Our client is a local marketing executive at a downtown Boston firm.

An elaborate plan was devised in which all debt incurred by our client was attributed to the victim. The victim had no knowledge of the plan as her bills were diverted to our client's address. When the plot unraveled the defendant was caught and charged with identity fraud on violation of G.L. c. 266 Section 37E. Attorney Neyman was hired and able to get pretrial probation pursuant to G.L. c. 276 Section 87. All charges will be dismissed in one year.

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.
