RI Criminal Defense Attorney James E. Smith is pleased to announce that after trial a Justice of the Rhode Island Superior Court dismissed a case charging client with Patient Abuse – a felony punishable by up to three years in prison.
A co-worker accused client of slapping a combative patient in the face. However, after the State of Rhode Island presented its case, we moved the court to dismiss on the grounds that the state failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that client was guilty.
The judge granted our motion and client was able to keep a health care worker license, ability to keep and maintain employment in client’s chosen field, and most importantly a clean criminal record!
