Two Domestic Violence Cases Dismissed in the Kent County District Court in April 2022
CASE # 1 - CHARGES: (1) DOMESTIC ASSAULT AND BATTERY, (2) DOMESTIC DISORDERLY CONDUCT
CASE # 2 - CHARGE: CRIMINAL VIOLATION OF A NO CONTACT ORDER
Attorney Nicholas Parrillo with the law firm Marin and Barrett, Inc. is pleased to report a positive resolution to not one, but two separate criminal offenses. Our client was charged with domestic assault and domestic disorderly conduct after a fight with his spouse. Prior to hiring our office for representation, he appeared in court for his arraignment only to be arrested again in the courtroom for allegedly violating the no contact order. Now facing an additional criminal offense, as well as a new bail violation, he called us for help.
After taking the case we were able to speak with two separate witnesses and get on track towards a resolution. We were first able to have the bail violation removed and have the No Contact Order charge dismissed. We then had to convince a separate prosecutor that a dismissal was the correct outcome and, after speaking with the witness himself, agreed. While it wasn't a smooth process for the client, at the end of the day he wound up having all of the charges dismissed without spending a single day in jail.
RESULTS: ALL CHARGES DISMISSED on April 26th and April 29th, 2022
