Revere Sex Crimes
Named for Revolutionary War figure Paul Revere, the city of Revere is just five miles from downtown Boston. In fact, it is right next door to Logan International Airport and other Boston-area employment centers. Revere has a beach district with a boardwalk, roller coasters and other amusements, including a greyhound dog racing track that closed in 2009. Unfortunately, Revere Beach fell out of favor with beachgoers in the latter half of the 20th century, and a blizzard hurt much of the infrastructure in 1978. Revere and neighboring Winthrop are both served by the Chelsea District Court, where judges hear misdemeanor trials and trials of less serious felonies like statutory rape. More serious felony trials for offenses like sexual assault and distribution of child pornography go to the Suffolk County Superior Court in downtown Boston.
Experienced Defense for Serious Sex Crimes
If you live in Revere or anywhere else in Massachusetts, you should take sex-related criminal charges seriously. A sex crime is not just another felony charge; it's a felony charge that carries significant social baggage and civil penalties. Massachusetts law calls for sentences of "life or any amount of years" for crimes like rape, and lays down long mandatory prison sentences for others. Once offenders have served this time, they are often further penalized with an obligation to register with the state as sex offenders, with criminal penalties for failure to register. Sex charges can create strong reactions from the community, so if word of your case gets out, your relationships with the people closest to you can suffer. And people working in certain fields can be suspended, disciplined or fired after being charged or convicted of a sex crime, which can end careers altogether.
With this much at stake in your case, you should call the Law Offices of Stephen Neyman for help. Our lead attorney, Stephen Neyman, has more than 20 years of experience defending serious sex crimes in Massachusetts. Our firm has won many victories for people facing sex charges in greater Boston, which includes not guilty verdicts after a trial, plea deals with favorable time and more. Some clients come to us fearing that there's no good defense in their cases, but in fact, we can often find a strong defense to sex crimes. Because most accusations refer to actions that took place behind closed doors, it's frequently one person's word against another's — and that means credibility matters. We work hard to build your credibility in front of a jury, and when appropriate, look for ulterior motives or other circumstances suggesting that the accuser may not be so credible.
