Domestic Violence Charges Dismissed in the Providence County District Court on 1.11.2021

January 2021


The attorneys at Marin & Barrett, Inc. are are again happy to report the full dismissal for a client charged with domestic assault and disorderly conduct.  Police officers in Providence County received a call of a couple in their apartment complex arguing and fighting.  Officers responded to find the residence in disarray and blood all over the kitchen.  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 dismissal prior to trial.  Ultimately the city dropped the charges in full allowing our client to clear his criminal record and return home.  If you or a loved one is facing criminal charges in Rhode Island, give Attorney Nicholas Parrillo at Marin and Barrett, Inc. a call for immediate and experienced legal advice and representation.
