Commonwealth v. LaPointe

Case Year: 
2001
State of Origin: 
Massachusetts

Conditions of probation imposed on a criminal defendant convicted of indecent assault and battery on a person who had attained the age of fourteen years, which conditions prohibited the defendant from residing with minor children, were reasonably related to his offense and to the goals of sentencing and probation, and were therefore valid; the residency restrictions did not deprive the defendant of any "parenting right," nor did they impermissibly infringe on his right to marry or to procreate in the future.
