For the Commonwealth: ADA Nick Freeman

For the Commonwealth highlights the important work our prosecutors are doing to secure justice in specific cases brought by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office. Today we highlight the work of ADA Nick Freeman of our Family Violence and Sexual Assault Unit.

Thanks to ADA Nick Freeman of the office’s Family Violence and Sexual Assault Unit for securing justice in a case involving an 11-year-old male victim. The victim’s mother assaulted her son, and lied about it in a statement, on multiple occasions because she thought he took her drugs. On multiple occasions she stomped on his stomach, hit him with a belt, and choked him. The defendant was found guilty of Aggravated Assault, Strangulation, Simple Assault, and related charges. Sentencing is set for March before Judge Mia Roberts-Perez.
