Stoughton District Court
Stoughton is widely known as one of the safer areas in the greater Boston area. The rate of violent crime and property crime in Stoughton is significantly lower than in many nearby cities. However, this is not necessarily a good thing if you are facing criminal charges in Stoughton District Court, as it means prosecutors have ample time to devote as much time as they see fit to your case. As a result, it is imperative that you reach out to a dedicated Stoughton criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Attorney Patrick J. Murphy is a veteran Norfolk County criminal defense attorney with extensive, hands-on experience successfully representing clients in all types of cases. At the Law Offices of Patrick J. Murphy, it may be your future and your freedom on the line, but it’s Our Fight.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.Defending Against a Case in Stoughton District Court
One of the most important things to consider if you have a criminal case is where the case is located. Although, in theory, judges from across the state apply the laws of Massachusetts equally, judges are human. Every judge is the king or queen of their own courtroom. They decide which evidence is admissible, which arguments can be raised, and a host of other important issues throughout the trial. Thus, it is imperative that anyone facing criminal charges in Stoughton District Court work with an attorney who understands how the local courts operate.
