My question involves criminal law for the state of: Massachusetts. There is a prior record of OUI, 2-3 assaults, where one assault was served in prison for three months in 2006. These altercations were within the past 5 years and with the same individuals. The latest assault was one week ago, arrest was made and bail set at $1,000. What could happen to this individual as far as conviction goes. Also, if the individual states she falsely reported the assault, as to say nothing happened. What will happen to her? Could the case be dismissed?
