    It does appear that there must be more to the facts of your circumstance, as it doesn't make sense that MA would take a 1st ever OUI conviction and suspend your license for 10 years. I would suggest you obtain all the relevant court files/documents, including your complete MA Registry history to an experienced OUI lawyer so he/she can properly review everything to figure exactly what is going on and advise you accordingly.

    If an application for criminal complaint was dismissed, it means that no charges were brought against you and there should be no entry reflecting the issue on your criminal history. The clerk's office in the court should have a copy of the application and what occurred at the hearing, which should be reflected in the docket. You can go to the clerk's office and request a certified copy of the docket which hopefully notes that the charges were not issued and the application was dismissed....

    Given the seriousness of the allegations, e.g., rape, you would be well advised to speak with a lawyer to go over the exact details of what is going on and so that all your options are laid out for you. Additionally, where it appears that you could still be at risk for being charged with rape or some other sex crime, anything that you say could also be used against you if you are ever prosecuted. You should speak with a lawyer immediately who could advise you properly once he/she has...

    Sexual Assault charges are extremely serious charges, and a conviction could subject your son, not only to jail time, but also other collateral consequences, such as sex offender registration. If your son is overly concerned about his current attorney, he should immediately speak with a criminal lawyer who has experience in defending sex crimes charges.

    It's possible that you could still be charged criminally: if the store seeks a criminal complaint you could end up summonsed into court for a clerk's hearing. As the other answer suggested, you might just have to take the 'wait and see' approach...

    It sounds like you, as the driver, dodged a bullet in this case... The Massachusetts Open Container Law states that you can not have an open alcoholic drink inside the car, even if someone else is holding it. The law also provides that, for operators under 21, you can also be arrested and face a license suspension for 90 days, as well as face a fine between $100 - $500. It sounds like you were lucky that you weren't fined and/or arrested for this since you are 18.

    If the questions is whether you have ever pled "no contest", the answer is "yes". However, if the question is whether you have ever pled guilty or been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony, you can still answer "no". A Continuance Without a Finding (CWOF) is not technically a 'conviction' under Massachusetts law; nor does one 'plead guilty' when obtaining a CWOF. Rather, a CWOF is an 'admission to sufficient facts for a finding of guilty'. Technically, you are not admitting necessarily...

    Where the amount in question is greater than $250, the potential criminal charge that you could be subjected to, e.g., Larceny Over $250, is a felony, which carries up to 2.5 years in the House of Corrections. Where you have no criminal record, the chances of you actually being sent to jail, however, are minimal. One of the larger issues I believe you face, however, are the potential immigration consequences depending on how this matter is resolved. If you were to be found guilty or even...

    Generally the answer is no, as statements of another "for the truth of the matter" are hearsay. However, there are a number of exceptions to the rule, such as: statements made for purposes of identification; "spontaneous utterances"; and statements where the defendant has had a previous opportunity for cross-examination. Police reports by their nature contain witness statements, which are obviously 'hearsay'. Again, with some exceptions, statements contained in police reports cannot be...
