In a recent case in Bristol County Superior Court, Attorney Grimaldi won a motion to suppress his client’s recorded statement to police in a First Degree Murder case.  

At the hearing, Attorney Grimaldi proved that State and local police violated his client’s constitutional right to remain silent when they ignored his clear refusal to answer questions and continued to interrogate him until he gave in to their demands.  

The judge’s important ruling means that the prosecution would be barred from presenting the client’s recorded statement trial.

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.
