Commonwealth v. AW – Larceny by Single Scheme
Outcome: Dismissed
Cambridge District Court, 2019

Commonwealth v. SG – Possession to Distribute Class B Substance
Outcome: Dismissed
Cambridge District Court, 2019
Client was charged with possessing cocaine with the intention to distribute. The police approached a car with four males in it based on reports of a “shotspotter” activation. The police ordered all males out of the car. When client exited, the police discovered a substantial amount of cocaine on the passenger seat that he was alleged to have been sitting on. Attorney Patrick Winn recognized that the exit order given by police violated the client’s constitutional rights. Attorney Winn moved to suppress the evidence (cocaine) that was discovered as the result of an illegal exit order. The Motion to Suppress was allowed and the Commonwealth was forced to dismiss the case for lack of evidence.
Commonwealth v. DP – Trespassing
Outcome: Dismissed
Cambridge District Court, 2019
Client was charged with trespassing based on a report by police that she had spent the night at the Harvard University cafeteria. Client was not a student or affiliated with the University.

Outcome: Dismissed

Commonwealth v. SC – Restraining Order Violations
Outcome: Dismissed
Wrentham District Court, 2015
Client was charged with two counts of violating a restraining order based on similar incidents where witnesses reported he followed plaintiff into a parking lot.

Because notice was an element of the crime, the court allowed the motion to dismiss the charges.
