  • What happened

    Feb 23, 2015 | via Lowell Sun 

    The fatal shooting of Doug Sparks on a residential street in Tewksbury is Marian Ryan's first major test since being elected Middlesex County district attorney last year. Her office must remain detached and be objective while it investigates what happened on Forest Avenue on Tuesday, Feb. 17. If the shooting was justified, Ryan must exonerate the two Tewksbury detectives involved who are now placed on administrative leave as is customary with these incidents.

Medford Law

I filed a surcharge appeal from an auto accident and am awaiting a hearing.
In April 2012 I was involved In a small fender bender. An SUV swerved into my lane, without signaling, trying to get around a stopped vehicle turning left. Because of this I struck the rear of his vehicle at a low rate of speed. There was NO damage to the other SUV and minimal damage to my sedan (grille damage estimated at $275) we decided not to pursue. 6 months later I receive notice the other driver is going after my insurance company. I am found at fault and the other driver is paid out $21,000 for a whiplash claim (14 k medical 7 k payout) he did not claim any property damage. I have picture of both vehicles on the day of the accident. And need to gather more evidence to help my appeal. Any suggestions?
What is your basis for an appeal? Your insurance company does not have any motivation to pay more on a claim then they...

I recently was charged for a 1st offense oui, will it be easy to get a hardship license?
I work for a jewelry company that hosts parties and events. Using public transportation wouldn't work because I need to carry merchandise and supplies with me. However, I don't have a set schedule because I told my boss I can't work until I get this license. I have enrolled in a 24d program. Does this prove a legitimate hardship?
This the RMV website link on what you need to show to get a hardship license. Good luck. http://www.mass.gov/rmv/...

DUI in CO - Moved to Boston. Questions about in-home jail and community service.
I got my 1st DUI in Denver on 12/5/14. I pled guilty on 2/19/15. My lawyer set up a plea deal where the DA would agree to a BAC of .199 (instead of .207) and I would do 10 days of in-home jail in Boston. However, I still have not been sentenced - this will be 5/8/15. Can I organize it and do the 10 days now or do I need to wait until sentencing? I have a lawyer in CO, but he hasn't responded to my voicemails, emails or msgs left with reception. He stopped responding 3 wks ago, right after my DMV hearing. Our contract is through sentencing, so he should still respond. (This is its own issue) Does anyone have any ideas about doing the in home jail? Are you aware of companies that do it in this area? Also, as far as Boston goes, what kinds of places count for community service? Thank you
this sounds strange, my guess is you might be mistaken about what happened in Court. It is possible you got a...

I live in Florida and plan on going back in June or July 2015. Currently I am living in Massachusetts.
I was arrested in Quincy, MA for OUI, first offense. No accident, no injuries. If I resolve my case with a plea, can I do the alcohol substance abuse education program in Florida where I live? Also, I am scheduled to leave the country for Italy next month for a few weeks, can I leave the country before my case gets resolved or do I need the courts permission? If I resolve my case before my scheduled trip, can I leave the country before starting the alcohol substance abuse education program? Or will I need the permission of the probation dept? Thank You.
