Client, who had an extensive record, including numerous violent offenses as well as failure to appear for court both in and outside Massachusetts, sat in jail for 90 days. Client’s bail had been revoked on an old, open case for “catching” a new case, against the judge’s previous orders. To make matters worse, one of the named victims was also a named victim in the old case. Despite ugly facts, photos and medical evidence that there had been a stabbing, counsel moved the case to a trial date with urgency and secured client’s freedom. Client, who’s struggled with drug dependency for years hopes to turn over a new leaf and stay clean.
