No Complaint Issued at Magistrates Hearing in Massachusetts For Assault and Battery
Our client received an Application of Complaint for a Clerk Magistrate's Hearing in Massachusetts for Assault and Battery in Massachusetts which is a misdemeanor criminal offense that is punishable by up to 2 and a half years in jail. Assault and Battery can result in a criminal conviction on your record, possible probation, potential jail time and fines and fees.
At the hearing, we made arguments on our client's behalf, presented our own evidence, and explained the circumstances of what happened. As a result, the Clerk Magistrate denied the issuance of a complaint. This meant our client did not have to face the criminal charges going forward, and they did not have a criminal record from this incident.
