Incorporated in 1640, the town of Braintree was named after the English town of Braintree. It was made up of land that was later split into Randolph, and Quincy, as well as parts of Weymouth and Milton, Massachusetts. The "North Precinct" of Braintree was the birthplace of former presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams, as well as statesman John Hancock. General Sylvanus Thayer, the "Father of West Point” was also born in Braintree.
Braintree was the location of the infamous 1920 murders that led to the trial of Sacco and Vanzetti in nearby Dedham. It was the retirement home of Thomas Watson, the co-inventor of the telephone."Have You Been Arrested Or Are You Afraid You Might Be?

A person can be charged with any crime from A to Z, and over 20 years’ time, our office has defended clients on just about every Massachusetts crime that exists. Here’s just one of the more common scenes that undoubtedly has happened at least once to everyone reading this page: You go to a store, make a purchase for a fairly expensive product, and write a check for the amount of the purchase. It turns out, though, that you didn’t have enough money in your account to cover the purchase. You overdrew your bank account, with absolutely no intention to de-fraud the store. Unwittingly, you passed a bad check in Braintree, Massachusetts.
Massachusetts law realizes that a person can innocently write a check with insufficient funds on account to pay the check, while never having the intent to commit fraud. The legal statute allows a person two days from the date of being notified by his or her banking institution, that insufficient funds exist to honor the check, to deposit the funds necessary to pay the check amount. However, if the person who wrote the check does not deposit sufficient funds to cover that check within two days, it is considered "prima facie evidence" that the person who wrote the check had the intent to defraud. A lot of people can easily “miss” or overlook a notice from your bank that your account has insufficient funds to cover a check that was written against it.
In that circumstance, you could find out you are being charged with the crime of Massachusetts larceny by check. While it is possible that police could arrest you at your home once the store presses charges, it is more likely that you would receive a notice in the mail from the local court that has jurisdiction over the store location, that a Clerk-Magistrate’s hearing, or Show-Cause hearing, has been scheduled to determine if you should be charged with this offense.
