Keegan Law: Molestation Attorneys in Boston
Child Molestation in State Law
Sexual molestation is a crime that often goes unreported or overlooked, usually because the victim is afraid of being a subject of shame, humiliation or retaliation at the hands of the offender. However, false accusations of molestation are quite common, as well. A person is molested when they are touched in a sexual or improper manner by another person without consent. In the Massachusetts General Laws (2011), child molestation is described in §265-13B using the term “indecent assault and battery on a child under the age of 14.” Upon conviction of such a crime, a person could face up to 10 years in prison, or a maximum of 2.5 years in jail.
Reasons for False Charges of Molestation
There are many different reasons why a person might accuse someone of molesting them. Children have made false accusations out of hate or fear. Bitter ex-spouses make such allegations out of spite. Fearful individuals jump to conclusions and accuse the wrong person without proper evidence.
