A&B Dismissed Pre-Arraignment, No Record

June 8, 2020
Assault and Battery
Client was a young student with no criminal record accused of assaulting and battering another person. The victim had injuries sufficient enough to require medical attention. The district attorney initially declined plan for diversion, but Attorney Barabino and client established a plan to advocate for judicial diversion by thoroughly presenting client's background and history to the court. In the end, the district attorney and the court accepted the plan. Client enrolled in anger management, saw a psychiatrist, went to therapy, and paid restitution in exchange for case being dismissed after a period of time. Because case was dismissed prior to arraignment, client will have no criminal record of the event impacting future education and/or employment opportunities.
RESULT: Case Dismissed Pre-Arraignment, No Criminal Record
