Evidence excluded as a result of prosecutorial non-disclosure
October 11, 2018, Lawrence District Court case no. 1618CR005211, charging possession with intent to distribute heroin and cocaine. After witnessing suspected drug transaction involving two bags of cocaine, Andover police seize 10 bags of heroin from client. We appear for trial on 10/11/18. Following prosecutorial non-disclosure of evidence and failure to comply with discovery orders, the Court allows our motion to close all discovery, depriving the prosecutor of the opportunity to introduce necessary evidence against our client. All charges dismissed.
