Where to Go to Court After a Stoughton Arrest

Massachusetts criminal trials are primarily heard by district court judges. There are 63 district courts scattered across the state. Each district court serves a handful of cities. If you were arrested for a crime in Stoughton, Avon, Canton or Sharon, the Stoughton District Court will be where your trial will be held.

The courthouse is located at:

1288 Central Street
Stoughton, MA 02072

You can also reach the court clerk by phone at 781-344-2131.

The courthouse provides free parking to all defendants as well as friends and family members. You can also get to the Stoughton District Court by taking the Providence/Stoughton Line of the MBTA to the Stoughton Station. However, it’s still about a mile walk from the station to the courthouse.

What to Do After Getting Arrested in Stoughton

After being arrested and charged with a crime, you may not know what to do or where to turn for help. The criminal justice system is not exactly set up for defendants to effectively handle their cases on their own. However, one thing you can do is request a copy of the police report generated after your arrest. Police reports contain some basic information about an arrest, such as the officers involved and a bare-bones summary of the crimes they claim you committed. To get a copy of a Stoughton police report, you can reach out to the local police department at:

Stoughton Police Department

26 Rose Street
Stoughton, MA 02072

However, a police report only provides limited information. Sooner rather than later, you should contact an experienced Norfolk County criminal defense attorney to review the full discovery pertaining to your case.
