Massachusetts Suppression Hearing - MA Motion to Suppress
A suppression hearing is an opportunity for you attorney to file a motion to suppress, if he or she feels your rights have been violated, and the evidence against you should be suppressed. There are a variety of legal grounds on which to file such a motion. The police are often guilty of illegal search and seizure, so it’s often possible to get a case dismissed without ever taking it to trial. It’s even a good idea to file a motion to suppress even when there is little chance of winning, since helpful information may come out during the hearing that can strengthen your case at trial.
