Felony Larceny Charges in Dedham MA: Dismissed.

  • Facts: our client owned and operated a successful swimming pool installation company in RI and MA for decades. In April 2019, during a traffic stop, he was told he had an outstanding warrant from 2004. Apparently, an unhappy customer filed a criminal complaint in Dedham, MA in 2002 accusing him of failing to return a deposit and a pool pump, and later requested an arrest warrant from the court. Our client had no idea there was a warrant out for his arrest that entire time.
  • In July, we argued before the Judge, asking for a dismissal of the charges based on a lack of evidence. The Judge took a couple of weeks to decide on our argument.

  • Case date: July 2019.
