Charges/Criminal Complaint Counts:
- Open & Gross Lewd & Lascivious Conduct
Case Name: Withheld
Members of the MBTA Transit Police responded to reports of an individual acting belligerently and threatening physical harm to passengers at the Park Street T-Station. When officers responded, they observed the defendant pull down his pants and expose his genitals and buttocks in front of multiple passengers. The officers proceeded to place the defendant under arrest.
Following the booking procedure at the police station, the defendant was transported to the Central Division of the Boston Municipal Court where he was arraigned on the charge of Open and Gross Lewd and Lascivious Conduct.
Criminal Defense Attorney Vincent A. Tofani worked with the Office of the District Attorney for Suffolk County, and petitioned the Boston Municipal Court to transfer the matter to the Recovery with Justice Program. The criminal case was stayed pending mental health evaluation and follow up treatment. After successfully participating in treatment and a 12-step recovery program, the Commonwealth assented to dismissal of the criminal complaint.
