Extractions: Court Rules How to Get There Massachusetts Law Massachusetts Jury Instructions ... Other Massachusetts Court Resources Court Rules Massachusetts has rules of court that apply throughout the state, including Rules of Civil Procedure, Criminal Procedure, and Appellate Procedure. (There is no codified set of Rules of Evidence in Massachusetts.) In addition, there are separate procedural rules for the Supreme Judicial Court and the Appeals Court and for each department of the Trial Court (including the Superior Court, Housing Court, Juvenile Court, Land Court, Probate and Family Court, the District Courts and Boston Municipal Court). Attorneys who practice before those courts must follow these rules in addition to the Rules of Civil, Criminal, or Appellate Procedure. These rules of individual courts often address procedural issues such as filing deadlines, guidelines for pleadings and memoranda submitted to that court, even rules about whether one can cite unpublished opinions in documents submitted to that court. These rules may include forms to be used in practice before that court. The library's guide on Massachusetts legal research provides more complete information about resources for Court Rules for state and federal courts in Massachusetts.
Extractions: A survey of statutes on custodial sexual contact Incarcerated women in U.S. prisons often suffer punishment far in excess of their state imposed sentence. At the hands of correctional officers they face widespread sexual abuse ranging from unauthorized body frisks to rape. Thirteen states offer no legal protections for women against sexual molestation and abuse: The following states have no law: Alabama; Kentucky; Minnesota; Oregon; Utah; Vermont; Wisconsin The following states have enacted laws since March 4, 1999 Massachusetts; Montana; Nebraska; Virginia; Washington; West Virginia NOTE : Amnesty International - USA believes that the West Virginia legislation is inadequate to protect women incarcerated in that state, and an action will be initiated shortly) In the vast majority of U.S. states and the Federal government, laws apply that recognize the potential for abusive relationships between female inmates and correctional authorities and have criminalized custodial sexual contact. Despite laws on the books, enforcement is often sporadic or non-existent. Nationwide, rape and sexual abuse of incarcerated women is so widespread that inmates often consider it a customary aspect of the prison experience. The recent explosion in the number of women incarcerated exacerbates the problem, increasing instances of physical and emotional violation. Alaska

The temptation could be stronger when it keeps on coming with 'authentic' documents. The whole thing is like someone trying to harvest where he does not sow.

Extractions: The Sensibilities of Our Forefathers The History of Sodomy Laws in the United States By George Painter New Hampshire "[A] 12-year-old boy...was being examined as a "sexual psychopath" because he and a 9-year-old boy compared the length of their genitalia[.]" The Colonial Period, 1607-1776 New Hampshire was settled in 1623 and, for more than a half century, juridically was part of Massachusetts. The laws of England may have been considered in force, but an early case casts some doubt on that. In 1635, two men were arrested for committing sodomy with each other "on the Lords day in time of public exercise," but they were not prosecuted because the government officials "did not think fit to try them here." Massachusetts enacted its first sodomy law in 1636 (q.v.) and it therefore had applicability to the area now known as New Hampshire. As a result, the next legal proceeding for sodomitical acts was dealt with harshly. In 1663, a woman was accused of having claimed falsely that her husband, Matthew Giles, buggered her "servant boy," William Penney. Penney testified that Mrs. Giles "hired him" to lie to investigators about the alleged incident. Each was sentenced to a flogging, and Mrs. Giles also was given an indefinite term in prison.

Extractions: Draft In what follows I will trace these developments and discuss their causes. I will not discuss the entire body of criminal law in each colony, but only the major crimes against the person, against property, and against religion and morals. Other categories of crime, such as contempts of authority, offenses against public order, and currency offenses either tend to be too idiosyncratic in their definition and punishment for comparison to be useful, or raise issues which would inconveniently broaden the scope of this paper. Early Pennsylvania legislation can best be understood by considering the legislators. Both William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania, and most of the early colonists were Quakers, and therefore it is to be expected that Quaker beliefs would have a profound effect on all the institutions of early Pennsylvania, including criminal law. Penn's purpose in founding the colony was to establish a commonwealth founded on Quaker principles which would provide a refuge where his co-religionists would be free to live in accordance with their beliefs. As one would expect of a person so closely connected with the most powerful men in England, and yet so deeply at odds with the predominant political, social, and moral attitudes of the day, Penn had devoted a great deal of thought to politics and political reform.
