11 Questions Answered

Q. If a family member was murdered, how can a relative find out information about the case or about the progress of a case?
A: The relative should be able to get an update on the case by going to the clerk's office at the courthouse where the case is pending and asking to look at the file.
Q. What can i do to help my boyfriend after my daughter made false assault and battery charges on her stepfather?
A: The best thing you can do for your boyfriend is to make sure he has an excellent criminal defense attorney. Domestic violence charges - probably "assault and battery on a family or household member" - are prosecuted quite harshly in Massachusetts. It sounds like you will make a good witness since you were present for the (lack of) incident. One thing to avoid is pressuring your daughter to change her story; that could lead to intimidation of a witness charges. Good luck.
Q. Brother being charged with 2 counts of murder and something else. Self defense. Low income family. Need help
A: You have at least a couple options. Your brother can ask the judge to assign him another court appointed lawyer, or you can call around and try to find a private defense attorney who would be willing to take the case either pro bono or at a reduced fee. I have certainly agreed to that when possible. Good luck to you and your family.
