Types of Sex Crimes in Concord

There are various types of sex crimes in Massachusetts.  Many fall in the realm of sexual assault and rape, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Indecent exposure;
  • Open and gross lewd and lascivious behavior;
  • Indecent assault and battery;
  • Assault with intent to rape; and
  • Rape.

Typical cases involving children are statutory rape and distribution or possession of child pornography.  Any sex crime has the potential to dramatically impact a defendant throughout his lifetime, affecting where he may live, work, and the kinds of employment he may hold.

Indecent Exposure

To convict a defendant of a sex crime, the Commonwealth must prove the defendant satisfied each element in the statutory definition of that crime beyond a reasonable doubt.  For instance, indecent exposure, a lesser sex crime, requires the Commonwealth to prove the defendant:

  1. Intentionally expose his or her genitals to another person; and
  2. At least one person was offended by the exposure.

A defendant convicted of indecent exposure may serve a short jail sentence or be ordered to pay a fine.  

Indecent Assault and Battery

Indecent assault and battery, a much more severe sex crime, can occur between married persons, strangers, or as a crime on a person under the age of fourteen (the elements are the same except for the age).  The elements of indecent assault and battery are as follows:

  1. The alleged victim was at least fourteen years old at the time of the alleged offense;
  2. The defendant intentionally touched the alleged victim without legal justification or excuse;
  3. The defendant touched a part of the body that is commonly thought private, such as the genital area or buttocks, or the breasts of a female; and
  4. The alleged victim did not consent to the touching.

A conviction for indecent assault and battery carries a possible state prison sentence and registration as a sex offender.          

Rape

Convicted rapists must register as sex offenders.  They may serve up to a life prison sentence or be subject to indefinite commitment to a treatment center.  

To convict a defendant of rape, the Commonwealth must prove:

  1. The defendant engaged in either natural or unnatural intercourse with the alleged victim; and
  2. The defendant compelled the alleged victim to submit by force or threat of bodily injury against his or her will.
