Man pleads no contest to assault, DUI charges


WAKEFIELD — A frail-appearing Hopkinton man had to sit as he listened to details of his no-contest plea to charges of assault and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs being discussed in 4th Division District Court Tuesday afternoon.

Albert T. Clerrico, 67, of 894 Main St., Hope Valley, was charged by Hopkinton police July 12 with domestic simple assault and/or battery, domestic disorderly conduct and refusal to relinquish a telephone. On Aug. 27, he was initially charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, first offense, blood alcohol content over .15. That charge was amended to DUI, blood alcohol content unknown, when the Hopkinton prosecutor indicated a technical problem with the chemical test to determine alcohol levels.

Clerrico had been to Hopkinton Liquor Depot in Ashaway, where he was refused service. According to police, a call was made from that establishment reporting an allegedly intoxicated man driving away.

Clerrico pleaded no contest, meaning he did not dispute the facts of either arrest.

In the DUI case, Judge Madeline Quirk sentenced him to a four-month loss of license, $400 fine, 10 hours of community service, driving school, alcohol assessment and treatment if necessary, and a mental health evaluation.

In the domestic case, police agreed to drop the domestic refusal to relinquish a telephone and domestic disorderly conduct. He pleaded no contest to the domestic simple assault and/or battery charge and was sentenced by Quirk to one-year probation, having a previous charge of bothering a flight attendant on his record, according to the town prosecutor. He was issued a no-contact order with the victim and ordered to pay court fines and assessments.
