  • My son was just arrested for heroin (enough to place him in the trafficking category). What options does he have?

    He is a non-violent person, but suffers from an extreme addiction to opiates. He has been in and out of the "system" for 10yrs. I strongly believe that addicts and alcoholics do not belong in the punitive system (unless violent and dangerous). ...

    I am really sorry to hear your situation. All too often, people who care about the addict seem to suffer the most. Although I agree with you that addicts generally do not belong in the punitive system, unfortunately, due to our now-decades old 'war on drugs,' our legal system is designed to punish even the users. Not knowing all of the facts in your son's specific case, it is difficult to answer your question. Certainly, if the facts support it, even without direct evidence of distribution or trafficking, based on the weight alone, it is not uncommon for prosecutors to pursue a conviction of those charges. If convicted, your son could be facing a significant state prison time. I would urge you to contact an attorney experienced in these cases. Providing the attorney with verifiable information about your son's drug use history might prove helpful in resolving the case in a manner that will get your son the treatment that he needs and avoid a long prison sentence.

    Wishing you the best,

  • I refused a chemical breath test for the state of Massachusetts, but in court plead guilty with a cwof.

    I was told in court that i would lose my license for 45 days. However I received paperwork in the mail saying suspension for 180 days for refusing the breathalyzer. I was wondering if it would just be 45 days due to the fact that I plead guilty ...

    Myong’s Answer

    You are correct. The 180 days loss of license for refusing the breatherlyzer test ends on the date the court accepts your plea tender on the 24D disposition and the 45 loss of license kicks in. You are eligible for a hardship license after three days of your plea with proof of enrollment in an alcohol program and need to drive for work.

    Myong’s Answer

    Yes, every police department would apply for an application for criminal complaint. You can expect that your ex will be charged. At some point, his attorney will get in touch with you. Let his attorney know how you feel about the prosecution of the case. The attorney will know what to do. Good luck.

  • I was charged with misdormeanor larceny of $149. What will the outcome be in court, im 27?

    Im 27. I was charged with misdormeanor larceny of $149. i asked the pd. They said the outcome is nothing to lose sleep over.

    Myong’s Answer

    Attorney Broadbent is correct: it depends on many factors - info we don't have. Your court-appointed attorney is in the best position to advise you at this point since s/he presumably has the info needed. Assuming you have no prior record, s/he is probably correct that it is nothing to lose sleep over.

    Absolutely, he needs a lawyer. If he cannot afford to hire one, the court will appoint a lawyer for his defense. These are very serious charges.
