Not Guilty After Trial - Assault and Battery on an Intellectually Disabled Person

September 2019

Our client was charged with Assault and Battery on an Intellectually Disabled Person, Assault and Battery by Means of a Dangerous Weapon and Assault And Battery. Our client decided to exercise their right to a trial in front of a jury of their peers. At the trial, the Commonwealth was required to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the charges did in fact happen. The trial lasted three days. The first day, we argued Motions in Limine which are evidence rulings prior to the trial beginning. The next two days were opening statements, testimony and closing statements. The prosecution called 4 witnesses to testify. We called 4 witnesses to testify. Eventually the jury came back with Not Guilty verdicts on all charges.
