Commonwealth v. A.T. – Malicious Destruction of property

10/23/13

Brighton District Court

Boston Police

– Client arrested after police witness him smashing a door to an apartment building. Attorney Seed is able to convince the prosecution and judge that client was standing up for a young woman who had just been assaulted down the street. Client had witnessed a young man punch the victim in the face and run off. Client chased the perpetrator into the apartment building but was stuck in the lobby behind the locked door. Due to his efforts to assist the victim and his willingness to pay for the broken door, the commonwealth agrees to dismiss the case outright, thus saving the client from having a felony on his clean record.
