Felony drug charges: school zone violations

In Massachusetts, possession with intent to distribute is a felony drug charge, regardless of the type of drug the defendant is accused of having. Those convicted of possession with intent to distribute may face up to two years in jail for a first offense. Second and subsequent offenses may carry more serious sentences depending on the type of drug and circumstances of the case. Those accused of selling or intending to distribute drugs in a school zone may be subject to sentence enhancement.

Charged with a DUI, now what?

If you recently received a DUI charge in Boston, you might be stressing about what will happen next. If you are a first-time offender with a clean criminal record, it may seem like it is the end of the world. Although you should not make light of your situation, it is important for you to remain calm. 

The National Sex Offender public website

A previous blog post discussed the Massachusetts sex offender registration requirements. Sex offenders convicted of certain offenses must comply with Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Law which requires them to report personal details such as their names, addresses, height, weight and date of birth. Sex offenders who are classified as Level 2 or 3 must also provide fingerprints and photographs taken by local police. This information is not only available to Massachusetts residents; the National Sex Offender Registry makes the information public to everyone in the United States.
