Vandalism Charge Dismissed in Kent County District Court 10/16/17

October 2017

CRIMINAL CHARGE: VANDALISM (MALICIOUS DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY)

At the Law Offices of Matthew T. Marin, Esq. Inc., we are pleased to report that the charge of vandalism (malicious destruction of property) brought against a client in the Kent District Court has been dismissed.  Our Client was involved in a verbal altercation with two individuals regarding damage to his newly installed mailbox.  According to the Police, at the conclusion of the altercation and out of frustration he used a drill bit to scrape the other party's car causing a large area of damage.

After thorough pre-trial negotiations with the prosecution for the Town, we were able to negotiate a dismissal of the vandalism charge after our Client paid the other party full restitution for the damage inflicted upon the car.   If you or a loved one is facing vandalism charges (also referred to as malicious destruction of property) in Rhode Island, give Attorney Matthew Marin a call for immediate and experienced legal advice and representation.
