No Complaint Issued at Clerk Magistrates Hearing for Trespassing
Our client received a Summons for a Clerk Magistrate's Hearing in Massachusetts for Trespassing, which is a criminal offense under Massachusetts General Laws c 266 § 120. After an in depth discussion with our client, we performed our own investigation into the matter and obtained documents to build our defense strategy.
We presented our argument to not issue the complaint based on confusion with the trespassing notice that was provided to our client and the facts and circumstances of our client's life.
As a result of our argument, the Clerk Magistrate did not issue the complaint and our client avoided having a criminal record.
