    Our client is a local marketing executive at a downtown Boston firm. The prosecution alleged that in November of 2015, desperate for money the client stole her roommates' mother's identity to obtain credit for purchasing a car.

  • Pretrial Probation Imposed for Woman Accused of Criminal Harassment , Identity Fraud and Violating a Harassment Prevention Order

    Wrentham District Court: After nearly a two year investigation members of the Medway, Massachusetts Police Department determined that the defendant, wife of the victim's former husband had been engaging in a pattern of conduct designed to harass. The police forensic investigation led to the execution of a Search Warrant at the defendant's home from which all electronic devices capable of sending communications were seized. Officers and the prosecution concluded that our client had systematically sent hundreds of harassing emails to the victim over the course of the two years sufficient to warrant the issuance of a Harassment Prevention Order. Simultaneously, the defendant was alleged assuming the victim's identity to further the harassment efforts. Notwithstanding the issuance of the Harassment Prevention Order the abuse continued and our client was charged. After nearly eighteen months of litigation Attorney Neyman secured pretrial probation for the defendant. She will have no criminal record.
