Criminal Case: Clerk Magistrate Hearing for Leaving the Scene of an Accident with Property Damage: Case Dismissed.
Police were dispatched to a motor vehicle accident in Foxboro, Massachusetts. Though the crash involved two motor vehicles, there was only one on scene when police arrived. This vehicle, occupied by a man, his wife and two children, was struck from behind by another motorist who fled the scene. The accident caused physical injuries and property damage, consisting of body damage, a smashed back window, and destruction of the family’s bicycles that were on a bike rack. Police searched their database and identified the registered owner as the man’s wife. Police tracked down the fleeing motorist who admitted that he caused the accident and fled the scene. Based upon these findings, police filed an application for criminal complaint against the man in Wrentham District Court. The man hired the Massachusetts Criminal Defense Law Office of John L. Calcagni III, Inc. to defend him at a Clerk Magistrate Hearing. Following oral argument in the man’s defense, the Clerk-Magistrate elected to deny the Foxboro Police application and not authorize the issuance of a criminal complaint.
