indicted for witness tampering

Summary: Lawyer Timothy Flaherty has been indicted for witness tampering.

Boston defense attorney Timothy Flaherty, 50, has been indicted for tampering with a witness in a possible federal civil rights case. Upon defending a client accused of assaulting a man and yelling anti-Muslim slurs, Flaherty is accused of contacting the victim, apologizing for his client, and telling him to refuse to cooperate further with prosecutors on the case.

Flaherty, son of former House speaker Charles Flaherty, further met with the victim, the indictment alleges, giving him $2,500 not to testify. He also instructed the man to tell the Middlesex District Attorney’s office “I have no interest in this. I’d have to come to court, I really don’t want anything to do with it. Um, you know the guy had a bad day and I’m just not going to testify.”

Flaherty could face up to 20 years in prison, and a fine of $250,000, if convicted of tampering with the client. His lawyer, Thomas Butters, did not return a phone call for further comments.

“The alleged actions run counter to Attorney Flaherty’s well known reputation as a skilled trial lawyer,” said Martin Healy, chief legal counsel for the Massachusetts Bar Association.
