    APPEAL WON

    Wrongfully Imprisoned Client Released From Jail

    Prior to hiring our firm, our client was charged with OUI-Liquor, third offense. He took his case to trial with a different firm. Unfortunately, after trial he was found guilty and was incarcerated. After speaking with our firm, we were able to uncover multiple appeal issues with the trial itself and the judge’s finding that he was a third offender. We immediately filed motions for relief and a motion for new trial. The judge realized these issues and allowed in part our motion for new trial, which legally vacated his jail sentence. Because his sentence was vacated, there was no longer any legal basis for our client to continue to be held in jail. However, the judge refused to release our client from jail and continued to order that he be held despite there being no legal basis to do so. We immediately filed an emergency appeal of the judge’s order illegally holding our client in jail. Ultimately, the Massachusetts Appeals Court agreed with us and allowed our petition to immediately release our client from jail, and he has since been released! Our client was given back his freedom and home with his family!
