Newburyport Sexual Assault
With a population in the low 20,000s, Newburyport is a small city in Essex County, Massachusetts, near the border with New Hampshire. Because it lies on the Gulf of Maine and the Atlantic, Newburyport was once important as a center of trade, fishing and shipbuilding. These days, residents frequently commute via I-95 to jobs in Boston, Lawrence or New Hampshire.What Sex Crimes Are Prosecuted In Newburport?

If you’re accused of a sex crime, you’re facing serious penalties affecting every part of your life and the lives of your loved ones. A conviction for many felony sex crimes means time in prison, steep fines, financial restitution where appropriate and an obligation to register with the state as a sex offender, with serious penalties for failing to register. Outside of court, you can also face devastating consequences for your relationships and your reputation, and sometimes your career. When sex charges become widely known, the community can turn against the person accused, long before he or she is actually tried in a court of law. Jobs working with children, in law enforcement and other industries are also threatened by a charge.Experience Defending Sex Crimes That You Can Count On
