January 2021


The attorneys at Marin & Barrett, Inc. are are again happy to report the reduction of a second offense domestic assault and battery charge in the Newport District Court and the dismissal of domestic disorderly conduct charges.  Police officers in Newport County received a call of a couple that had just left a bar involved in a physical altercation on the sidewalk.  Officers responded to find the street to find the alleged victim on the sidewalk injured.  After a brief investigation, the officers arrested our client on domestic assault and disorderly conduct charges. 

Fighting cases during Covid has been difficult on everyone and this case was no different.  Without consistent court dates it can be challenging to argue your case to a prosecutor or a judge.  Nevertheless, we were able to communicate with the prosecutor effectively, relay our defense, and make a case for a reduction of the domestic assault and battery charge and dismissal of the domestic disorderly conduct charge prior to trial.  If you or a loved one is facing criminal charges in Rhode Island, give Attorney Matthew Marin at Marin and Barrett, Inc. a call for immediate and experienced legal advice and representation.
