Felony Assault and Battery Charge Results in Deferred Sentence on 7/27/2020

July 2020


CASE OVERVIEW:  Marin & Barrett, Inc. is extremely pleased to report that a domestic felony assault and battery charge against a Client in Providence Superior Court has been resolved through a disposition that does not result in a felony conviction.  Our Client had been charged with domestic felony assault and battery after allegedly stabbing her boyfriend.  Based on the nature of the charge, if convicted she faced a maximum sentence of 20 years in jail (ACI).

Marin & Barrett, Inc. was able to assist the client into successfully completing a rehab program and educating the prosecution and the Judge that the alleged incident was precipitated by a combination of severe prior trauma against our Client and substance abuse problems.  Based on our arguments, we were able to successfully negotiate a resolution of the case that resulted in a very favorable outcome.  The Client entered into a Deferred Sentence Agreement with the Court for three years with substance abuse counseling.  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.  The domestic disorderly conduct charge was dismissed.  At the completion of the three year deferred sentence, the Client is eligible to have the case completely expunged from her record.

CASE RESULT: CASE AMENDED TO NON-DOMESTIC FELONY ASSAULT AND SENTENCING DEFERRED FOR THREE YEARS; the Client must stay out of trouble for 3 years and complete a substance abuse treatment program.

Practice area(s): Criminal Defense

Court: Providence Superior Court
