    Monday Feb 20 | via Worcester Telegram & Gazette 

    For two years, state Trooper Nicholas J. Holden of the Brookfield barracks did something many social justice activists and police watchdogs have fought for: video and audio recorded his encounters with people he stopped. However, he made the recordings without official state police approval, failed to turn most of them over to prosecutors during court proceedings, and is now facing serious discipline, according to interviews and documents obtained by the Telegram & Gazette.

    Ten men, charged with sexual conduct for a fee, were arraigned in Westborough District Court today as part of a prostitution sting conducted by the State Police and local police departments, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. Last night, the Massachusetts State Police High Risk Victim Unit, in collaboration with the Northborough, Shrewsbury, Westborough and Southborough police departments, executed a sting operation in an effort to combat human trafficking and sexual exploitation of women. "The focus of this operation was to attack the demand side of human trafficking, where we too often see women forced into prostitution," Mr. Early said.

MA hardship license... Is a policies and procedures form with letterhead sufficient in proving I have to drive?
I am a visiting nurse and it states multiple times that a valid license is required for my job. Is that enough or do they require a letter actually written by a supervisor? I will most likely lose my job if that is the case.
Speak with an attorney who deals regularly with the Registry of Motor Vehicles in obtaining hardship licenses for...

Out of state DUI...affect MA drivers license?
Two nights ago I was charged with a DUI in the state of CA while on vacation. I supposedly failed the sobriety tests and also failed the breathalyzer. I hired an attorney from CA who I met with yesterday and he will be handling my case out there. He says it may be possible to get the charge reduced to a "wreckless driving" but the chances are slim. When my license is suspended in CA how likely is it that MA will find out? Ive done some research and it seems like it can go either way. I know that MA is not part of the NDR but in some cases they do find out. I don't need to renew my license for another 2 years so that shouldn't be a problem. My lawyer actually had the same case in October of last year and the Mass RMV never suspended the guys license although CA did take action against it.
MA does not appear to be a member of the compact of states that agree to cross report. However they may do so...
Third offense DUI, how long can it be continued?
My friend was arrested for a 3rd offense DUI over 2 years ago. He took the breathalyzer, which he failed, was arrested and lost his license. After 30 days, he paid the reinstatement fee, and got his license back - and has been driving without restrictions since it was reinstated. The court put him on a home breathalyzer monitor, 3 - 5 tests a day - which have all been negative for alcohol. The breathalyzer results from the night he was arrested are being challenged due to possibly not being properly calibrated. As mentioned, this case just passed 2 years of continuances while awaiting calibration records/results... How long can this continue? Is this something that should eventually be dismissed due to the amount of time that has passed?
Knowing only what you have written here, the answer is that it can be continued until both the prosecutor and the...
