consumers. They follow them, sometimes illegally. Arrests are made on suspicion, not always fact. Stings are set up where even innocent people end up on the wrong side of the law. This is where we can help. We have been winning Lynn prostitution and solicitation cases for years.
Call Us Today About Sex Charges
No other category of crimes is treated quite the same as sex crimes in Massachusetts. Being charged with a sex crime carries not only criminal penalties, but civil and personal penalties as well. In addition to prison or jail time and fines, which can be quite harsh, a sex-related conviction often carries an obligation to register as a sex offender. In some occupations, it can mean losing your job or your license, or professional discipline. And sex charges can divide your community or destroy your reputation, or sometimes even hurt your marriage. In fact, the social and personal consequences of being charged with a sex crime usually start long before any actual conviction, thanks to publicity in the media or an embarrassing arrest.
