Woburn District Court: Six Counts of Forgery of a Document Against Business Man Dismissed
The defendant is a man of Asian descent who speaks very little English. He is a businessman living in New York and has a green card. The prosecution alleged that in November of 2013 he was involved in an elaborate scheme to defraud banks and individuals by using credit cards with information that had been altered. The defendant was observed by loss prevention personnel making purchases with several of these altered cards. The police were called to the store and the defendant was detained and questioned along with someone believed to be working in connection with him. Surveillance cameras caught the defendant making these purchases thereby corroborating the district attorney's case. Among other things, the defendant was charged with six counts of forgery of a document, a felony in Massachusetts. The charges were serious permitting a judge to sentence someone convicted of the crime to up to ten years in prison. Today, Attorney Neyman was able to get all of these charges dismissed.
