Our client was charged with Domestic Assault and Battery against his wife stemming from a dispute at the marital residence. A hang up 911 call to the police resulted in the police responding to the home and interviewing the wife after our client had left the residence. After the interview, our client was arrested in a neighboring town. DCF was contacted and a 51A was filed due to the presence of children in the home when the allegations were made. Our office immediately became involved and accompanied the client to the interview with DCF which ultimately did not support any finding of neglect by our client. Through discovery and negotiations with the District Attorney’s Office, we were able to prevail on the Commonwealth to dismiss the criminal charge against our client less than 90 days after his arraignment.
