Successful Criminal Defense Verdicts

06/14/16 – Assault to intimidate, criminal harassment, and assault with a dangerous weapon, to wit, a handgun – 20-year-old New Bedford man was charged with assault to intimidate, criminal harassment, and assault with a dangerous weapon, to wit, a hand gun. Attorney Sabra filed a Motion to Dismiss the assault to intimidate charge and criminal harassment charge on the grounds that there was no probable cause for the issuance of the complaint on those counts.  After hearing, a judge granted the motion. On the charge of assault with a dangerous weapon, to wit, a hand gun, Attorney Sabra was able to get that charge reduced to simple assault which is a misdemeanor. The case was continued without a finding for 6 months to be dismissed at that time if the client had no further difficulties. He has also assessed a $50.00 victim-witness fee and a $50.00 per month administrative probation fee. As a result, the client will have no criminal record at the end of 6 months.
