Allegations that an inmate brutally assaulted his public defender at a county jail have highlighted differences in how facilities across New Hampshire handle attorney-client meetings.
Dale Holloway, 37, of Manchester, was charged with first-degree assault Monday after authorities say he attacked attorney Michael Davidow at the Hillsborough County House of Corrections, known informally as the Valley Street jail. Police said the lawyer ended up in intensive care with severe head injuries. Holloway, who pleaded not guilty Tuesday, denied assaulting Davidow and said the lawyer had a nosebleed.
