She was injured in such a way that her hand required surgery. The Defendant was held without bail, pursuant to the Dangerous Statute (58A). After the 58A hearing was held, Attorney Barabino was retained. Attorney Barabino sought to have the prior judge reconsider a prior decision and that decision was reversed.

Eventually, a decision was made by the District Attorney to Nolle Prosse -which means to dismiss the charges and close the case with no admission or wrongdoing of any criminal act.
