I’m often asked how people find me and how do they know I’m the right person
to handle their case. Most people look online and choose the first lawyer they
see but more time and effort should be placed into finding the right criminal
defense attorney for your case.

Below I have made a video describing what I think are some of the questions
people should ask and give some advice on how to find a criminal defense


I won’t just repeat everything I say in the video here but some of the main
questions I suggest you ask any potential criminal attorney is whether they
offer a free consultation? Any attorney should offer you a free consultation to
discuss your personal situation. In that free consultation you should ask the
attorney their experience in the practice area in which you were charged. You
should also discuss the legal fee and what does it include such as an
investigator or expert witnesses if needed. And most importantly you should feel
comfortable with the attorney; this is someone who you are trusting with a big
case that can have a huge effect on your life. The attorney should be one who
communicates well with you and keeps you informed at every step of the case. He should return calls promptly and keep you informed of any developments in the case.

Please take a look at the video below where I go into more detail about things to ask a potential criminal defense attorney.

As a Boston criminal defense lawyer I offer free consultations and practice in a
variety of areas of criminal defense both in State and Federal court. Feel free to call if for a free consultation 617-393-0250 or visit my website for more information

I have had many clients who have been charged with stealing items from a store.
If the items are valued over $250 the charge can take the form of a felony
larceny over $250. Shoplifting is a misdemeanor charge and is usually issued for
Items which add up to less than $250.

A person can be either arrested for shoplifting or larceny at the scene or
taken to be processed at the police station and then to the court for
arraignment on the charge. Another way the case can be brought forward is by the
client being released at the scene and told that they will receive a summons in
the mail for a clerk magistrates hearing. A clerk magistrate hearing is where
a clerk of the court will listen to an officer under oath read from a police
report summarizing the facts of the event and decide whether a criminal charge
should be issued. The level of proof is very low merely probable cause has to be
filed that a crime was committed, it is not a trial and charges can be issued
very easily based on a summary given from a police report. As a criminal defense
attorney in Boston I have had great success and convincing a clerk magistrate to
not bring a charge against my client.  A client with no criminal record who
otherwise appears to live law abiding life gives me some great arguments to get
to the clerk as to why the charge should not be brought against a client.

Boston has many university students I have represented many students at clerk
magistrates’ hearings who have no criminal record and appeared to have a bright
future ahead of them but made a complete lack of judgment and stool items from
the store. The clerk magistrate has the ability to either issue a case or to
consider taking it under advisement which is to hold onto it without issuing any
charges at this time to give a person an opportunity to prove that this was a
one time lapse in judgment and not a common practice to steal.

University students Who are in Boston as foreign exchange students or as a
citizen of another country here on any type of visa face a greater harm by
risking either deportation or inadmissibility back into the US if they leave
based on criminal charges. I have dealt with many non-US citizen clients who
have put themselves in grave situations facing deportation which would in effect
and their college careers because of a silly lapse in judgment which led to a
felony charge. If you are non-US citizen you must take any criminal charge very
seriously in that it would potentially lead to deportation or inadmissibility
in the future.

Immigration and the criminal courts are separate, immigration and customs
enforcement known as ice is a part of homeland security, whereas the Boston
courts are a state entity. Immigration does work closely with criminal court’s
to see if any non-US citizens have committed crimes which make them either
deportable or inadmissible.

As a Boston criminal defense attorney Frank Fernandez as represented many clients
charged with shoplifting and larceny over $250 with great results. Attorney
Fernandez has represented clients in Boston Municipal Court, Quincy Court,
Dedham District Court, Brighton District Court, as well as in Norfolk, Worcester, Plymouth and Middlesex Counties. If you were facing a criminal charge of shoplifting call for free consultation 617-393-0250.

Indecent assault and battery is a touching of another person in an area which
is deemed fundamentally offensive when viewed by contemporary standards, and it must be without consent or justification. This generally
includes areas of the buttocks, breasts and crotch and by definition any
fundamentally offensive touching when viewed through contemporary standards.

Indecent assault and battery on a person under 14 is the same charge
without the issue of consent being a factor. Indecent assault and battery on a child under 14 is taken very seriously since a child is involved and a person can face up to 2 1/2 years in the house of corrections or up to five years in the department of corrections.

Conviction for indecent assault and battery requires a person to register as a
sex offender with the sex offender registry board.  Which carries potential registration on an online datatbase which for certain level sex offenders is available to be viewed by the public.

A sexual assault charge can reach the court in different ways.  A person can be arrested and brought to court for arraignment, which is the formal reading of the charge in open court and where bail is decided by the judge along with any conditions of release to assure the safety of the alleged victim and make sure the accused returns to court.  GPS bracelets are often ordered to restrict where a person can go.  If the charge involved a minor certain GPS safety zones are created such as schools or playgrounds to ensure the person stays away from all minors.

Another way a sexual assault charge may be brought is through a clerk magistrate hearing.  A person may receive notice in the mail to appear for a clerk magistrate hearing related to an accusation of sexual assault.  You should bring an experienced sexual assault attorney with you to the clerk magistrate hearing.  A clerk at these hearings either hears from a person who is accusing you of indecent assault and battery or may hear from a detective who reads from a police report which  summarizes the accusations.  You have an opportunity to tell your side.  Be very careful you will be placed under oath and anything you say can be used against you in future proceedings.   It is important to have a criminal attorney speak on your behalf.  The standard of proof to charge someone is probable cause, it is not a trial.  The clerk has to just hear an accusation which can form probable cause to charge you with a crime.  One person’s accusation whether false or not can form the basis of a sexual assault charge and be enough to have a case issued against you.

Some of the other more common sexual assault crimes that can be charged in Massachusetts are rape, aggravated rape, Open and gross lewdness, possession of child pornography, distribution of child pornography, distribution of offensive material to a minor and indecent exposure.

If you are charged in Boston or anywhere in Massachusetts with indecent assault
and battery it is important to call a Boston criminal attorney with experience
in representing people on sexual assault charges. Attorney Frank Fernandez can
advise you as to what you can expect when you go to court or after being arrested or summonsed to a clerk magistrate hearing for sexual assault offense. It is important to have a criminal attorney with you to fight for your rights and to
make sure that you are treated fairly.  You need someone with experience when the court is attempting to impose bail and restrictive conditions of release.

Simple possession of drugs for personal use is a common charge.there is a heroin
epidemic in Massachusetts and all over the country. Heroin and opiate is a drug
which creates a strong craving in addicts. Heroin addicts are responsible for a
large amount of petty theft and armed robberies all for the purpose of getting
their next fix. Possession of drugs for personal use including heroin, cocaine,
ecstasy and prescription medications is dealt with every day in the Boston
courts. Sentences may become severe if a person becomes a repeat offender and also engages in violent crime to satisfy their addiction.

Other drug crimes include drug trafficking which basically is the possession of
a large amount of drugs which by law is considered to be an amount for
distribution. Trafficking in drugs in Massachusetts can lead to long mandatory
minimum sentences. Depending on the type of drug and the amounts
increasing mandatory minimums will apply. Possession of 18 grams of heroin
carries a 3 1/2 year mandatory minimum sentence in Massachusetts.  Possession of over 18 g of cocaine carries a two-year mandatory minimum sentence.  It is a sliding scale from there, all the way to over 200 g and more
triggering a 12 year mandatory minimum sentence. Drug trafficking in
Massachusetts is treated very seriously and can be prosecuted both in state and
federal court.

Federal agents engage in long surveillance operations in which
they tap phones and keep an eye on suspects getting as much evidence as possible before moving in and arresting all those involved. A group engaged in drug trafficking can be charged with conspiracy to distribute drugs in both state and federal court which is a charge that cast a wide net and makes it easy to prosecute anyone who did anything to further the conspiracy. A person who does not even handle the drugs but rather perform some other function in the conspiracy can still be held responsible for the whole amount of drugs that was reasonably foreseeable in the conspiracy. A conspiracy criminal charge in Massachusetts can hold someone responsible for the entire group and the entire amount of drugs involved.  Conspiracy charges are very broad and benefit the prosecutor in that anyone can be dragged up and considered as to helping the conspiracy.

Possession with intent to distribute a drug is charged when someone has
possession of an amount which is not enough to trigger trafficking but it
appears to be packaged or other evidence exists which suggests it was to be
distributed. Other evidence suggesting distribution are multiple cell phone,  large
amounts of cash, scales, baggies and any other drug distribution paraphernalia. Possession with intent to distribute can carry a harsher sentence then
possession for personal use.

As a Boston criminal drug trafficking attorney Frank Fernandez as represented
many clients in both state and federal court charged with drug
trafficking, possession with intent to distribute or possession of drugs for
personal use.

In Massachusetts if you were caught selling drugs within 300 feet of a school
zone or park this triggers a mandatory minimum sentence of two years on
and after any sentence for the distribution itself. The school zone charge or
distribution near a park or playground can lead to this added charge.

Whether you are involved in a bar fight one argument which took turned physical
at home with your spouse or partner you may find yourself charged with domestic assault
and battery and in the Boston District Court wondering what to do.   It is
important to understand that if the police respond to a home where there is an
allegation that someone was hit or if they see an injury and believe it may have
been caused by an assault they are ordered to take action and to make an arrest.
Many times the alleged victim pleads with the police to not make an arrest and
claim that nothing happened. The police will ignore the alleged victim and will
make an arrest if someone has reported to physical assault or the view an injury
that appears to be an assault, the police do this to avoid the situation
escalating and them responding later to an even more serious situation where
someone is injured even worse or killed. The last thing the police want is to
leave a scene which may become explosive only later to find out that it did and
it will be known that they responded and did nothing in the earlier instance. So
they cover themselves and also make sure they protect a person from further domestic abuse by making an arrest based on a mere allegation.  But it doesn’t end there, the prosecutor will seek to prosecute the a charge of assault and battery on a family or household member which is treated as a domestic violence case.  The charge is pursued even if the alleged victim says that they lied and nothing happened.  They will go forward even without the victim if there is any independent evidence that an assault occurred. Independent evidence may be other witnesses who saw what happened, visible injuries or anything else which can be used as evidence that an assault took place especially any admissions by the suspect..

Assault and battery with a dangerous weapon is a charge of assault with some
type of device which can be considered dangerous. A foot in a shoe used to kick
someone can be considered a dangerous weapon.

Simple assault and battery is a physical touching against another person against their will no matter how slight. So even if you did not harm a person all that is needed is a touching without their permission. This is charged usually when there’s a fight between two strangers at a bar or on the street. Aggravated assault and battery is when an assault occurs which leads to serious injuries, this charge carries enhanced penalties because of the aggravated injuries. Other charges can take the form of assault and battery on an elderly person, assault and battery on a disabled person or an emergency personnel or police officer while in the line of duty.

In Massachusetts District Court cases can begin by either an arrest and application by the police for a criminal charge to be issued or an application for complaint requesting a clerk magistrates hearing also known as a show cause hearing. When the police are witnesses to an event or the charge is a felony they have the right to apply directly for the charge to be issued and an accused would be brought to court in custody or sent a summons for an arraignment. An arraignment is the formal reading the of charges in open court where a plea of not guilty is entered and the court inquires of the accused as to whether he has an attorney or is seeking a court-appointed attorney because they cannot afford a private attorney. A court appointed attorney is only provided to the indigent or those who make less than a certain amount every year. The amount of salary required to not qualify for a court appointed attorney is very low, if you work at all it is difficult to receive a court-appointed attorney.

The other way the case can begin in District Court other then by arrest and arraignment is by application for criminal complaint. A person is entitled to have a criminal clerk magistrates hearing related to misdemeanors in which the police are not a witness. The clerk magistrate or show cause hearing is an informal hearing in front of the clerk magistrate in which a police officer usually reads from a police report as to the facts which make up the charge against the accused. At times witnesses are brought in by the police to testify especially when it is one witness’s word versus the accused which makes up the case. The standard of proof for issuing the charge is one of probable cause to believe that the accused was involved in the crime. The clerk magistrate’s hearing is not a trial, rules of evidence are relaxed and a clerk is the one who decides whether probable cause exists to issue a charge. An accused can testify and also bring in witnesses or evidence to help explain his side. One must be very careful because the accused will be placed under oath anything a person says at the hearing can be used against him on a later date if the charges issue.

The clerk magistrate can decide not to issue the charge and take the matter under advisement where it will disappear after a certain amount of time as long as there are no new accusations against the accused. A matter can always be brought back on a later date and issued if new developments have aggravated the situation.

If the clerk decides to issue the charge all this means is that now the case will begin in court and the accused will be given a date for arraignment for the case to begin. This is basically how cases begin in District Court.

Every county in Massachusetts has several district courts within it but each county only has one Superior Court. The superior courts handle more serious matters which are those which Carry a potential sentence of over 2 1/2 years. 2 1/2 years is the longest a person can be sent to the House of Corrections, if a charge requires a longer sentence it is served at the department of corrections. The department of corrections deals with those convicted of felonies and sentenced to over 2 ½ years. The Department of Corrections has different levels from maximum security for violent felons down to minimum-security or Workcamp type facilities.

For a case to reach Superior Court the accused must be indicted by a grand jury or have a probable cause hearing in front of a judge. The purpose for this is to assure there is minimal proof linking the accused to the crime before requiring the person to face charges. This is the same purpose of the clerk magistrate hearing in District Court. A grand jury is usually made up of anywhere between 16 to 25 people from the community who sit for a term of several months hearing large amounts of cases presented by the prosecutor’s office. The grand jury is a private hearing in which the prosecutor informally presents evidence such as police officers or detectives as well as the victims of crimes who relate the evidence against the accused and the charges that are being sought against the accused. Grand jurors can ask questions of the witnesses as can the prosecutor who directs the witnesses testimony. An accused and his attorney have no right to be present in the grand jury while they are hearing or deciding on a case. At times and accused may request to testify and give his side of events to a grand jury. A criminal lawyer must be consulted before someone offers to testify in front of a grand jury especially if they are considered the target of the investigation. The level of proof to indict someone is again based on probable cause linking the accused to the crime. It is not a trial, the defendant and his attorney are not even present. It is merely a show cause hearing to ensure that there is some link between the accused and the crime.

A probable cause hearing is also another manner in which a person may be indicted. It is used very rarely. It is a hearing in which the accused and his attorney are present in open court and where evidence is presented to a judge rather than a grand jury, very similar to a clerk magistrates hearing but the judge decides whether probable cause exists for a charge to be issued. The differences is the accused is present with an attorney and the witnesses can be cross examined and what they say can be used later against the witness if the case is issued by the judge. The reason that this is used so rarely by the Commonwealth is because it offers the defense a bite at the Apple when it comes to cross examining the witnesses. Many cases especially sexual assaults are sensitive in nature and the Commonwealth attempts to limit the exposure of the victim or central witnesses who would need to testify. Probable cause hearings
also require the court to expend judicial resources that are very limited already in dealing with huge bottleneck of pending charges that already exist on the trial docket.

If you face a clerk magistrates hearing or if you or summonsed as a witness or the target of a grand jury proceeding you need to speak with a criminal lawyer in Boston as soon as possible to get advice as to what to expect in your best course of action.

Client is a software engineer from India who would suffer the loss of employment if her company became aware of her being charged with the felony of larceny over $250. She is here on an H-1 B business visa and is the sole provider for her family back in India. Based on the extreme hardship she would suffer I was able to speak with the prosecutor explain situation and convince the Commonwealth to agree to postpone arraignment for her to complete 40 hours of community service. Upon completion of 40 hours of community service at a nonprofit organization they agreed to dismiss charges of larceny over 250 and receiving stolen property prior to arraignment.

Client was found with over two thousand dollars worth of merchandise that was taken from two stores. Since the merchandise was valued over $250 she was not charged with shoplifting but the more serious felony charge of larceny over $250 and receiving stolen property. The receiving stolen property charge was related to the property in her possession which was from another store. These types of matters can either be scheduled for a clerk magistrate hearing or in this case the person can be arrested, a bail set and scheduled for arraignment. She was arrested by the Braintree police and released on her own personal recognizance to appear in Quincy district court today.

As a criminal lawyer in Boston Frank Fernandez has handled many magistrate hearings some in Quincy, Boston Municipal Court and many other counties all around Massachusetts. A Clerk magistrate hearing is a hearing before a clerk in which the clerk of court decides whether probable cause exists to charge someone with a crime. The officer involved in the arrest does not need to appear. At times a witness or victim may be summonsed to testify. Hearsay is allowed and a clerk may hear from an officer not involved with the case who merely reads the police report as a summary of what took place. A person can then ask questions of the officer or be sworn in and testify themselves as to their version of the events. Anything you say can be used in future proceedings against you if charged with a crime. It is important to have a criminal attorney represent you to be able to speak on your behalf without you making any admissions or make statements which can later be used against you. A criminal lawyer can inform the clerk as to your personal situation and give reasons why a charge should not issue. Attorney Fernandez has been very successful in convincing the court to not proceed with charges although probable cause exists.

If you receive a summons in the mail for a clerk magistrate or show cause hearing related to any type of crime including shoplifting, larceny, salt and battery or any criminal violation is important to speak with criminal lawyer as quickly as possible to get advice.

On Wednesday, October 15 Max Bickford was riding a moped in downtown Boston when all of the sudden a plainclothes police officer chased a suspect into the street in front of him. The suspect was arrested stopping traffic. Bickford took out his cell phone and began to videotape the arrest. The officer told him to move out of the way which he did. In the video the officer is then seen grabbing Beckford’s phone and this is where the video ends. Bickford states that the officer then threw the phone on the ground breaking the face of it. He was placed in handcuffs and thrown to the ground himself. He was eventually released and given back his broken cell phone.

Bickford called the police station to lodge a complaint and was told by the lieutenant that the officer believed there may have been evidence on the cell phone. It is not illegal to videotape an arrest made in public. The police need a search warrant to seize and look into phones content.

The Boston police, as well as all police departments all over the country, need to start to get used to the idea that they can and will be videotaped in the performance of their duties in public. Large cities such as London have video cameras set up throughout the whole city which allows for surveillance from a main headquarters to provide Public Safety and evidence. It is about time that the police begin to use video surveillance to their own advantage. Many crimes have no witnesses but yet can’t be solved through surveillance video of a public area.

Some police departments are experimenting with police worn video cameras on their chest which records video and audio of the officer performing his duties.
This can provide evidence for the police and identification of the suspect; this can only help prove a criminal case. It will also keep the police honest. If the police truly want to avoid continuous complaints of police brutality or
mistreatment of civilians on the street by abusive police officers then why not agree to videotape their interactions with the public?

Video surveillance should become commonplace, it will help the police with their gathering of evidence and it will keep them honest in their dealings with the public in that any abusive behavior by rogue police officers will be captured on tape and can be used to get them off the force. Many fear the video surveillance of public areas may encroach upon a right to privacy. I am not advocating for video cameras to be placed in private areas or a position in which they encroach on anyone’s privacy. People who are in public areas such as streets or parks should expect that their behavior may be recorded. This can only help in protecting our streets. We can learn a lot from cities with advanced technology already in place such as London.

This will help cut down on the police over reaching their boundaries and violating people’s rights and will provide evidence of whether true probable cause exists for an arrest.

Right now police type up a police report with their version of the events and probable cause as to their actions without any evidence of what really took place on the street. A suspect is left to tell his side at a trial after having been arrested charged and gone through a lengthy court process waiting for his trial date in court. Rather than allow for a suspect to face criminal charges based solely on a version of events in a police report why not use video surveillance which is now affordable and in the form which can easily be used. All interviews of suspects should be audio taped yet they are still routinely not. Suspects give statements which are misconstrued and written in a report skewing what was truly said. Video capabilities are inexpensive and can be used by police departments without any consequence other than making themselves accountable for their actions.

Boston Municipal Court client is charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and possession of a firearm without a license. The possession of a firearm without a license charge carries a mandatory minimum 18 months House of corrections sentence.

Facts of the case are that client goes to a friend’s home with a backpack with a couple small bags of marijuana in the backpack as well as a weight scale. While the client is charging his phone in the upstairs bedroom of his friends home two cousins of his friend come running back into the home stating that the police are on their way.

One of them stated that the gun jammed on him. Police arrive on the scene,
the client in fear that he will be caught with his backpack with the marijuana and scale shuts the door to the home. All others are outside of the house at this point. The police draw their attention to the home and eventually are allowed in and search, Clients backpack is found in the upstairs bedroom along with his phone charging, a gun is found under the mattress.

Client received a continuance without a finding related to the marijuana charge.
A continuance without a finding is when a client makes an admission to a charge waving his rights to trial but yet a judge does not find him guilty but rather continues the matter without any finding for a period of time, usually about a year. As long as there are no new charges or incidents the case is dismissed after the year.
It is an alternative disposition which avoids a conviction and is usually only offered to first-time offenders on non-violent type offenses.

A Jury trial took place related to the firearm charge, the client had made a statement to the police denying any knowledge that the gun was in the home and relaying what he had heard the others say when entering the home. The jury found client not guilty to possession of the firearm. The client’s recorded statement to the police only hours after the incident was very powerful evidence for the jury. He was very clear and gave detailed descriptions as to what took place when the two others came running back to the home. The client did not testify at trial but rather spoke to the jury through his recorded statement at the time of his arrest.

There was just not enough evidence tying the client to the firearm in that his statement made it clear that his behavior was related to his fear of being found with marijuana and the scale in his backpack and had nothing to do with a firearm.

It is unusual to have such a helpful recorded statement after an arrest, usually it is best to remain silent if what you say may in anyway incriminate you.
