Law Office of Matthew Peterson Secures Probation for Client Charged with Rape and Sodomy

boston ma criminal sodomy rape attorney defense lawyer

    In October 2018, the Law Office of Matthew Peterson, a criminal defense and sexual offense lawyer, recently secured probation for a client charged with a serious sexual offenses against a child.  Not only that, but the client did not have to register as a sex offender.  If convicted, our client was facing life in prison.

    When a client is charged with a sexual offense, they can be some of the most difficult cases because of the stakes.  There is likely very little physical evidence, the jury must decide whose word to believe, and the stakes are high – the punishment can be very serious if convicted.

   Our client was charged with serious sexual offenses involving his daughter when she was younger.  The incidents allegedly happened decades prior to this.  He vehemently denied these accusations.

   We investigated the case, interviewing potential witnesses, researching social media of the victim and other potential witnesses, and preparing extensively for trial.  On the day of trial, the prosecution offered us the deal of a lifetime – they would reduce the offense to a non-sexual offense and give our client probation.

   Even though our client denied the charges, he decided to take a best interest plea based on the stakes.  He was sentenced to probation and did not have to register as a sex offender.
