FELONY ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON - AMENDED TO SIMPLE ASSAULT (FILING)
Providence Police responded to the Client's home after reports of a intoxicated male in possession of a firearm. During their investigation, the police interviewed witnesses and subsequently charged the Client with possession of firearm while under the influence and felony assault with a dangerous weapon - to wit - a firearm. Attorney Ken Barrett highlighted the absence of evidence for the possession of a firearm while intoxicated and negotiated an amendment of the felony assault with a deadly weapon to a simple assault, which resulted in an agreement to a one year filing for the Client.
