Commonwealth v. A Juvenile, Worcester County, Statutory Rape, A&B on Child Under 14
In what is becoming more and more common a circumstance these days, the Juvenile, 14, had gone to a drive-in movie with fellow classmate, who was 13 at the time. Sitting in the car alone, the two of them 'experimented' with some light touching.
When the girl went to school the following week, she told her friends that the boy had touched her breasts, as well as her vagina - and that she believed that he penetrated her slightly.
Word got around at school...school counselors and eventually the principal got wind of what had allegedly occurred, and eventually the police were called. The girl now suddenly claimed that she was sexually assaulted and digitally raped.
Weighing whether to fight these accusations and risk a Massachusetts Sex Crimes conviction, a plea deal was negotiated where the Felony Sex Crimes Charges of Statutory Rape and Indecent Assault & Battery on a Child Under 14 were dropped, and the Juvenile pled to two misdemeanor offenses of simple Assault & Battery.
...the client escaped possible Sex Offender Registration for life.
Given the life-altering and realistic possibility of having the label of Sex Offender follow this young man around for the rest of his life, as well as the possibility of being committed to the Department of Youth Services, the client escaped relatively unscathed, with only a term of probation and community service.
