Criminal Charges

Have You Been Charged With Theft?

A theft charge is certainly beatable, and there are many strategies available to do just that. At The Law Offices of Elliot Savitz & Scott Bradley our attorneys will file motions to guarantee that the evidence that is being used against you was legally obtained. We will make sure that your rights were not violated in any way. If you were entitled to a Clerk’s Hearing and never received one, we will work hard to get your case dismissed, as we have for many others.

Open & Gross Lewdness

If you have been charged with Open & Gross Lewdness or other sex offender registry crimes, you are at risk of humiliation and persecution for the rest of your life. That is why you must act NOW to hire the best attorney possible, who can negotiate with the District Attorney and file whatever motions are necessary to resolve your case. Motions to dismiss for lack of probable cause and to suppress evidence obtained by an illegal search and seizure may bring a hasty resolution to your case.

Operating Under the Influence (OUI/DWI/DUI)

In Massachusetts, you can be charged with Operating Under the Influence (OUI). In other states, the same crime is known as Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or Driving Under the Influence (DUI). An OUI may be either an OUI Liquor or an OUI Drugs. In either case, you are charged with operating a vehicle on a public road or a road that the public has access to while your ability to drive is impaired by either liquor or drugs. However in order to be charged with an OUI, the intoxicated individual does not need to be driving the vehicle when he/she is caught. The driver may be sleeping at a traffic light, on the side of the road or even changing a flat tire.


Possession of a Controlled Substance is the crime of unlawfully possessing a controlled substance, knowingly or intentionally. Whichever possession offense you are being accused of, you will need an experienced attorney to talk you through your options and fight for your best interests in court. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Elliot Savitz & Scott Bradley are experts in criminal law. They will ensure that your case is heard, while using their wealth of experience in Massachusetts law to minimize the impact these charges have on your life.

Possession of a Controlled Substance

Possession of a Controlled Substance is the crime of unlawfully possessing a controlled substance, knowingly or intentionally. In order to prove that the Defendant is guilty of Possession of a Controlled Substance, the prosecutor must prove 3 things beyond a reasonable doubt: That the substance in question is a controlled substance, that the Defendant possessed some perceptible amount of the substance, that the Defendant did so knowingly or intentionally. The maximum penalty is 1 year in a county house of correction (HOC) or 5 years in state prison, in addition, there is the loss of your driver’s license so it is imperative that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney.

Possession of Marijuana

Even though possession of less than 1 ounce of marijuana in Massachusetts is now a civil, non-criminal charge, you can still be charged with possession with intent to distribute and manufacturing, as well as a school zone offense. That means for under 1 ounce of marijuana, you could be facing up to a mandatory 2 years in jail, or considerably more if you are sentenced consecutively to more than one charge. Of course, for quantities greater than 1 ounce, you can be charged with possession, as well.

Possession of Marijuana Accusation?

Many defenses exist for drug charges. For example, a charge like possession of marijuana with Intent to Distribute or Distribution of Drugs might mean that your Boston criminal attorney can file a motion to dismiss for lack of probable cause or to suppress evidence obtained through an illegal search and seizure. Failure of the police to read your Miranda rights may protect you from statements you made to the police in a custodial situation. Your Boston criminal attorney may also file a motion for Pre-Trial Diversion or negotiate with the District Attorney to reduce the charge to straight possession. He/she may even negotiate a Continuation without a Finding (CWOF), which means that you will not lose your driver’s license.

Possession with Intent to Distribute Drugs or Distribution of Drugs

There are many strategies for defending a charge of Possession with Intent to Distribute Drugs or Distribution of Drugs. Although each case is unique, The Law Offices of Elliot Savitz & Scott Bradley have years of experience and no matter the circumstances, we are prepared to protect your rights.

If you have a Probation Surrender Hearing, you are in jeopardy of going to jail on the probation violation, regardless of the severity of the charges. It is so very important that you are represented by an experienced criminal defense attorney at your Probation Surrender. We may argue that justice is not served by further punishing you while you are trying to turn your life around, and may have inadvertently made a mistake during your probation. Our attorneys have handled hundreds of these cases successfully, and there is a good chance we can help you, too.

Robbery Charges

If you are charged with Robbery in Massachusetts, you need to consult with a criminal defense attorney immediately! A criminal charge for a felony, such as robbery, will be prosecuted in the Superior Court, and the defendant can be incarcerated in state prison for a period of years, up to life. Exact sentencing depends on guidelines set by the Massachusetts courts, as well as the judge’s discretion. Cases like these often continue in court for a considerable amount of time. At The Law Offices of Elliot Savitz & Scott Bradley, our lawyers are willing to make as many appearances as necessary to handle your case. 

School Zone Drug Violation

Nonetheless, each case is unique and will require a unique defense. Fortunately, there are many legal options that we can employ to give you the best possible representation. Let us help you get your serious school zone violation charge reduced or dismissed!
