Investigation reveals motive for false charges; case dismissed

January 2018

January 22, 2018, Chelsea District Court case no. 1714CR00852 charging assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon; 1714CR00853 violation of a restraining order. Our client was accused of intentionally striking his roommate with a door during verbal altercation. Following his arrest, our client returns home to get clothes, and is arrested again for violating a no-contact order. Our investigation reveals that alleged victim had ongoing feud with a third roommate. Our client counseled the third roommate to contact police rather than allowing the incident to escalate. The next day, the alleged victim filed this criminal case against our client in retaliation for his siding with the third roommate. Armed with that information, we appeared for trial. After learning that we had discovered her misconduct, the alleged victim refused to come to court. Case dismissed.
