Practically each day, I am in a District or Superior Court in Massachusetts representing clients, like you, charged with all sorts of crimes. Too many defendants plead guilty! At the same time, I see many defendants who come into court by themselves, without an attorney, and decide to plea guilty. Why? Because they know in their hearts that they committed the crime for which they have been accused no matter if he’s accused with assault and battery and feel they have no other alternative.

  • The Strange History of Shoplifting

    Back in 1910, a man and his wife were both charged with shoplifting because they allegedly stole a pair of boots from a shop. The man took the boots from a shelf and passed them to his wife, who was subsequently caught as she attempted to leave the shop. Back then, it was presumed that a wife was under the control of her husband and therefore was not an independent agent. Accordingly, the judge directed the jury to find the woman not guilty. While this rule was applied to shoplifting and other minor offenses, it was not applied to more serious crimes like murder.

The question the court had to decide was whether only the individual who committed the Assault and Battery was liable or given the alleged premeditated nature of the crime, the whole group was guilty.
