Disorderly Conduct and Vandalism Charges Dismissed 3/9/17
(1) DISORDERLY CONDUCT
(2) VANDALISM (MALICIOUS DAMAGE TO PROPERTY)
At the Law Offices of Matthew T. Marin, Esq. Inc., we are pleased to report that the charges of disorderly conduct and vandalism pending against a client have been dismissed. The Police had been called to a local gas station after it was reported by a clerk that our Client had entered the store, broke the Lottery ticket machine, pushed the cash register off the counter, and knocked over hat racks and candy stands. The Police observed an assortment of merchandise scattered across the store. The store clerk then pointed out our Client as the suspect who had entered the convenience store.
After extensive pre-trial negotiations with the prosecution for the City, we were able to negotiate a dismissal of both the charges that had been brought against our Client. Alcohol had played a major factor in the incident. We were able to mitigate the severity of the situation by assisting our Client into getting professional assistance and satisfying the prosecutor that our Client was not likely to reoffend. If you or a loved one is facing disorderly conduct charges in Rhode Island, give Attorney Matthew Marin a call for immediate and experienced legal advice and representation.
