Here are some questions Attorney Beauchain would ask you to consider:
Did the police have reasonable suspicion to stop you!?! Did the police have probable cause to detain or search you!?! Attorney Beauchain will bring the Commonwealth to bear its burden of proof that the police had probable cause to detain and search you!
Your Fourth Amendment Constitutional right against unlawful searches and seizures may have been violated and a Motion to Suppress such evidence, if allowed, would prevent the Commonwealth from introducing such evidence at trial!
Did the police read your Miranda rights prior to custodial interrogation? Your Fifth Amendment Constitutional Right against self-incrimination may have been violated and again the Motion to Suppress, if allowed, would prevent the Commonwealth from using such statements against you!
The Declaration of the Rights of the Inhabitants of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts affords greater protections than the U.S. Constitution.
Article XII of the Massachusetts Declaration of Rights affords you even greater protection from criminal prosecution than the 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination of the U.S. Constitution:
“No subject shall be held to answer for any crimes or offence, until the same is fully and plainly, substantially and formally, described to him; or be compelled to accuse, or furnish evidence against himself. And every subject shall have a right to produce all proofs, that may be favorable to him; to meet the witnesses against him face to face, and to be fully heard in his defence by himself, or his council at his election. And no subject shall be arrested, imprisoned, despoiled, or deprived of his property, immunities, or privileges, put out of the protection of the law, exiled, or deprived of his life, liberty, or estate, but by the judgment of his peers, or the law of the land.”
Article XIV of the Massachusetts Declaration of Rights grants you greater protection than the U.S. Constitution 4th Amendment right against unlawful searches and seizures:
“Every subject has a right to be secure from all unreasonable searches, and seizures, of his person, his houses, his papers, and all his possessions. All warrants, therefore, are contrary to this right, if the cause or foundation of them be not previously supported by oath or affirmation; and if the order in the warrant to a civil officer, to make search in suspected places, or to arrest one or more suspected persons, or to seize their property, be not accompanied with a special designation of the persons or objects of search, arrest, or seizure: and no warrant ought to be issued but in cases, and with the formalities prescribed by the laws.”
