Massachusetts mother faces criminal charges after fatal accident

A Massachusetts mother charged in a car accident that killed her son has been charged with reckless endangerment of a child and motor vehicle manslaughter. The woman will now face several additional criminal charges. Authorities say the accident killed her 3-year-old son and injured two more of her children when she crashed into parked cars after speeding away from the scene of a hit and run accident. The children, ages seven, five, and three were apparently not properly restrained which could result in further criminal charges. Her fourth child was not in the vehicle at the time of the accident.

Man faces Massachusetts criminal charges for child exploitation

Recently, a Massachusetts man was accused of committing sexual exploitation of a child in connection with purportedly inducing the child to producing pornography. The 51-year-old man was accused of these federal criminal charges after authorities accused him of engaging in an inappropriate online relationship with a child, although no details were released regarding the child's age or gender. Reports indicate that the man came into contact with the child on a website, but then exchanged email addresses with the child.

Massachusetts man facing assault and battery charges

Whenever alcohol is involved in an alleged assault and battery, it can make it even more difficult for the police to discover the truth of an incident. This may be the case for Massachusetts police officers who are investigating an assault and battery that purportedly occurred during a domestic dispute. A potentially problematic factor in this case is that the victim appeared visibly intoxicated at the time police responded to the altercation. Police indicated that this made their fact-gathering duties more troublesome.

Man facing 5th set of Massachusetts drunk driving charges

Massachusetts, like many other states across the nation, takes accusations of drunk driving very seriously. The penalties for violating Massachusetts drunk driving laws can lead to harsh penalties in the event of a conviction. Someone who has been convicted of multiple instances of drunk driving in the past may face an uphill legal battle if accused of a new OUI offense. This could mean that they need to fully understand the charges and potential penalties they face.
