Furthur Update On Chris Markey Assault
The assault case of State Representaive Chris Markey against David Oliveira has taken another turn.
According to Dartmouth Police Chief Timothy Lee, the case has been sent to a regional judge in Brockton for assignment. The action was taken because of Markey's relationship with New Bedford District Court as a former Bristol County prosecutor. Markey called Dartmouth Police Thursday requesting a clerk-magistrate's hearing. Chief Lee says they have forwarded it to the court. Oliveira's attorney, Frank Camera, says his client "regrets" what happened and wishes Markey a speedy recovery although he stopped short of admitting guilt.
