April 2020


Marin and Barrett, Inc. is extremely pleased to report that charges of domestic assault and domestic vandalism conduct against our client in Washington County District Court have been dismissed.  The Police Report in the case indicated that our Client's roommate reported to the local Police Station to report an assault.  The Police observed injuries to the roommate that were consistent with an altercation and they attempted to contact our Client but were unable to reach him.  Based solely on the report made by our Client's roommate, the Police located our client and arrested and charged him with domestic simple assault and domestic vandalism.

Once we were hired to defend our client, we began our independent investigation.  This included speaking with the Client at length about what happened and then reaching out and having a conversation with our Client's roommate.  After conferences with the Prosecution and a thorough review of the evidence and witnesses statements, the charges against the Client were completely dismissed.  If you or a loved one is facing a domestic violence simple assault 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.
