Client found NOT GUILTY of domestic assault and battery

On Friday October 27th a jury in the Lowell District Court returned not guilty verdicts for a client accused of assault and battery on her soon to be ex-husband and sister-in-law. It is common to see divorce proceedings spill over into the criminal court. Unfortunately sometimes people make false accusations in order to gain leverage in the divorce proceedings. The jury must have thought so too and found my client not guilty.
