Sex Crimes


Some of the most damaging crimes one can be charged with involve sex. These charges can be brought without any physical evidence, amounting to one person’s word that the accused is guilty.

Even if the accused is later cleared of all criminal charges, they may face the continued social stigma for their perceived crime. For these reasons, it is imperative for a person charged with a sex crime to retain an experienced sex crime defense lawyer in Boston to protect them from unfounded charges.

The term “sex crime” includes all types of criminal violations involving sexual activity, abuse, exploitation, or actions taken for sexual gratification. The experienced defense attorneys at Dhar Law, LLP represent clients who face a wide range of sex crime charges.

We defend clients against all charges, including:

  • Rape and sexual assault — Rape involves nonconsensual sexual intercourse by force, threat, or from the inability to consent. For cases involving indecent assault that does not include allegations of intercourse, the crime can be charged as indecent assault.
  • Statutory rape – Statutory rape involves sexual intercourse with a person who is under the age of 16. It does not matter whether either party involved thought the sex was consensual.
  • Solicitation for sex — Massachusetts law states that it is illegal to request or agree to have someone perform a sexual act in exchange for money. The actual sexual act does not have to be performed to commit the crime of solicitation.
  • Lewdness and indecent exposure — Conviction of these crimes can negatively affect your current job or future employment opportunities.


At Dhar Law, LLP, we have a committed team of lawyers with decades of experience defending clients charged with a wide variety of sex crimes. If you or a loved one faces a charge of rape, solicitation, sexual assault, or any other sex offense, don’t take chances on your future.
