Part-owner of troubled Union Street bar admits she aided in the escape of the bouncer charged with killing a man outside

WCVB reports a woman who was a part owner and the manager of the Sons of Boston bar on Union Street today pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the fact to the murder of Daniel Martinez of Chicago, allegedly at the hands of the bouncer she helped escape police.

Suffolk Superior Court Judge Robert Ullman sentenced Alisha Dumeer, 35, of Everett was sentenced to three years of probation, with the first six months to be served in home confinement with a monitoring device on, court records show. She was also ordered to perform 300 hours of community service.

Police say that on March 19, 2022, bouncer Alvaro Larrama got into an argument with Martinez at the Sons of Boston entrance that ended with Larrama fatally stabbing Martinez. Police say Larrama then ran into the bar and downstairs, where Durneer helped him change his bloody clothes and run out the back.

Larrama turned himself in two days later. His trial was originally scheduled for last month, but was delayed. A new date has not yet been set.

Following the incident, the Boston Licensing Board ordered Sons of Boston shut permanently as a public menace. However, the bar's principal owners appealed to the state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission, which, in January of this year, ruled the shutdown invalid after ruling police testimony at the board's hearing was hearsay.

The bar's principal owners then re-opened the bar, but under a new name, one that would not immediately be connected with a murder.

Isn't misguided loyalty to an (alleged) murderer what got them into trouble with the old name?

Anyway, speaking of the alleged murder, but isn't it weird that one can be convicted as an accessory to a crime that hasn't gone to trial yet?

… of aiding a fugitive from justice.

She plead guilty to being an accessory to murder. The murder is already an established fact. Any other alleged participants and perpetrators are being investigated and will be charged according.
She may have plead guilty because it shows good faith intent to pleading guilty to possible further charges. She got a head start on a grab for leniency. And maybe finally feels guilty enough to admit it.

That the alleged murderer is in custody now may have helped her feel safe enough to plead guilty or at least saw the writing on the wall.

What a dolt. Or maybe she was afraid not to do what the blood soaked killer wanted her to do.
Should be an interesting trial with TV movie to follow.

...whenever it actually happens.

Unless he pleads guilty and her testimony isn’t needed.

I wonder how swift or slow the wheels of justice will turn for the victim and those who cared about him.

I had the same thought but she agreed to plead guilty to the charge so the (alleged) murderer's case doesn't need to be resolved yet.

I suppose she's weighed her options and taking her chances with the plea. But let's say the alleged murderer pleads self-defense and the jury agrees. Then this woman will have been convicted as an accessory to a crime that never happened, no?

… would be found unsafe.

But just guessing. There must be a procedure.

She wasn’t convicted. The defendant opted to plead guilty to the facts outlined in the indictment against her. Down the road, she may end up as a prosecution witness in the murder trial.

The Loyal 9 in Cambridge closed about a year and a half ago. Do the owners of the closed establishment still have any trademark rights?

Meanwhile, perhaps they sold their rights, if any.
