Sex Crimes Massachusetts Quincy Lawyer Injunction Gen Laws 6 178C

James v Commonwealth

Facts:

Plaintiff moved for a preliminary injunction to bar defendants from enforcing against him the Sex Offender Registration and Community Notification Act, Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 6, § 178C-178O. The court found that plaintiff was not convicted of a like violation of the laws of another state because an admission of battery, which was a necessary element of the crime of indecent assault and battery in Massachusetts, was not necessary to find plaintiff guilty of indecent assault in Florida. Thus, he had no obligation to register for his crimes a sex offender.
