3 men arrested on assault and battery charges after a fight

When people get into a disagreement, it can be very easy for emotions to run high and for things to get heated quickly. Being convicted of assault and battery charges in Massachusetts is a very serious matter. The person who is convicted may face a considerable amount of time in prison. This can also have adverse long-term effects on that person's social life and work prospects after his or her sentence that are not easily overlooked.

An unidentified man was taken to a local medical facility for injuries reportedly obtained in a fight. Authorities reported that the man, who had suffered head injuries and damage to his face, was initially not responding to communication attempts. Although he should survive the encounter, he is still at the hospital for further treatment.

An alleged family drug ring is being brought up on drug charges

It is the job of Massachusetts authorities to clean up the streets to make them safe, but it is possible that in the excitement of catching a potential criminal, a mistake could be made. This type of mistake is very costly and can be life-changing for the person who is involved. A person who is arrested for a narcotics offense is confronting a very serious matter. The drug charges against a person can lead to extensive jail time as well as possible heavy fines. Several family members are finding this out for themselves firsthand.

A raid was conducted on an apartment after a month-long investigation by narcotics detectives. When authorities arrived to bust the suspected drug ring, a mother and her two sons were found inside. The family was alleged to have been delivering drugs around the nearby area.

Passenger and driver faced with drug charges after speeding

People who are arrested on drug charges can face very serious consequences if the prosecution obtains a conviction. Although Massachusetts authorities are only trying to do their job, there can always be a chance for an error. If a person is convicted on drug charges, the repercussions are very serious and can lead to extensive time spent in a penitentiary or heavy monetary fines, depending on the circumstances.

According to a Massachusetts state trooper, a car was traveling over the speed limit, and appeared to be weaving in and out of the lanes. When the officer pulled over the driver, he claimed that the male driver was nervous and sweaty. The female passenger was allegedly fidgeting and kept moving her hands near her waist and under her jacket.

Long-term drug investigation ends with drug charges for 2 men

If a person is accused of being involved with drugs, the repercussions for getting convicted can land him or her into a lot of trouble with the law. Massachusetts authorities do what they can to keep the streets clean because of all of the dangers associated with drugs, such as health conditions and even death. Though most media outlets do their best to cover the most accurate story possible, there are occasions in which the whole story does not come out. Being faced with drug charges is a very serious matter and the person being charged should be tried in a court of law rather than in the court of public opinion.

After a recent six-month investigation, authorities broke up an alleged drug ring, resulting in the arrest of two men. One of the men owned a hauling business and he was allegedly using his vehicles to transport heroin and cocaine. According to an affidavit, the drugs were stashed in secret compartments inside the vehicles. A witness claimed that the man had been engaged in this activity for over seven years.

Woman pulled over for drunk driving ends up with more charges

After a long day or a lot of stress, any person would be in a hurry to get home. Any Massachusetts driver could easily stop watching his or her speedometer and go a little quicker than what is allowed. The police have a responsibility to watch the roads for any type of infraction such as speeding or drunk driving, and they do their best to keep the roads safe at the first sign of danger.

After what a woman claimed was a long day, she was pulled over by the police. Allegedly she was driving after midnight and was going faster than the posted speed limit. Reportedly, the police caught up to her when she had slowed down a little near an on-ramp and then began to driver faster again. Police claim that she was driving near 100 mph, but she was eventually pulled over.

Man charged with a sex crime after using an online dating site

Online dating is something that is taken lightly by many people and sometimes these chance encounters may end up differently than both people had expected. After visiting someone in person from an online dating site, a Massachusetts woman claims she was the victim of a sex crime. She alleges that after two months of chatting back and forth over the website, she believed that she was going to be meeting up with someone whom she had known in junior high school. The two eventually decided that it would be a good idea to get together in person.

The woman alleges that she met the man in a local restaurant and afterward, he supposedly asked her to watch a movie at his residence. She claims that she was comfortable accepting the offer because of mutual acquaintances. However, once she arrived at his home, she alleges that she was raped. She put a restraining order in place and got in contact with the police.

Woman faces child endangerment and drunk driving charges

Drivers who are careless on the road are a danger to themselves and to the other people around them, including the people inside the vehicles they are operating. If a person is under the influence, it is his or her personal responsibility to realize that he or she should not get behind the wheel. Recently, a Massachusetts woman received drunk driving charges for doing just that.

A woman and her young daughter were in the car together when she crashed into a minivan. She allegedly ran through a red light and then she hit the minivan. The van was pushed into an icy pond and partially submerged. According to a video accompanying the report, inside was a woman, her two children and a teenage friend.

2 shop owners are caught after an investigation on drug charges

One of the responsibilities of the police is to keep drugs off the streets in order to provide a safe environment for everyone. When those individuals who are selling drugs are out in the open, it may be far easier for Massachusetts authorities to catch someone on drug charges. If a person is selling inside his or her place of business, however, he or she may be much harder to catch in the act.

After an eight-month investigation of two shop owners, the search came to a head. A search warrant was served to a man who owns a market in Dorchester where police allegedly found a gambit of different illegal items, including drugs, cutting agents, a large amount of cash and firearms. All of these items were apparently confiscated by authorities.

Two men are brought up on drug charges after a train transaction

Being arrested for distributing drugs is a very serious offense accompanied by heavy repercussions. Massachusetts law enforcement has a responsibility to its residents to keep the streets clean by placing people who distribute drugs behind bars. Those who face drug charges could be paying heavy penalties and spend some time in jail for the crime.

Two men are being accused of allegedly completing a drug transaction while they were aboard a train. Detectives are claiming that they saw a drug change hands between the two men. The drug the detectives believed that they saw being exchanged was an amphetamine. Authorities say that the transaction occurred in the late afternoon when the train was pulling into the station.

State trooper is hit by someone drunk driving

Law enforcement patrol the streets in an effort to keep all drivers safe. That job does have some risk involved when working on a Massachusetts highway. One of the ways that a trooper can be injured while doing his or her job is when a person is speeding. Another potential way an officer can be injured is from a person who is drunk driving.

During the late evening on Feb. 10, a crew was working on some lights on the turnpike. The road was to be blocked by a state trooper so that the work could be completed. As the trooper was closing off the lane, his cruiser was hit by a car.
