Domestic Violence Charges Dismissed in Kent County District Court on March 20th, 2023
(1) DOMESTIC ASSAULT AND BATTERY
(2) DOMESTIC DISORDERLY CONDUCT
Attorney Kensley Barrett of the Marin and Barrett Law Firm successfully defended a case involving a client charged with domestic assault and battery and domestic disorderly conduct. In March 2023, the Warwick Police Department charged the client following a reported incident at a Warwick residence.
Attorney Barrett promptly contacted the Warwick Police Department to obtain a copy of the police report and reached out to the complaining witness to ascertain what had happened during the incident. Marin & Barrett was able to obtain an affidavit of non-prosecution signed by the complaining witness. Simultaneously, they enrolled the client in a four-hour anger management class.
On the first court date, Marin & Barrett provided both the affidavit of non-prosecution and the anger management completion certification to the prosecution. The case was continued for one week and was subsequently dismissed. As a result, the client avoided a domestic violence conviction, mandatory domestic violence classes, and had the case sealed from their record.
CASE RESULTS: ALL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CHARGES DISMISSED on March 20th, 2023.
