Defense claims domestic abuse allegations 'made up'


Gallant told the judge that the woman’s efforts included having someone doctor her ex-husband’s United States passport to incorporate Baez-Soto’s picture. The lawyer said his client did not use that to enter the country, but it’s not clear how he did enter the United States.

The Department of Homeland Security has lodged a warrant for Baez-Soto, meaning that if he is released in the Peabody case he will be handed over to immigration officials for deportation proceedings.

Baez-Soto is facing charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault with intent to murder, and assault and battery in Peabody District Court, where he’s due back on June 6.
