Domestic Violence Charges Dismissed Prior to Trial in the Kent County District Court on 9/14/2020

September 2020


The criminal defense attorneys at Marin & Barrett, Inc. are pleased to report the dismissal of domestic violence charges that had been brought against a Client prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The case arose when the local Police were called to a domestic disturbance by a 911 call from the complaining witness.  When the Police arrived, they conducted an investigation that lead them to charge our Client for allegedly yelling at the complaining witness and hitting him while our Client was driving.  Based on statements made by the complaining witness, the local police then arrested our Client and charged her with the misdemeanor charges of domestic disorderly conduct and domestic simple assault.

After we were hired to defend our Client, we began by conducted our own defense investigation.  After speaking with all parties involved, we decided that the best course of action was to pass the case for trial and confront the complaining witness.  Due to the shutdown of the Court due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Client's trial date was significantly delayed.  As the Courts re-opened in September, we were able to expedite have our Client's trial date scheduled and on the day of trial the Prosecution, after speaking with the complaining witness, moved to dismiss all charges against our Client ensuring that she maintained his clean criminal record.  If you or a loved one has been charged with domestic violence crimes in Rhode Island, contact the experienced domestic violence defense attorneys at Marin and Barrett, Inc. today for a no obligation defense strategy session and case consultation.
