Insufficient evidence clears student in cellphone photo case

Partner Elena Rosnov Recognized In Lawyers Weekly for her tireless work in the MA Appeals Court after successfully clearing her client, due to insufficient evidence.

Arsenault v. BHATTACHARYA, Mass: Appeals Court 2016

Reilly, Newton and Rosnov are proud to announce another successful appellate victory. Partner Elena Rosnov and Partner David Newton in collaboration successfully argued this case of first impression and in the process created new law. Our client after being the victim of medical malpractice had her case dismissed when her prior attorney failed to comply with M.G. L. c. 231, s. 60L, which requires formal notice to be sent prior to a medical malpractice lawsuit. Attorney Newton & Rosnov successfully argued that her case should be restored and the MA Appeals Court agreed.

Opiate addicts in Gloucester who come to the police station — even if they’re carrying drugs — won’t be charged with a crime. They’ll get help.

“We’re committed to the idea of attacking the demand rather than attacking the supply,” Police Chief Leonard Campanello told Boston.com.
Following dozens of overdoses in town and a Saturday forum on opiate addiction, Campanello wrote in a Facebook post that any addict who comes to police headquarters will get an “angel” to walk them down the road toward detox recovery. Even if someone walks in with needles and drugs, they won’t be charged, he said.

Programs like these are a commendable effort at fighting the tide against drug addiction. However, this program is not available to people who are arrested by the Gloucester Police Department. If you find yourself charged with a crime, engage a criminal defense attorney early.
