Charlestown Speeding Violation

Boston Clerk’s Hearing Report

JURISDICTION: Charlestown District Court




The defendant was issued a Massachusetts Uniform Citation because a Massachusetts State Trooper alleged that the defendant was travelling in excess of thirty four miles per hour above the posted speed limit.  Accordingly, the defendant was assessed a $340 fine and faced the likelihood of the RMV suspending his Massachusetts license to operate a motor vehicle.

The defendant filed an appeal, and was required to attend a Civil Motor Vehicle Infraction Hearing at Charlestown District Court s that a clerk magistrate could determine whether to assess the defendant the fine.

Criminal Defense Lawyer successfully argued that the Massachusetts Uniform Citation should be dismissed and the assessment should be forgiven.


Massachusetts Uniform Citation was dismissed and the $340 assessment was forgiven.  The defendant’s license to operate a motor vehicle was not suspended.
