Commonwealth v. Julio Ruiz
Whether a defendant, sentenced to a term of incarceration with probation "from and after," may be sentenced for an alleged violation of the probationary non-contact order that occurred while the defendant was incarcerated and before the probationary term was in effect.
Interested parties may file their briefs in the Office of the Clerk for the Commonwealth, John Adams Courthouse, Suite 1-400, Pemberton Square, Boston MA 02108-1724 (Telephone 617-557-1020). Parties filing amicus briefs are expected to comply with the requirements of Rules 17, 19 and 20 of Mass. Rules of Appellate Procedure. Amicus briefs, to assist the court, should focus on the ramifications of a decision and not solely on the interests of the parties filing such briefs.
