Not Guilty - First-Degree Murder
June 2017: Attorney Scapicchio secures a not guilty verdict on Murder and subsequently secures a finding of not guilty on an Unlawful Possession of a Firearm Charge. Yerri Perez was charged with murder and unlawful possession of a firearm. Attorney Scapicchio presented a defense of mistaken identity because only two of the Commonwealth's witnesses provided a general description that loosely fit Mr. Perez's description. The jury found Mr. Perez not guilty but convicted him of unlawful possession of a firearm.
After trial, Attorney Scapicchio successfully argued that the Commonwealth did not present any evidence to show that if Mr. Perez was not the shooter during the crime, that he possessed a firearm. The Court vacated Mr. Perez's conviction of possession of a firearm on those grounds.

Attorney Scapicchio provides aggressive criminal defense for individuals who are under investigation or who have been indicted for murder, firearms charges, drug trafficking offenses, armed robbery and other serious felonies. Her aggressive cross examination of Boston Police detectives has exposed a lack of police investigation which has led to several not guilty verdicts on high profile murder cases.
Attorney Scapicchio started her practice in 1991 handling both trials and post conviction appeals for serious criminal cases throughout the country. She has represented clients in the First Circuit, the Fourth Curcuit, the Ninth Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court. Her proven criminal defense strategies win motions to suppress evidence including firearms, drugs and statements to police that resulted in her clients cases being completely dismissed. Tirelessly pursuing justice for her client, Scapicchio exposed police misconduct in the Boston police department. She won a new trial, freedom and a 14 Million Dollar jury award for Shawn Drumgold who had served fifteen years on a murder conviction for a crime he did not commit.
She has appeared before the United States Supreme Court for a review of the constitutionality of the federal sentencing guidelines. Attorney Scapicchio was successful in persuading the judges to declare the federal sentencing guidelines non-mandatory for every federal criminal defendent. A local newspaper was so impressed by her argument before the Supreme Court they headlined their article "Supreme Performance". After observing her in the court room another criminal defense attorney was quoted as saying "Rose is as good as it gets in this city"!
