Concord is a relatively small town, with an estimated population of 17,580 in 2009. But for students of American literature or American history, it’s a must. Concord and neighboring Lexington hosted the first battle of the Revolutionary War, repulsing British soldiers who sought to capture arms stored there. In the nineteenth century, Concord became the home of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Louisa May Alcott and Nathaniel Hawthorne, all of whom were contemporaries in the same social circle. The Concord grape was also developed in and named after the town. Concord has its own district court, at 305 Walden Street, serving a total of eight towns in Middlesex County.Are Drug Cases Prosecuted in the Concord, Massachusetts District Court?
Yes they are. Notwithstanding the bucolic upper class reputation of this town there are an abundance of drug cases that filter through this court. The most common scenario involves the routine stop of a motor vehicle. Route 2 in Concord links suburban Boston to the western part of Massachusetts. Each day thousands of cars travel this road from Boston and its neighboring cities and towns to the Berkshires and Vermont. Many of them made the trip to purchase drugs in narcotics saturated cities. State troopers purporting to enforce local traffic laws regularly stop many of these motor vehicles. Oftentimes however they are doing more. They are profiling cars or people they believe to be somehow involved with drugs. The stop is a pretext used to search the vehicle. During many of these searches drugs are found and a case gets filed in the Concord Court. A decent portion of each day’s case docket in Concord is devoted to prosecuting drug cases.Hire a Lawyer Who Has Successfully Defended Criminal Cases in Concord, Massachusetts
