Unjust conviction overturned; case dismissed

May 2019

May 7, 2019, Malden District Court case no. 0850CR000637, charging 3 counts assault dangerous weapon, failure to stop for police, driving to endanger. Government alleges that when officers attempted to stop client in connection with a suspected drug transaction, client attempts to run down the officers with his car. On advice of predecessor counsel, client admits to sufficient facts and is placed on probation on 12/18/08. Client retains our firm after learning his convictions trigger deportation consequences.
