CASE OVERVIEW:  Attorney Kensley Barrett is extremely pleased to report that a domestic felony assault and battery charge against a Client in Providence Superior Court has been resolved with a non-conviction disposition.  Our Client had been charged with domestic felony strangulation, domestic simple assault, and domestic disorderly conduct after an alleged incident with his significant other.  Based on the nature of the charge, if convicted he faced a maximum sentence of 20 years in jail (ACI).

Marin & Barrett, Inc. was able to get our client into counseling and put forth and argument that the case was “overcharged”.  Based on our arguments, we were able to successfully negotiate a resolution of the case that resulted in a very favorable outcome.  The felony strangulation charge and domestic simple assault charges were dismissed, and the remaining domestic disorderly conduct charge was amended to non-domestic disorderly conduct, in which the Client was given a one-year filing.  Additionally, the Client was not required to complete domestic violence counseling nor was a domestic no-contact order issued for the protection of the victim.  At the completion of the one year filing period, the Client is eligible to have the case completely expunged from his record.

CASE RESULT: FELONY STRANGULATION AND DOMESTIC ASSAULT AND BATTERY CHARGES DISMISSED AND DOMESTIC DISORDERLY CONDUCT REDUCED TO NON-DOMESTIC DISORDERLY CONDUCT and the case was Filed for One Yearon February 12th, 2021
