If you or a loved one has been accused of a sex crime or of child abuse, you know how important it is to find quality, aggressive legal representation. Unfortunately, being charged with a crime like sexual assault, child pornography, child molestation, indecent solicitation of a child or child abuse often times has immediate and lasting effects on your job, your loved ones, and your reputation, even if you are completely innocent. Without the support of a knowledgeable, empathetic attorney, defending against such a charge can be overwhelming and down-right frightening.

This blog is designed to discuss recent cases, legislation and news in Rhode Island  and Massachusetts regarding sex crimes and child abuse. Topics will include proposed amendments to current Rhode Island and Massachusetts statutes, rulings from the states’ trial and appellate courts, and news articles discussing these crimes. The purpose of this blog is to help educate and inform Rhode Island and Massachusetts residents about how sex crimes and child abuse are handled in the state, and how wide-spread the impact of a conviction has on the defendant’s life.  While many are quick to condemn anyone accused of a sex crime, there are many reasons to reserve judgment and view things from a different perspective.  Hopefully, through this blog, those who are quick to judge can do just that.

Discussions are welcome on any of the postings. However, it should be noted that this blog will cover very sensitive and sometimes polarized issues. Any inappropriate, harassing or malicious postings will be deleted. I hope you will find this blog informative, and will use this space to find comfort with and understanding of these difficult issues.
