Felony Domestic Strangulation Charges Result in Deferred Sentence on September 1, 2022

September 2022


Attorney Kensley Barrett with Marin and Barrett, Inc. is pleased to report that a felony charge of domestic assault by strangulation that had been pending against a Client in the Washington County Superior Court has been amended to a non-domestic felony assault and sentencing on that charge has been deferred for three years.  Additionally, a misdemeanor charge of domestic simple assault was also dismissed as part of the plea agreement.  The Client will need to stay out of trouble for three years and have no contact with the complaining witness to successfully complete the terms of his deferred sentence. This disposition means he is not required to complete the batterers intervention program and, while on his record for the three years, is not a criminal conviction.  If you or a loved one has been charged with Felony Domestic Strangulation or any other crime involving domestic violence, contact Attorney Kensley Barrett a call for immediate and experienced legal advice and representation. We are available 24/7 at 401-228-8271.
