Legal Questions & Answers


A:
Generally, in Massachusetts, it is a hearing before the Clerk Magistrate or Assistant Clerk Magistrate of a District Court. The hearings are most often held in a room around a conference table or attendees sit across from the Magistrate’s desk. All witnesses are sworn. When you challenge a speeding ticket, the only police witness is the department court representative of the day – not the officer who wrote the ticket. The police evidence will consist of the officer reading the speeding ticket. This reading, by the police, will be considered the presentation of a prima facie case to the Magistrate that the speeding offense occurred. After the police have read the ticket, you get to testify. The evidentiary standard for a civil speeding violation is low. Speeding, as a civil infraction, is a general intent violation. Unfortunately for you (but fortunately for the rest of us), if “you dun it”, “you dun it”. The police do not have to prove that you knowingly exceeded the speed limit. The fact that you were speeding is enough for the Magistrate to rule against you.




A:
In Massachusetts, a continuance without a finding, or CWOF, is one manner of resolving a criminal complaint against a Defendant. A CWOF is an agreement between the Prosecutor and Defendant that the Prosecutor can demonstrate sufficient facts to the Court that the Defendant engaged in the alleged criminal activity. In return for this plea, the Court will continue the matter without rendering a verdict and instead impose conditions upon the Defendant to follow for a certain period of time. If the Defendant complies with the terms of the CWOF, the matter against him or her will be dismissed by the Court.
