Law Office of Matthew W. Peterson Secures Probation for Client Facing Life Without Parole

criminal defense attorney boston massachusetts lawyer

In April 2017, the Law Office of Matthew W. Peterson, a Massachusetts criminal defense attorney, secured probation and release for our client charged with robbery and assault.  Because of our client’s record, he was facing mandatory life without the possibility of parole if convicted.

Our client was charged with taking the wallet of the victim with a gun, then hitting the victim with a gun. We investigated the case thoroughly, securing important records and interviewing numerous witnesses.  Our defense was misidentification based on the victim identifying our client only through the news.

On the day of trial, based on our work, the prosecution decided to reduce the charge and offer probation, meaning our client was able to be released from jail and avoid prison.
