Felony Charges Reduced in the Providence Superior Court 4/21/17

April 2017


At the Law Offices of Matthew T. Marin, Esq. Inc., we are pleased to report the positive resolution of felony charges that had been pending against a Client in the Providence Superior Court.  Our Client had been charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and felony assault on a police officer.  The charges were the result of an incident in which the Police attempted to apprehend our Client when they believed that she had been using heroin in a vehicle in Pawtucket.  The Police alleged that as she fled the scene, her vehicle struck the officer.  Fortunately, the Officer was relatively unscathed after the incident.

Our Client made significant strides in bettering herself through years of substance abuse counseling and was able to get her life back on the right track by the time the case was brought forward to the Providence Superior Court.  We were able to effectively advocate on her behalf and negotiate an outstanding resolution of the case.  The Prosecutor agreed to dismiss (drop) the felony drug possession charge and reduce the felony assault on a police officer to misdemeanor simple assault.  The misdemeanor simple assault charge was Filed for one year; meaning if our Client stays out of trouble for one year the entire case will be dismissed and expunged from her record. If you or a loved one is facing felony drug possession conduct charges or felony assault charges in Rhode Island, give Attorney Matthew Marin a call for immediate and experienced legal advice and representation.

(2) REDUCED TO MISDEMEANOR SIMPLE ASSAULT and Filed for One Year on April 21st, 2017.
