Assault and Battery Chapter
Client was a young man who suffered from serious long-term mental health challenges. He admittingly committed an act of animal cruelty on his girlfriend's pet. In addition, he physically struck two people and made a threat of physical harm. Attorney Barabino got client released from a custodial prison request from the Commonwealth. Client was released to a mental health hospital. After months and months of care and treatment, Attorney Barabino and a number of support staff had an evaluation conducted with a goal to prove that client was not guilty by reason of insanity. Once that expert conducted the evaluation, a trial date was set and on the trial date, no trial was held as the victims were not available. CASE DISMISSED
