They should retain an attorney to represent them at the hearing.
This is a very serious charge-you need to speak with an attorney and have one present at the hearing. Feel free to contact the office at 774-745-0562
The clerk determines if there is a reasonable suspicion that a crime was committed and that the person there is the person who may have committed it. It is a very low standard. If they had more evidence, they may just issue a complaint. You do not say what the charge is.
This is a critical step, and you should get an attorney.
