FALL RIVER — Jasiel Correia II's lead defense lawyer has resigned from his case.
The Herald News reports that Mark Berthiaume filed notice with the court on Tuesday that he and the law firm of Greenberg Traurig have withdrawn as Correia's counsel of record.
No reason for Berthiaume's withdrawal was provided.
