Possession of Heroin and Possession with Intent to Distribute Heroin: Continued Without a Finding.

Drug & Narcotics Offenses

Police executed a search warrant of a man’s home as part of a narcotics investigation. Once inside, they discovered multiple glassine baggies containing heroin that were packaged for distribution. Police also discovered packaging materials, a digital scale, a ledger and multiple cellphones all believed to relate to heroin distribution. A further search of the apartment yielded discovery of six types of controlled substance pills for which the occupant did not have a valid prescription. The man was subsequently arrested and charged with Possession of Class A, B and E Substances, as well as Possession of Heroin and Possession with Intent to Distribute Heroin. He retained Massachusetts Criminal Defense Lawyer, John L. Calcagni III, to defend him. After attending several pretrial conferences and filing motions on the man’s behalf, Attorney Calcagni ultimately negotiated a disposition that resulted in dismissal for many of the charged offenses and a Continuation Without a Finding (CWOF) for 12 months for the heroin offenses. Providing the man is not charged with a new offense during this time, the charges will be dismissed at the end of the CWOF period.
