Domestic Assault Charges Dismissed in Providence District Court on 2/26/20

February 2020


Marin and Barrett, Inc. is extremely pleased to report that charges of domestic assault and domestic disorderly conduct against our client in Providence County District Court have been dismissed.  The police were dispatched to a report of two college students fighting.  The Police located two uninvolved roommates who reported that our client had repeatedly assaulted the victim over the course of twenty minutes.  After speaking with everyone involved and receiving conflicting stories, the police decided to charge our client with domestic assault and disorderly conduct.

Once we were hired to defend our client, we began our independent investigation.  This included speaking with the independent witnesses, the victim, and the school administration about the allegations.  After numerous conferences with the Prosecutor and a thorough hashing out of all of the evidence, the charges were dismissed in their entirety and ultimately sealed from our client's record.  If you or a loved one is facing a domestic violence charge in Rhode Island, give the experienced criminal defense attorneys at Marin and Barrett, Inc. a call for immediate and experienced legal advice and criminal defense representation.
