RAPE


 

Rape in Massachusetts requires the Commonwealth to prove that the defendant had sexual intercourse either natural or unnatural intercourse with the victim. This requires proof that the male penis either penetrated the vagina or touched the labia, the outside portion of the vagina. Unnatural intercourse covers any touching with the penis, mouth or fingers of another’s genital’s, mouth or anus. Rape requires the above touching to be done by force or threat of force. Physical force is not necessary, at times it can be shown that a victim lacked the capacity to consent, such as a date rape where the victim may be passed out. Date rape is a common charge in Boston and surrounding towns these charges are seen at the many college and university campuses in Massachusetts.

 

Rape charges in Massachusetts require a criminal attorney with experience in these types of cases. The majority of rape cases are swearing contests between the victim and the accused. The difference between a conviction and an acquittal depends on who the jury believes. A lot of times it is not the fact that sex took place but whether it was consensual or not and the majority of cases do not involve force or injury to the victim. It is a case of “he said she said” with a defendant’s life hanging in the balance.

 

We are a Boston criminal defense firm that works with private investigators who look into the story told by a victim as well as any and all motives or biases a person may have in wanting to lie and accuse somebody falsely. We work with expert witnesses who testify as to how common false complaints are made and the reasons why a person would accuse another falsely of rape. Rape charges easily inflame a jury against a defendant, a jury wants to believe a crying victim over a defendant, you need a Boston criminal attorney who knows how to educate a jury as to why a person would make up such a charge and hold the jury to the high burden of proof required to convict someone of such a serious offense. We are a Boston criminal defense firm that can represent you at the earliest stages of an investigation giving you the best chance to investigate and beat rape charges.

I am happy that I chose Frank to be my lawyer, and I will choose him again in the future. Although we agreed that I will pay him more money if my case went to trial, but he did his best to get my case dropped, and in fact the case was dismissed, and I didnt have to go through a trial or pay him extra money. He did all the work and all i had to do was showing up in court, I didnt need to speak a word. Very impressing, Frank is someone you can trust, and I respect him and his work

Very honest. Accepted my case while I was in NYC. Explained to me exactly what will happen at minimum cost. First time I can say I met an honest attorney. As a business and real estate in NYC, I retained many attorneys whose goal was to maximize their fees. Mr Fernandez was very reasonable and upfront honest with his fee. Very highly reccomend.

Frank Fernandez should be the first call anyone makes within the Boston area for legal representation. As a working professional, I made a horrible mistake and I was arrested with the potential of spending a lot of time in jail with the potential to have charges escalated. His efforts saved me a lot of potential pain and grief. He came to my rescue when I had no family locally to help me out of the situation my actions caused.I was fortunate that I found him out of the chaotic choices that are out there. Frank is professional and cares about all of the elements which affected the outcome of my case. My life and my career are back on track and I could not have done this without Frank's ability to react and change the course of difficult decisions. Trust, integrity, honesty, alongside the ability to dig deep, are just some of the characteristics of the person who accepted my case in the middle of the night.If you need a sanctuary when you can only see your life taking a change for the worse, call Frank and explain the elements of your case. I've got his card in my car, my wallet, my desk when I've got the potential for any type of legal action. I know he's someone that I can depend upon.I'm not posting for sake of Frank's business, I'm posting to convey my thanks for a difficult set of circumstances that I'll not face due to his ability to think quickly and make reliable decisions in spite of the issues that resulted from my actions.
