CHARGE: Assault and Battery of a Police Officer and Disorderly Conduct; Clerk’s Hearing
Result: Complaint NOT to issue and matter to be dismissed!
My client was accused of assaulting a police officer on two separate occasions and causing a loud disturbance at a place of business. Allegedly, he was swearing at the police and a worker. When asked to leave, he allegedly committed two separate assault and battery offenses on the officer and had to be physically restrained by multiple officers. At a Criminal Clerk’s Hearing, I was able to convince the Clerk NOT to issue the charges and to dismiss the charges if my client stays out of trouble for six months.
