Judge Holds Three Domestic Violence Defendants During Presentments

Judge Judith Pipe held three domestic violence defendants and released three others during presentments on July 15.

A total of 29 defendants were brought before the court.

One domestic violence defendant is charged with simple assault and attempted threats to do bodily harm. Judge Pipe decided to hold the defendant based on his criminal history, which she says includes “serious robbery charges” as far back as 2012.

Another domestic violence defendant is charged with simple assault. He is also charged with violating a Civil Protection Order (CPO), which prompted Judge Pipe to hold him.

The third held defendant is also charged with CPO violation for allegedly violating a stay away order in a previous domestic violence case, in which he was charged with attempted threats to do bodily harm and attempted possession of a prohibited weapon. Judge Pipe held him due to this alleged violation.

All three of these defendants are scheduled to return to court on Aug. 3. 

Judge Pipe released three domestic violence defendants, two of whom were charged with simple assault. One of them was given a no-contact order and one was given a No Harassment, Assault, Threaten or Stalk (HATS) order. The third defendant was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon but was not given any orders.

All three are scheduled to return to court on Nov. 4.
