  • Shoplifting Charge Against Non-Citizen Dismissed on Court Costs

    Our client is a non-citizen who would be subject to deportation had this case not been dismissed. Several months ago she was caught shoplifting from a local clothing store.

She was charged with shoplifting, a violation of G.L. c .266 section 30A. This was a rather generous charge given her history at the store. Today.

  • Drug Charges and Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle Against Nurse Dismissed

    In March of 2023, our client, a nurse, was pulled over for erratic driving. According to the police report, our client was angry about being stopped. She became belligerent and confrontational to the officers. As a result she was asked to exit the car. She became even more agitated and began using profane language towards the officers. Believing she might be impaired the officers conducted a pat frisk and found drugs in  her possession. Specifically, class B drugs and Class C drugs. She was arrested and charged with illegal possession of drugs under G.L. c. 94C section 34 and negligent operation of a motor vehicle under G.L. c. 90 section 24. Our office was retained to represent the woman. Today, based on constitutional violations and an inability to properly prosecute these crimes was succeeded in getting these charges dismissed.

  • Two Cases Charging Open and Gross Lewdness Continued Without a Finding

    In April and May of 2023 our client was arrested and charged with open and gross lewdness, a felony in Massachusetts governed by G.L. c. 272 section 16. The allegations in both cases are very similar. In the first case, our client was driving through suburban Boston city street. He pulled up to a stop sign and got the attention of a young woman. When she approached his car she noticed that he had no pants on, his penis was exposed and erect. As to the second case, the victim reported that our client engaged in similar conduct however this time he was manipulating his erect penis. The cases were joined for pretrial purposes. We had our client meet with a forensic psychologist, something that we often recommend in cases like this one. The doctor identified triggers for our client prompting this type of behavior. Moreover, with therapy and abstention from the substances that cause this behavior the doctor believed that this would not happen again. Consequently, the judge agreed to continue these matters without a finding (CWOF). Provided our client remains free from criminal legal problems the case will be dismissed.
