Penalties for criminal offenses in Massachusetts vary widely according to the nature of the charges, prior offenses, and a host of other factors. I’ve listed the maximum penalties for many different charges here on my site, but a good criminal defense attorney should always be able to minimize the penalties if you choose to work out a deal and plead guilty.
There is also always an opportunity to beat the charges in court. Being arrested is still a long way from being convicted. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts must prove their charges beyond a reasonable doubt, and it’s your attorney’s job to raise that reasonable doubt at trial.
Police make mistakes all the time in arresting people. We can challenge the probable cause of the arrest in the first place. If your constitutional rights have been violated we can get evidence and charges suppressed and thrown out. Or if the evidence is weak or circumstantial, we can beat it at trial. There are countless possibilities to extensive to describe here.
I am in different courts across the state every day, defending my clients rights and freedom on many different criminal charges. If you’ve been arrested and are facing criminal charges in Massachusetts, please call me to find out what I can do to help. By calling, you have nothing to lose.
