Harvard Professor Ogletree to Represent Former Mayor of Cambridge in Probation Violation Appeal

Comments (0)

Anthony Galluccio, former mayor of Cambridge and state senator, plead guilty in a DUI related accident in December.  He was sentenced to six months of home incarceration and agreed to submit random alcohol breath samples through a Sobrietor installed on his phone to prove his continued sobriety.  By January 4th, Galluccio was convicted of violating the terms of his sentence after the Sobrietor detected alcohol on his breath.  Charles Ogletree, "one of the nation's most influential lawyers and legal scholars", has agreed to represent Galluccio on his appeal.  Probation violations are difficult to defend because the standard of reasonable doubt does not apply; the judge simply has to believe that is it more likely than not that the terms of probation were violated to find the defendant guilty.
