  • Alcohol charges dismissed and probation surrender proceedings terminated against Marlborough man

    Marlborough District Court Docket Numbers: 99-1043 and 98-2013. In 1998 the defendant was charged with two counts of distributing marijuana. The case was continued without a finding requiring the defendant to remain free from trouble for eighteen months. The judge imposed an alternative sentence of at least 6 months in jail and up to 18 months in jail if the defendant violated the terms of his probation. The defendant did in fact violate probation by failing to complete a program, paying the fines that were imposed and by failing to report to his probation officer. He also picked up a new case, being a minor in possession of alcohol. The defendant remained in default for nearly 10 years. He surrendered himself and retained our office to defend the criminal accusations he faced. Attorney Neyman succeeded in getting the probation officer to agree to terminate probation provided the defendant pay the outstanding fines. We also succeeded in getting the alcohol charges dismissed outright.

Upon their arrival they spoke with a neighbor who reported that he heard loud noises as if people were wrestling. They were also yelling and screaming. Officers then entered the defendant's home. They observed furniture overturned and personal items appearing to have been thrown around the home. The victim was interviewed in a room separate and apart from the defendant. She reported that our client struck her in the face with a closed fist. The police observed marks consistent with the woman's representations. Attorney Neyman succeeded in getting pre-trial probation for our client pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 276 Section 87. Provided he remains free from criminal problems the case will be dismissed. If our client does not successfully complete his probationary period the prosecution can do no more than reinstate the charges against the defendant and he will be able to fight the case.
