Domestic Assault Charges Dismissed in Providence District Court on 6/4/2020

June 2020


Marin and Barrett, Inc. is extremely pleased to report that charges of domestic assault and domestic disorderly conduct against our client Washington County District Court have been dismissed.  The Police were dispatched to a residence for the report of a couple fighting.  A neighbor reported hearing what she thought was an argument, only to look outside and allegedly see our client strike the other party.  The officers on scene conducted their investigation, concluded that our client was the primary aggressor, and arrested him.

Once we were hired we got to work getting the police reports, speaking with the parties involved, and trying to coordinate a defense.  Notwithstanding the Court being largely shut down due to COVID-19, we were able to coordinate with the town and the alleged victim in the case, and ultimately were able to secure a dismissal of all charges against our client. 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.
