Assault and Battery: Continued Without a Finding for 6 Months
A man who attended an Ozzie Osbourne concert was arrested by police and transported to the psychiatric unit at a local hospital after becoming belligerently drunk and threatening to harm himself. The man refused to stay in his room after being asked by hospital staff multiple times. Ultimately, he emerged one final time and tossed a cup of urine onto a security guard resulting in the urine covering her head, shoulders and going inside of her mouth. Multiple staff members responded to restrain the man.
Attleboro Police were called and responded to the hospital resulting the man’s criminal charge for Assault and Battery. In response, the man hired Massachusetts Assault and Battery Defense Attorney, John L. Calcagni III and his team, to defend him in this matter. Attorney Calcagni and his associates appeared on the man’s behalf for several pretrial conferences, took a hard look at the evidence, and engaged in substantial negotiations with the District Attorney’s (DA) Office.
After preparing a mitigation packet and advocating for leniency in response to the man’s uncharacteristic behavior, the Commonwealth agreed to continue the man’s case without a finding for a period of 6 months. Once this 6-month period of administrative probation expires, the man’s case will be dismissed and be immediately eligible to be sealed and removed from the man’s record.
