Marin, Barrett, and Murphy Law Firm Again Achieves Justice: Client Acquitted of Vandalism Charges by Jury on March 20th, 2024

March 2024


In a significant legal victory, Attorney Angelica Bovis of the Marin Barrett & Murphy Law Firm successfully defended a client facing vandalism charges in Woonsocket. The case arose from an incident involving a reported disturbance and damaged car windshield, with the client accused of willfully causing the damage.

Incident Overview: The Woonsocket Police Department responded to a call at the client's residence following a disturbance report and a complaint about a broken car windshield. According to the complainant, a state constable attempting to serve court documents was involved in the altercation. Allegedly, the client blocked the constable's vehicle and shattered the back windshield when the constable attempted to leave.

Defense Strategy and Preparation: Upon engaging in the case, Attorney Bovis of Marin Barrett & Murphy conducted a thorough investigation, contacting all relevant witnesses and extensively interviewing the client to formulate a robust defense strategy. After careful deliberation, the Client opted to proceed to trial to contest the charges.

During the trial proceedings, defense counsel skillfully presented evidence, arguments, and cross examination of witnesses challenging the prosecution's case. Testimonies from the constable, the responding officer, and the client's nephew provided critical perspectives on the events in question. Defense counsel highlighted inconsistencies in the accounts and emphasized the client's position that the windshield broke inadvertently as a result of being struck by the constable's vehicle multiple times during the altercation.

Trial Outcome: Following a diligent presentation of evidence and persuasive arguments, the case proceeded to trial culminating in a significant victory for the defense. The jury carefully deliberated on the facts presented and ultimately returned a verdict of not guilty for the client on the charge of vandalism. The jury's decision underscored their determination that the act leading to the windshield damage was not willful or malicious on the part of the client.
