Boston Defense Attorneys Handling Violent Crime Cases
Boston Violent Crime Defense Lawyer
Seldom are violent crimes handled by the police in the manner portrayed in television and film dramas. Due to limited manpower and budget restrictions, police and prosecutors do not always pursue alternative suspects, verify or disprove alibis, nor interview witnesses who could provide exculpatory testimony. As experienced Boston violent crimes defense lawyers − and former prosecutors − attorney Yannetti and his associates are well-equipped to put the prosecution on the defensive by identifying and exploiting their failure to track down alternative suspects, pursue leads and properly handle evidence.

Assumptions and Cut Corners − Why Few Cases Are “Open and Shut”
Police investigators and prosecutors often work from the assumption that most victims of violent crimes know their attacker. As a result, early on in an investigation, attention is typically focused on spouses, family members, friends, neighbors, romantic interests and co-workers. Unfortunately, circumstantial evidence or a weak alibi can result in a rush to judgment when police and prosecutors are overburdened and don’t have the time or resources needed to verify every bit of information or evidence.
