Weston Sex Crimes
Weston is a very affluent Middlesex County town of about 11,200 people. In fact, according to U.S. Census information, Weston has the highest per capita income in the state of Massachusetts, making it potentially the state's wealthiest town. Not surprisingly, Weston has many of the attributes of a well-off community, including well-regarded schools and a low crime rate. It is home to several wealthy business and political figures, as well as current and former Red Sox and Celtics players like Jerry Remy, Cedric Maxwell and David Ortiz. Weston is one of three towns sharing access to the Waltham District Court, which hears less serious criminal matters like statutory rape and child pornography possession. Those accused of serious felonies like indecent assault and battery of a child will have cases heard in the Middlesex County Superior Court located in Woburn.

Sex crimes are some of the most harshly penalized criminal charges in Massachusetts. When you're accused of sex crimes, you face not only prison, but also significant civil penalties, potential career consequences and trouble in your personal life. Sex crimes carry a stigma in our culture, and that has caused "tough on crime" politicians to balloon the prison sentences for some crimes. It can also cause an immediate negative reaction among friends, family, co-workers and the larger community — often right after an accusation, but before anything is proven. If you work as a teacher, in law enforcement or another sensitive job, sex charges or a conviction can hurt or end your career. And many crimes carry a requirement to register as a sex offender in Massachusetts after release, with criminal penalties for failure to register.
The Law Offices of Stephen Neyman can help. Over more than 20 years of practicing law in Massachusetts, we have won many victories defending clients accused of serious sex crimes. We represent people from all personal and economic backgrounds who are accused of all kinds of sex crimes — including crimes that may not be well regarded in the larger community. Our lead attorney, Stephen Neyman, is a former prosecutor who applies that experience to understand what prosecutors need to prove their cases — then break down those cases. Sex-related cases have many avenues of defense, depending on the circumstances and the charges. Physical evidence is a part of that defense, but frequently, cases also turn on the circumstances behind the evidence and the motivations of the people involved. Our attorneys investigate cases completely so we can bring the full story to negotiations with prosecutors or to a jury.
