Attorney Anthony Sineni Arrested and Charged with Domestic Violence Assault and other Serious Criminal Charges

Over a wooden background there are a set if handcuffs and a wooden gavel, representing how one can benefit from calling a Portland criminal defense attorney.

Prominent local Portland criminal defense attorney, Anthony Sineni, was charged over the weekend with Domestic Violence Assault (Class D misdemeanor), 3 counts of Tampering with Evidence/Witness/Victim (Class C felony) and Theft in Excess of $10,000.00 (Class B felony). If convicted, Mr. Sineni could face as much as 16 years in prison if the sentences on all the charges were to run consecutively.

Because Attorney Sineni handles so many court appointed cases in Cumberland County, the Attorney General’s Office has agreed to prosecute the case to ensure that any appearance of impropriety is avoided. If convicted on any of these charges, it’s likely Mr. Sineni would face a period of incarceration as well as a period of probation upon release from jail.

It’s an unfortunate piece of news as Attorney Sineni is known to be a diligent and passionate criminal defense lawyer. The public just needs to avoid jumping to conclusions until all the facts are in on this case. Remember, in this country, people are presumed to be innocent unless that presumption is overcome by proof beyond a reasonable doubt.

Great group of people. Managed to get me a favorable outcome from a very bad situation. I would highly recommend this firm if you have legal troubles. Top notch performance!!

So thankful I chose this team to represent me. They’re the best, hands down. Nathan Hitchcock proved my innocence not once but TWICE, including a trial by jury. I have a family in law enforcement who told me “Bill Bly and his team are the best. If I would recommend anyone, it would be them.”
