Felony Assault Charge Dismissed
at Preliminary Hearing

At a Preliminary Hearing in Aston District Court on Wednesday, MMD&C counsel successfully argued to have the felony charge of Aggravated Assault dismissed.  The client was facing a minimum sentence of 3 to 4½ years; now that the felony charge was dismissed after the hearing, he will likely only spend a month or two incarcerated on misdemeanor charges.  Obviously, the client and his family were very happy with this result.
