Boston Internet Sex Crimes Lawyer
The emergence of the Internet has created a new and unlikely breed of alleged sex offenders. In the past, without Internet access it was extremely difficult to obtain child pornography. Now, these images come right to people’s computers without anyone having to leave the house. But the police and undercover investigators are online too and aggressively prosecuting actions that may not have been obviously criminal. Federal and state authorities now frequently rely upon Internet “stings” to initiate criminal actions.

The Sex Offender Registry Board (SORB)
Post conviction, all individuals convicted of sex-related Internet crimes must stand before the Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Board. When you face this Board, you will be assessed with a number (Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3) based upon the Board’s decision as to what danger you pose to the public as a sex offender, and your likelihood of committing another sex offense in the future. If the Board determines that you are a Level 3 sex offender, your name, address and sex offense information will be posted on the Internet and available to everyone you know, making it nearly impossible to live a normal life again.
Kate Frame spent eight years working on the Board that will determine your ongoing status as a sex offender. She understands the statute and regulations, as well as the many Massachusetts Appeals Court and Supreme Judicial Court decisions interpreting the Sex Offender Law and regulations. She also had an inside knowledge of the people and processes that make up the Board, what they are looking for, and how they make these very important decisions. Very few Boston lawyers possess this kind of experience.
