After a Motion to Suppress, the Court ruled that the Defendant's request to suppress any and all out of court and in court identifications by the car owner was allowed. Additionally, the statements of the Defendant after his arrest were similarly suppressed at the request of Attorney Harris. At a subsequent bench trial in the West Roxbury Division of the Boston Municipal Court, the Commonwealth elicited testimony from three witnesses in an attempt to establish that the defendant was a passenger in a motor vehicle when it was involved in a single car crash five hours after it was stolen. After trial, Judge Shoptease found that the defendant was Not Guilty of the single charge of knowingly receiving a stolen motor vehicle.

Experts You Can Trust
Whether you're an employee wondering about your rights, involved in a custody battle or have been recently charged with a crime, the attorneys at Salvucci Harris have over twenty years of experience in bringing positive outcomes to their clients.
If you are being investigated by the police or other government agency or have been charged with a crime, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to advise you about your rights and zealously advocate for you in the courtroom. Police and other investigators are not looking out for your interests, despite what they may tell you. They are allowed to deceive you and even deliberately lie to you during the course of the investigation if it helps them build their case against you. The only person who is truly looking out for your best interests is your criminal defense attorney. Many people are wrongfully charged and even wrongfully convicted across the country. Don’t become one of these sad and disturbing statistics. Hire an attorney as soon as you learn that you are being investigated or charged with a crime. I will use my experience as both a criminal prosecutor and defense attorney to work to get you the best results on your case.
As an employee, it can be difficult to handle interactions with an employer. After all, you're just one person and they seem to hold all of the cards.
Legal battles with family members can be emotionally and physically draining. Those emotions can cloud your judgment and negatively impact your case. When facing a legal battle with a close family member, whether it is a divorce, financial support or child custody matter, it is important that you understand your legal rights. In such an emotionally trying time, you need an attorney who: gets to know you and your family; learns what your priorities and concerns are; and works within the complex legal system to achieve the goals that YOU have set. An experienced family law attorney can help you explore alternative dispute resolution options in order to avoid a costly and contentious trial that puts further stress upon your family.

Although nothing could ever fully compensate the client for loss of quality of life that her injuries caused, this settlement is a first step towards her regaining her independence.
