The Cape Cod criminal defense lawyer, James Powderly, has learned that more than 85 dolphins have stranded themselves in a shallow area of water near Cape Cod.

The cause behind the beached dolphins remains a mystery and rescue workers are trying their hardest to save as many dolphins as they can. According to the International Fund for Animal Welfare, this amount of stranded dolphins is extremely high for one time and usually is recorded throughout an entire year.

The areas of Wellfleet and Eastham were the main locations of the beachings, which has been rising by the day. By the time workers were able to reach the dolphins, 50 of them were already dead. They have been able to save 35 of them as of now, releasing them back into the Atlantic ocean and are hoping to save more as the days go on.

Three East Falmouth men broke into a motel room located in the Great Bay Motel on Teaticket Highway on a Saturday night in an attempt to commit a robbery.

The men approached a motel room wearing masks and carrying a baseball bat. Two men were inside the room and answered the door after hearing the knock. The men made their way in, but one of the residents in the room put up a fight and was able to strip off the mask of one of the assailants and also take control of the baseball bat. The man was not willing to leave without his baseball bat and so the two men held him there until police were able to arrive.

The three men admitted to the police what their efforts were targeted towards and stated who the leader of the group happened to be. They were charged with home invasion, conspiracy and attempting to commit a crime. Each were held on different bail amounts and are scheduled to arrive back in court on January 24, 2012.

Cape Cod criminal defense lawyer, James Powderly is pleased to learn that a 10-year-old Cape Cod boy has created a recording of his original music in order to fight homelessness in the area.

The fourth-grade student was determined to help people with his music and thus wrote the song, “Sweet Dreams.” This is the main song on his two-song CD that will be sold in order to benefit the Housing Assistance Corporation and Project Prevention. These non-profit organizations provide shelters to the homeless and assist in mortgage payments with families who are close to eviction.

His parents decided to pay out of pocket for the production of the CDs, which is $2.25 per CD. Each CD will be sold for $5, with all of the profits going towards the non-profits.
