CHARGE: Assault and Battery (2 Counts); Clerk’s Hearing and Liquor Commission Hearing
Result: Charges not to issue and no Liquor License Restriction after full hearing
The police investigated a complaint that my client had used mace as a weapon against unruly patrons at a bar he owns on two separate occasions. At the hearing, I was able to convince the Clerk NOT to issue any charges as the use was justified. The town proceeded with a Liquor Commission Hearing and we secured enough votes to leave his license intact and without any restrictions.
