Massachusetts Sex Crimes/Child Pornography Lawyer

Sexual Assault

Sex offenses are very serious crimes, and they are treated as such by prosecutors, courts and the public in Massachusetts. Individuals convicted of rape, indecent assault and battery, or any type of sexual assault, typically face prison sentences followed by strict probationary terms, as well as the tremendous stigma that may come with the requirements of sex offender registration.

Given the emotion that surrounds these types of cases and the community's desire to eliminate sex offending behavior from society, state and federal prosecutors push hard to get convictions. In some cases, all it takes is an accusation, without any corroborating evidence, to initiate sex crime charges. Facing an allegation of sexual assault is terrifying and frustrating, and the outcome will likely change your life as you know it.

Hiring a skilled attorney early in the process is important. Some investigations initiated by the government should not result in criminal charges, and the involvement early on of an experienced attorney - one who knows your opponent - could make all the difference. Having investigated sex crimes and made charging decisions as a prosecutor, attorney Kate Frame knows what factors will play in the prosecutor's discretionary decision as to whether to charge a case and what charges to bring. In some cases the goal of avoiding indictment altogether is possible.

In the event an indictment is returned, Kate Frame has the trial experience to mount a skilled and forceful defense to the government's case. Attorney Kate Frame is experienced and skilled with:

  • The use of expert witnesses in sexual assault cases
  • Direct and cross examination of both child and adult witnesses
  • Evidentiary and procedural rules that are unique to sexual assault cases
  • Finding the weaknesses in the government's case

Kate Frame has the specialized legal knowledge, investigative skills and courtroom savvy to represent you in this grave matter. She will advocate on your behalf to obtain the best outcome possible and, where possible, to prove your innocence so that you can move forward with your hard-earned reputation intact. There are typically a number of defenses available to a person charged with sexual assault, and attorney Frame will explore all of them.

Child Pornography

Child pornography cases can be complex. They are often brought in federal court where there is a different set of rules and procedures. The law that applies to government searches of computers is ever-evolving and challenging. Having litigated numerous child pornography cases and having practiced in federal courts, Kate Frame has the experience to provide high-quality legal representation in this type of case.

If you have been convicted of a child pornography-related offense, you will face registration and classification by the Sex Offender Registry Board. The regulations, factors and research apply differently to those who have been convicted of a child pornography offense as opposed to an offense involving a sexual assault. Having served as a Board Member for seven years, Kate Frame can provide unmatched guidance and consultation as you go through the Sex Offender Registry Board process.
