Brookline Leaving Scene of Property Damage Accident

Boston Clerk’s Hearing Report

JURISDICTION:     Brookline District Court

CASE NAME:

Withheld

CASE DETAILS:

The defendant was alleged to have committed the following offenses:

1. Leaving Scene of Property Damage Accident

The application for the criminal complaint alleged that the defendant was operating a friend’s motor vehicle, when she crashed into a parked vehicle causing damage.  A witness reported to the Brookline Police Department that the defendant and her companion exited their vehicle after the crash; they inspected the damage; then, returned to their vehicle and left the scene without reporting the accident.

Therefore, the defendant was required to attend a clerk’s hearing at Brookline District Court so that a clerk magistrate could determine whether probable cause existed to issue the criminal complaint for Leaving the Scene of a Property Damage Accident.

Citing mitigating circumstances, Massachusetts Criminal Defense Lawyer successfully argued that criminal complaint should not issue.

DISPOSITION:

Application for criminal complaint denied.  Therefore, no record of the allegations shall appear on the defendant’s CORI.
