Frederick H. Johnson, 65, of 23 Wendy Lane, Richmond, was referred to Veteran’s Court on a Richmond police charge of domestic disorderly conduct. A no-contact order with the alleged victim was also dropped by Judge Madeline Quirk.

A hearing has been slated in 4th Division District Court for Nov. 7 to check on Johnson’s progress with securing an attorney and appearance in Veteran’s Court.

Ryan A. Booth, 35, of 12 Batterson Ave., Apt. B, Westerly, pleaded no contest to a Westerly police charge of domestic simple assault which occurred Thursday. Judge Quirk filed the charged for one year, meaning if he stays out of legal trouble, the incident will be expunged from his record. A charge of domestic disorderly conduct was dismissed.
