Dismissed - Domestic Vandalism Rhode Island
Our client was charged with Domestic Vandalism in Rhode Island. Rhode Island General Laws § 12-29-5, states that anyone who is convicted of a domestic violence crime must complete a batterer's intervention program and pay an additional $125 assessment. Our client was also facing potential jail time, fines and fees, probation and having a criminal record.
We did our own investigation into the matter and spoke to witnesses. As a result of the witnesses we spoke to, we were able to bring new information to the prosecutor. After speaking with the prosecutor, they agreed to dismiss the charges.
We then filed a Motion to Seal and had our client's record sealed after the dismissal.
