Common types of sexual violence include:

Rape carries a long prison sentence as well as registration as sex offender. Statutory rape includes sexual intercourse with a minor and also carries harsh penalties. Indecent assault and battery, as legally defined, is committed when an offender, without the victim’s consent, intentionally engages in physical contact of a sexual nature with the victim, which includes acts such as groping, kissing, hugging, or any other unwanted touching.

Sexual assault is more broadly defined, and includes forced sexual acts that do not involve penetration. If you are convicted of any one of these charges, as well as public indecency involving public urination, flashing, and mooning, you will be labeled as a sex offender. The Worcester criminal defense attorneys at Murphy & Rudolf, LLP can analyze the specific facts of your case and help determine the best course of action to pursue a beneficial outcome.

The Issue of Consent

One key element of violent sex offenses is the issue of consent. Massachusetts specifically defines what constitutes consent. It is an agreement by both individuals to engage in a specific activity. This is mitigated by a number of situations in which an individual is deemed incapable of giving consent, including intoxication, unconsciousness, mental incompetence (including the mentally disabled or mentally ill), and those under the age of consent.

Defending Alleged Violent Sexual Offenders in Massachusetts

Even after serving one’s time in prison, a convicted sex offender has little chance of living a normal life in the outside world. The stain of being labeled a sex offender, and even the accusation of such, can make a person a pariah. With dedicated Worcester criminal defense lawyers from Murphy & Rudolf, LLP, you can get aggressive representation to help protect your rights and reputation.
