Assault and Battery Cases involving a domestic partner will likely be charged under the domestic violence statute. Such a charge under the domestic violence statute will include:
- A Six hour delay in release after arrest for a domestic assault and battery charge;
- A three hour delay in arraignment from the time the criminal complaint is signed;
- Bail considerations that include safety determinations for alleged victims;
- Entry of the accused’s name into a statewide database.
Where the impact of assault and battery cases is so severe, it is important to contact an Attorney who has the experience defending such charges. Contact Attorney Shane W. Surrette, at (774) 364-4605 or at [email protected] today.
