At a pre-trial hearing on March 6, Judge Wayne Stewart set a trial date of May 15 at 10:30 a.m. for Islander Laura Clarice Martin.
Martin is accused of assault and battery and malicious mischief stemming from an incident at her in-home day care, Nov. 21.
After a state inspection of her day care did not go well, she called her then boyfriend to come over. He observed that she had been drinking; an assistant was with the children. When the boyfriend refused to call all the parents to come and pick up their children, she assaulted him and damaged his truck. Martin's day care license has been suspended. She had no prior criminal history.
