Case Dropped: Accessory to Murder

John Doe was charged with Accessory to Murder arising from an alleged gang shooting in the location of Jamaica Plain. The victim was shot and killed in broad daylight and Mr. Doe was the alleged driver of the get-away car.

Veronica White and Alex Lynn of White & Associates mounted a vigorous defense in the case by litigating several complex motions, including:

  • motions to sever Mr. Doe’s case from that of his co-defendant who was charge with first degree murder,
  • a motion to suppress all evidence of Mr. Doe’s alleged gang affiliations, and
  • a motion to suppress statements obtained from the defendant.

White & Associates then conducted a meticulous investigation of the Commonwealth’s witnesses, the crime scene, and the forensic evidence in this case. This investigation questioned the Commonwealth’s ability to prove its case. Subsequently, the Commonwealth dropped the charges against Mr Doe by filing a Nolle Prosequi because it no longer had the evidence to support its charge.
