Our Boston, MA criminal law lawyer specialists also work hard to make sure that our clients receive the non-legal support that they need during this stressful time.

Our Massachusetts criminal defense attorney specialists know your rights, as well as all of the nuances of Massachusetts criminal procedures, and will work tirelessly to protect those rights. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has created laws which protect every individual’s rights, including those who have been accused of committing a Massachusetts crime. Some of these rights include the right to remain silent, the right to be informed of the Massachusetts criminal charges against you, the right to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures, the right to refuse to answer on an acquittal, the right to be free from punishment without a conviction, the right to a medical examination and the right to counsel.

Prior to the custodial interrogation of a Massachusetts criminal violation suspect, the police are required to read the individual his or her Miranda rights. If the police fail to read a suspect his or her Miranda rights, the statements that the individual made during the interrogation may be inadmissible as evidence. Any additional information that would have remained undiscovered may also be inadmissible. Inadequate evidence often leads to a dismissal of the pending Massachusetts criminal charges.

The police are typically permitted to search a Massachusetts resident’s home, car, property or financial records when a Massachusetts judge has found that there is probable cause. A Massachusetts judge will make a finding of probable cause when the judge believes that performing a search will likely yield evidence of a Massachusetts crime. There are also very limited circumstances that allow for a Massachusetts police officer to search a home without a search warrant, the most typical of which is if the individual voluntarily allows a search or invites a Massachusetts police officer into the home. Many Massachusetts residents are unaware that they have right to refuse a search. It is not uncommon to have concerns as to whether a search of one’s property was unreasonable.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has created time periods that define how long a criminal case can remain pending in court. Disposition is not allowed to exceed five months for Massachusetts criminal offenses that have a maximum period of incarceration of six months and those that do not require incarceration and are punishable by fine only. Disposition is not allowed to exceed twelve months for Massachusetts criminal offenses that carry a jail sentence of more than six months.

In all Massachusetts criminal cases, the defendant is entitled to a trial by a Massachusetts jury. There is no right to a trial by jury, however, if the individual has been charged with a petty offense, namely a crime that carries with it a jail sentence of six months or less. Minors are generally tried in Massachusetts juvenile court, with the exception of serious Massachusetts criminal offenses, such as murder. Massachusetts juvenile court does not allow for trial by jury.

The two Massachusetts courts that can hear Massachusetts criminal cases are the Massachusetts District Court and the Massachusetts Superior Court. The majority of criminal cases that are prosecuted in Massachusetts are brought in the District Court, which has authority over most Massachusetts criminal cases. In general, Massachusetts District Court judges have the power to sentence a defendant to a maximum of two and one half years on each criminal charge. Many of these cases involve Massachusetts misdemeanors, namely crimes that are punishable by a jail term of less than one year. Massachusetts Superior Court judges generally preside over more serious crimes, such as those which require sentencing of more than two and one half years on each criminal charge. Many of these cases involve felonies, which are crimes that are punishable by a jail term of at least one year.
