A 22-year-old repeat domestic violence defendant was found dangerous and ordered held without bail at the conclusion of a telephonic dangerousness hearing yesterday in Attleboro District Court, Bristol County District Attorney Thomas M. Quinn III announced.
Jeremy Logan, who was already on probation for another domestic violence-related conviction from Attleboro District Court and two other cases out of Wrentham District Court, was arrested by Attleboro Police on Sunday night after received a 911 call from a neighbor at around 9:45.
Police responded to an Attleboro residence and located the victim, who was visibly upset and shaking. The victim told police that she and the defendant, who is her boyfriend, got into an argument about where to order take out food from. The victim attempted to retreat from the argument, but the defendant allegedly pushed her, began strangling her and struck her in the back. Responding officers noted redness and swelling along the victim’s back.
The defendant was arraigned on a charge of assault and battery on a family or household member on Monday, at which point prosecutors requested that he be held overnight for a dangerousness hearing.
Tuesday’s dangerousness hearing was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Natasha Acevedo and the ruling to find the defendant dangerous was issued by Judge Daniel O’Shea. The defendant will now be held in jail without bail for up to 120 days.
All defendants are considered innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
“I am pleased the court held the defendant without bail as a danger to the victim and community. The defendant clearly does not belong out on the street. He is on probation for the same conduct, not only in Attleboro, but on two other cases at another court. He can’t control himself,” District Attorney Quinn said.
