10 years ago was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and I just picked up another fire arm case can they use the 10 year old cause against me?
Criminal charges will stay on your CORI record unless they are expunged (an extremely difficult process in Massachusetts). As to whether that assault charge will be held against you in some manner, that is really a question for your defense attorney and will depending on the circumstances of the case and the type of offense you are charged with.
