Domestic Assault and Disorderly Conduct Charges Dismissed in Providence County District Court on 7/19/2023

July 2023


In a recent legal case victory, Attorney Angelica Bovis of the Marin, Barrett, and Murphy Law Firm successfully navigated a challenging case involving charges of Domestic Assault and Domestic Disorderly Conduct. The charges were filed by the Pawtucket Police Department and were brought before the Providence County District Court.

The case revolved around a domestic dispute that unfolded within the client's household. During an argument between the client and his wife regarding a past relationship, law enforcement was summoned to the residence. Consequently, the client was taken into custody, facing allegations of Domestic Assault and Domestic Disorderly Conduct. The situation was further complicated as all three children present at the scene made statements unfavorable to the client.

From the outset, Defense Attorney Angelica Bovis took a comprehensive approach to protect her client's rights and interests. Recognizing the potential ramifications of the charges, she immediately advised the client to engage in anger management counseling while the case was pending. This strategic move underscored the client's commitment to addressing the underlying issues and facilitated a more favorable resolution.

Upon the completion of anger management counseling, despite the initial reluctance of the prosecution to dismiss the charges, Attorney Bovis put forth an unwavering defense. She prepared diligently for a potential trial, ensuring that the client's case was presented comprehensively and compellingly.

Prior to the commencement of the trial, Attorney Bovis's dedication and strategic defense approach yielded a remarkable outcome. The prosecution opted to dismiss both charges against the client. This success signifies the significance of a tailored legal defense that combines diligent preparation, strategic counseling, and resolute advocacy. Additionally, the case underscores the Marin, Barrett, and Murphy Law Firm's commitment to delivering favorable outcomes for clients while protecting their rights and future prospects.
