Emerson Auvenshine (6' 2", 190 pounds) stands before Judge Shea
So here's yet another example of the state's new domestic violence law protecting the perpetrator from public scrutiny.
You may have read in the bricks and mortar media that Emerson Auvenshine, age 24, a UMass senior, was arrested by APD on Sunday for Breaking & Entering and Malicious Destruction of property valued over $250.
As a result he was immediately suspended from the UMass Hockey team, but he was on crutches in Eastern Hampshire District Court on Monday due to recent ACL knee surgery, so his athletic career at UMass was over anyway.
Now what the other media outlets did not tell you, because they can't afford to send reporters to District Court, is that Mr Auvenshine was also charged with Domestic Assault & Battery on his former girlfriend.
Because of the law passed back in August police departments can no longer report domestic assault cases and have to purge them from the their daily logs. So the only way to get that information is to hear it in open Court and then request the documents.
