Salem Motor Vehicle Infringements

Boston Clerk’s Hearing Report

JURISDICTION: Salem District Court

CASE NAME:

Withheld

CASE DETAILS:

The defendant was alleged to have committed the following offenses:

1. Unlawfully Attaching Motor Vehicle License Plate

2. Motor Vehicle Registration Violation

3. Unlawfully Abandonment of a Motor Vehicle

The application for the criminal complaint alleged that the defendant unlawfully abandoned her motor vehicle in a Shaw’s parking lot.  Further, the application alleged that the defendant then illegally attached an invalid license plate to a separate vehicle, so that two motor vehicles had the same invalid license plates attached thereto.

Therefore, the defendant was required to attend a clerk’s hearing at Salem District Court so that a clerk magistrate could determine whether probable cause existed to issue a criminal complaint for said offenses.

Massachusetts Criminal Defense Lawyer successfully argued that the criminal complaint should not issue.

DISPOSITION:

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