Assault and Battery, DISMISSED

August 10th 2015
Assault and Battery
A retired, married client with no previous record was accused of assault and battery on his wife. There had been recent tension in the marriage and an argument became slightly physical with unpermitted touching. No injuries or marks. The touching was brief and modest. After several court dates and a full evaluation of the evidence collected, the Commonwealth agreed that there was no case if the wife asserted her marital privilege. On today's date, she asserted that right and the case was dismissed.
RESULT: Charge of Assault and Battery, DISMISSED
