Eric Bain gets favorable outcome for client in malicious punishment of a child case
Date: October 2019
Case: Malicious Punishment of a Child
Attorney: Eric W.M. Bain
Result: Eric’s client was initially arrested for Second Degree Assault, which is a felony, in Anoka County after forcibly removing a banned electronic device from his son’s jacket pocket with a knife. However, after Eric got involved, his client ended up being charged with two gross misdemeanors, Malicious Punishment of a Child and Child Neglect, and a misdemeanor Domestic Assault. Eric negotiated a resolution involving an amended charge of Contributing to the Need for County Services with a stay of adjudication. So as long as Eric’s client successfully completes probation, the case will be fully dismissed. Eric also successfully challenged frivolous restitution claims so that his client need not pay anything unnecessarily additional.
