Just spent my morning in the Chelsea District Court just to prove to that a Salvadoran passport is not in fact an "RMV Document" produced by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles as enumerated in Mass. General Laws Chapter 90 Second 24B


You might think the Commonwealth would have agreed three hearings ago that a Salvadoran passport isn't a Massachusetts RMV document and that the officer had made an obvious charging error.

You might think that.
IMO the problem here isn't malice, but neglect. It's the prevailing mentality from both courts and prosecutors that a police officer's factual basis for a criminal charge--even one as clearly erroneous as this was--can only be challenged w/a formal written motion and hearing.

Imagine if you told me that my shoelace was untied and I responded that I was going to need documentary evidence of your claim. That's pretty much how boneheaded this was
