  • Testimony of FL shooting out in Hernandez trial

    Wednesday Mar 4 | via WLNE-TV Providence 

    Aaron Hernandez is being sued by his long time pal Alexander Bradley for allegedly shooting him in the face in February 2013. On Wednesday the State argued that Bradley should be allowed to testify in the former Patriot's murder case because the defense 'opened the door' for motive: "The defendant has previously had a similar relationship under similar circumstances in terms of even some small disagreement with somebody who was described as a very good friend of the defendants and then that he would respond in that way," said prosecutor William McCauley.

Canton Law

My question has to do with a friends OUI... Police and Prosecutor are stating 3rd offence but driving record would show 1st
First time with the law and oui was 1978.. 18 years old Case Disp.. Dissmissed.. 2nd time 1996 Disp.. (NP) never persued by prosecution.. Looking at driving record since 1990 there is no driving infractions, no OUI's nothing.. Now friend is a CDL driver, No driving infractions on his recoord, no licence suspensions , No OUI convictions, NOTHING... Why would the police put this in the Newspaper as a third offence OUI and systematicly destroy this persons life, livlihood and reputation.. I was in court the day at arraignment and Judge questioned young prosecuter why she was bringing something up and making a big deal about something from 1978 36 years ago when the Defendant was 18 years old??? This case involved no accident, no speeding, No open container... The worst my friend refused BT..
As far as the third offense is concerned, it's (unfortunately) common for police and inexperienced prosecutors to...
Can a person's p.o. give them a pass on a day's alcohol screens if they absolutely have to be at work?
I have never missed a screen in 10 months but need to go to company training program for 2 days. I desperately need this training or I could lose job? I have no criminal record.
I already answered this question yesterday. Call your P.O.

I was charged with a dui 7 months ago in CA on vacation. I hired an attorney in CA but want to know if I need a MA One. Also, is my license suspended before the final arraingment or the day of arrest?
Sounds like you need to hire a lawyer in California, the state where you are charged. They will be licensed to practice...
Massachusetts CWOF Dismissed OUI / Entry into Canada
OUI case is a CWOF (Continuation without a finding) in Massachusetts. Case will be dismissed pending completion of probation June 2015. Plan on trip to Vancouver for a Cruise in August 2016. I have heard mixed opinions on this site, and elsewhere regarding crossing the Canadian Border under these circumstances. 1) Since the case will have been dismissed by then, a letter from a lawyer or paperwork from the court stating that the case is dismissed will suffice. 2) Will need a Temporary Resident Permit. 3) Will need a full Canadian Criminal Rehabilitation. 4) None of these options above will work. Looking for advice on next steps. And if the suggestion is to talk to a Canadian Immigration Lawyer, then a referral to a good Canadian Immigration Lawyer. Thank You!
AVVO doesn't let us solicit or refer, you need to secure an attorney on your own. As to your issue, CWOFS are...
How long does the state have to prosecute you before they have to drop charges
I have a OUI #2 and its been 4 years and I have been out on $2500 bail showing up for court every date on time then a few weeks ago I was arrested on a warrant cause apparently I was supposed to goto court. last time I went they said the victim/witness was gonna be outa the country for 9 months and we might have a earlier date to discus a plea which I never could get ahold of my lawyer to find out when. its dragging on and every time I show up ether we are not ready or the D.A. isn't ready. When I say we I mean my lawyer who is paid for by the state. So now that I just spent a week in jail again cause of "there" lawyer I finally got a new one who seems pretty good if she sticks around. How many times can this happen?
If you have a new lawyer, I think you are best advised to speak to her. I appreciate that you are trying to tell us...
If I got an oui drugs and my license gets suspended before I go to trial, can my fiancé still drive the car registered to me?

I don't go to court until 3/30/15. My fiances car is in my name, can she get in trouble? What should I do? I passed field sobriety test but he still booked me on oui drugs
The restriction is on you driving, not her. If you really want to be safe, transfer HER car back to HER name. You...
Can I take an online 24D class for Mass, or take it in CT?
First offense, no priors. Clean driving record. Have to move for a job in a week & travel back to Mass will be very difficult if not impossible. Working 7 days/wk, & cost prohibitive. I know it's best if can take it in MA, but really can't.
I am not licensed to practice law in Massachusetts, however a similar situation often arises under California law and I...
