Just being accused of a sex crime can be devastating to a person's family, career and entire life. If convicted, you may be subject to a long prison sentence. You may also face a registration requirement with the Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Board. (SORB)
The best way to avoid these consequences is to prepare a strong and effective criminal defense by working with an experienced sex crimes defense lawyer. Contact criminal defense attorney William Barabino by calling his Medford, Massachusetts, law office at 781-393-5900 to schedule a free initial consultation.
Attorney William Barabino handles a range of sex crimes for people facing allegations:
- Indecent exposure
- Lewd and lascivious conduct
- Indecent assault and battery (sexual assault)
- Attempted rape
- Internet crimes (like possession of child pornography)
- Representation Before the Sex Offender Registry Board (SORB)
If you are faced with having to register — or potentially register — as a sex offender, you should know that you have the right to hire a criminal defense attorney. The process can be complicated. Working with a professional sex crimes defense lawyer who knows the process and procedure is the best way to protect your rights.
The process of evaluating a petitioner for SORB classification is somewhat similar to a math equation. The hearing officers are experts at interpreting the classification guidelines, taking a wide range of factors into account.
When you have a hearing, it is usually up to you to submit evidence in your favor. At the time of the hearing, every effort should be made to advocate for your position by providing the hearing officer with all the essential evidence, witnesses and documents that can persuade the board to your position.
William Barabino believes in thorough preparation before SORB hearings. Mr. Barabino organizes all evidence involved, including contacting witnesses, employment history, expert testimony and a full range of other information used to reduce or eliminate rating before the board.
