Justia Massachusetts Supreme Court Opinion Summaries

Commonwealth v. Pinto

By
After a jury trial, Appellant was convicted of two counts of unlawful possession of a loaded firearm and one count of possession of a firearm without a license. Appellant appealed, arguing that the Commonwealth failed to demonstrate that the police had reasonable suspicion to conduct an investigatory stop of his vehicle, and therefore, the trial court erred in denying his motion to suppress. The Court of Appeals agreed with Appellant and reversed the judgments of conviction, the verdicts, and the motion to suppress, holding that the police did not have reasonable suspicion to conduct the investigatory stop.
