OLD MASSACHUSETTS WARRANT CANCELLED

In 1988 CC was arrested in Lowell, MA on drug charges. While CC’s drug case was pending in Court, CC was arrested for being a fugitive from justice on a Warrant for Rape out of Texas. CC was returned to Texas to face the Rape charge and was told that his drug case in MA would be closed. CC was convicted in Texas of the rape and was sentenced to 16 years in Prison to be followed by 50 years of probation with an electronic monitoring bracelet. CC served his 16 years in prison and was released in 2006. He has been on probation in Texas since 2006 and is doing incredibly well. Upon his release from prison he got a job as a janitor and in four years he has become a plant manager. He has absolutely no probation violations. In early November 2010 CC went to renew his Texas Driver’s License but was told he had an outstanding warrant in Massachusetts that was causing his right to operate in Massachusetts to be suspended which in turn was causing his reight to drive in Texas to be placed in nonrenewal status. CC was told he would have to go to MA to get the warrant cleared up. Only problem is that CC cannot leave the State of Texas because he is on Probation for a sex offense. Without the license CC cannot get back and forth to work. On Friday, November 12, 2010 CC retained Attorney Joshua Lewin of Lewin & Lewin. Attorney Lewin went to Lowell District Court that same day and filed the appropriate papers to have CC’s 1988 drug case put on the Court list for Tuesday, November 16, 2010. The drug case was in default warrant status. On November 16, 2010 Attorney Lewin appeared in Lowell District Court; the DA’s Office at first did not want to let go of this 22 year old drug case. After some argument and persuasion the DA agreed to dismiss the case. The Judge ordered the case dismissed and the warrant recalled. Attorney Lewin left the District Court and went to the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) with a copy of the Notice of Warrant Cancellation. Attorney Lewin had a hearing at the RMV and the restriction against CC’s driving privileges was lifted. The next day CC went to the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles and was able to renew his Texas license.
