Pittsfield — On Tuesday, July 19, a jury in Central Berkshire District Court found 36-year-old Joseph Lamb guilty of a count of indecent assault and battery on a person over the age of 14.
Judge Jennifer Tyne Lamb is scheduled to sentence Lamb on Wednesday, July 20.
In the press release Berkshire District Attorney’s office Director of Communications Andrew McKeever wrote that the Lee Police Department and the Berkshire District Attorney’s Office received two Disabled Persons Protection Commission reports after the victim disclosed that her bus driver inappropriately touched her in early 2020.
“Police obtained surveillance footage from the bus company tasked with transporting the disabled woman to and from work, showing that he inappropriately touched her,” McKeever wrote. “At the trial, the defense counsel argued that the interaction was consensual. The Berkshire District Attorney’s Office proved that the defendant took advantage of the victim’s intellectual disabilities and that the victim was incapable of providing consent.”
