My name is Michael J. Zarrella, Esq I have been a successful criminal defense attorney for sixteen years with a primary concentration in the area of DWI/DUI, felonies and misdemeanors. I have aggressively defended all varieties of criminal cases from minor traffic offenses to serious capital offenses. I started this blog to help keep people informed of the present state of criminal and DUI law in the State of Rhode Island.
Rhode Island Criminal Defense Attorney Michael J. Zarrella announces that he has started 2013 with a NOT GUILTY Verdict on behalf of a client facing 2nd degree child molestation. The three day trial began on January 8, 2013 in Providence Superior Court and on Friday January 11, 2013 the twelve member jury rendered a NOT GUILTY verdict on behalf of his client. This verdict follows a successful 2012 in which Attorney Zarrella obtained three not guilty jury verdicts in felony cases.
