Felony count of domestic assault dropped against Kennedy

One felony count of domestic assault by strangulation was dismissed against Matthew Grant Kennedy II of Little Falls, Monday.

Kennedy, 31, was convicted of the misdemeanor domestic assault charge against him, stemming from an incident Oct. 31, 2012, when Kennedy’s girlfriend reported a domestic assault and had a bloody lip and a mark on her throat.

Kennedy was convicted of misdemeanor domestic assault and fined $385 and sentenced to 12 days stayed for two years, with credit for two days served.
