Massachusetts man accused of selling beer without license

The craft beer scene is experiencing a huge upswing in popularity in Massachusetts and nationwide. Whether it is an ale, a stout or a lager, beer-enthusiasts in the state are finding a greater selection of their favorite beverage than ever before.

Being charged with a crime is a difficult circumstance to be in. No matter the situation, a defendant is likely to be overwhelmed about the matter and concerned about his or her future. It can be intimidating hearing that authorities and the state have evidence against you. However, it is important for defendants to understand that this does not mean the state has a solid case. Even more so, it does not mean that a defendant does not have an ability to defend against the charges and have them dropped.
