Sex crime accusations represent a triple threat. A conviction may carry mandatory time in prison. The felony record itself has long-term consequences. And there is the burden and the stigma of registering as a sex offender for the rest of your life. The most serious sex offenders serve years in prison but are never released – following their prison sentence, they are “civilly committed” as sexually dangerous persons at the Massachusetts Treatment Center for the rest of their lives.

In many cases pleading guilty, even to a lesser charge, is out of the question because of the devastating collateral consequences.

Does the alleged victim or the alleged victim’s parent have a motive to fabricate accusations?
