Quincy Sex Crimes
Quincy is the eighth-largest city in the state of Massachusetts and one of the biggest in the South Shore region. Its name comes from the family that produced Presidents John Quincy Adams and John Adams, as well as First Lady Abigail Adams. The area’s history actually extends to before Europeans settlers arrived, when a leader of the Massachusett people took it for his headquarters. Puritans later adopted the area, in part because the Massachusett had already cleared some land for farming. Rock quarrying was a major industry in Quincy in its early days, and indeed, Quincy was an early adopter of railroads so granite could be carried away. It later became an important center for shipbuilding and built many U.S. warships. Quincy is home to the Quincy District Court, which handles trials of misdemeanor and lesser felony matters such as statutory rape. Quincy residents’ serious felony charges for crimes like sexual assault and distribution of child pornography are heard at the Dedham Superior Court.
Don’t Wait to Get Help With Sex-Related Charges
Sex crimes are not like other serious crimes in Massachusetts. Any kind of criminal charge is embarrassing, but many sex crimes are so reviled that defendants can find themselves with fewer friends almost as soon as the news gets out. Sex-related charges can cause trouble at school or work, even ending careers in some sensitive fields. Thanks to politicians determined to look tough on an offense nobody likes, the sentences can be very long. And for certain kinds of crimes, including many sex crimes that victimize children, a sex crime conviction can lead to an obligation to register with the state as a sex offender. Thus, even when you’ve done your time for a sex crime, your freedom can remain constricted for decades or for life afterward, with criminal penalties for failure to register.
If you’re facing these kinds of penalties, you should call the Law Offices of Stephen Neyman for help. Our lead attorney, Stephen Neyman, has successfully represented many Massachusetts residents accused of serious sex crimes. Our record of successes includes acquittals in court, victories at pre-trial hearings, dismissed or dropped charges and more. Sex crimes can be easier to defend than upset, stressed defendants might think. Because the events leading up to them usually take place in private, the accuser and the defendant may be the only witnesses. Frequently, that means police have to choose the story they think is most credible. Part of our defense in this kind of case is helping clients bolster their own credibility, while exploring the credibility of the accuser. Sometimes, accusers misuse the criminal justice system for revenge or personal gain, threatening innocent people with time in prison. When this is taking place, we work hard to bring the full story to the prosecutors and, if necessary, the jury.
