Attorney Grimaldi Wins Suppression of Identification of Client in First Degree Murder Case
In a recent case in Middlesex Superior Court, Attorney Grimaldi won a motion to suppress an identification of his client by a key witness in a First Degree Murder case.
At the hearing, Attorney Grimaldi proved that, even though the police played a limited role in the identification, the unreliable circumstances of the identification violated “common law principles of fairness” and required suppression of the evidence.
The judge’s important ruling means that the prosecution will be barred from introducing the identification at trial; further, the witness will not be allowed to identify the client at trial.
