Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, NOT GUILTY

June 9th 2017
Lawrence District Court
Assault with a Dangerous Weapon
Client was a hard-working, self-employed IT consultant who was accused of spray painting political signs. The case was widely publicized and the accusation was that client was painting the signs during the early hours of the morning. Moreover, it was alleged that client tried to run over accuser, who spotted the client engaging in the spray painting, when she attempted to flee. While the client admitted to spray painting the signs, the part about running over the client was not true. A deal was attempted, to which the client would admit to the sign painting and complete fifty hours of community service and stay out of trouble for one year. However, the accusation of attempting to run over the accuser went to trial. Attorney Barabino presented reputation witnesses and others to build the defense. In the end, the court delivered a verdict of not guilty of assault with a dangerous weapon.
