Boston Assault and Battery

Boston Clerk’s Hearing Report

JURISDICTION:     Boston Municipal Court

CASE NAME:

Withheld

CASE DETAILS:

The defendant was alleged to have committed the following offenses:

1. Assault and Battery

The application for the criminal complaint alleged that the defendant was involved with an ongoing dispute with a young woman.  While the defendant was at a nightclub in Boston, the application for the criminal complaint alleged that the defendant grabbed the victim by her throat, and verbally threatened the victim’s life.

Therefore, the defendant was required to attend a clerk’s hearing at Boston Municipal Court so that a clerk magistrate could determine whether probable cause existed to issue the criminal complaint for Assault and Battery.

After investigating the alleged incident and communicating with the Boston Police Department Detective that submitted the application for the criminal complaint, Massachusetts Criminal Defense Lawyer successfully argued that the criminal complaint should not issue.

DISPOSITION:

Application for criminal complaint denied.  Therefore, no record of the allegations shall appear on the defendant’s CORI.
