Violation of Domestic No Contact Order – Subsequent Offense: Dismissed
Violation of Domestic No Contact Order – Subsequent Offense: Dismissed.
A man could not give up on his ex-girlfriend. The couple was on and off for years and have a baby girl together. After their most recent break-up, she obtained a domestic no-contact order against him. From there, the couple continued to play cat and mouse. They would communicate with each other when convenient for the woman and even get together in person. When the relationship became sour again, she would call the police to report the man for violating the no-contact order. This vicious cycle repeated itself for many months, resulting in the man’s repeated arrests and incarceration.
Ultimately, because of the number of these related domestic violence offenses, the man was charged with the felony offense of subsequently violating the domestic restraining order on dozens of occasions by phone, text message, social media, visiting the girl’s home, following her by car, and more. After being held without bail, the man retained Rhode Island Criminal Defense Attorney, John L. Calcagni III, to defend him in this matter. As part of a pretrial agreement, Attorney Calcagni successfully negotiated with prosecutors to have multiple cases and charges of this nature against the man dismissed in Superior Court.
