Criminal defense: Sex crime charge for New York community leader

A 59-year-old leader of New York's prominent Orthodox Jewish community is facing a serious allegation after an investigation was launched into his activities, according to local sources. The man, who is a leader of an auxiliary police force servicing New York's Orthodox neighborhoods, is facing charges of statutory rape and sexual abuse, as well as other charges. He stands accused of abusing a teenage girl, and if he is found guilty, he could face jail time as well as the loss of his community position. He is likely focused on preparing his criminal defense as the case heads to court. 

According to the police report, the alleged abuse took place between Aug. and Nov. 2017 at the accused man's home. The girl, who cannot be identified publicly as she is a minor, was said to be 15 years old at the time. A further inquiry has been launched to determine whether the alleged abuse continued before or after this time span, and whether there were other victims of the alleged assaults.

Criminal defense: Man indicted in car accident case

A woman believed to be responsible for killing two children in a car crash has been indicted by a court in Brooklyn. The accident took place back in March in New York City and claimed the lives of a 4-year-old girl and a 1-year-old boy. The woman is facing charges of negligent homicide, reckless endangerment and more. She is expected to appear in court on June 13, and she has entered a plea of not guilty to all charges, though it is unclear whether she has retained criminal defense counsel. 

According to the police report, on March 5, the 44-year-old woman was driving her vehicle in Brooklyn Park when she ran a red light, lost control of her vehicle and struck a family in a crosswalk. Two children were killed, and their parents and another pedestrian were injured in the impact. An investigation was promptly launched to determine what caused the woman to lose control of the vehicle. It was discovered she suffered a seizure while behind the wheel, and she was rushed to a local hospital where she experienced several more. 

Criminal defense: Man charged with larceny in New York

A man who is believed to have misled a senior citizen into believing she had won the lottery is being charged with grand larceny. The man reportedly fooled the New York woman into turning over money for taxes to be paid on a nonexistent lottery win. The man is likely working alongside criminal defense counsel to prepare for the upcoming court proceedings. 

According to New York authorities, a 40-year-old New Jersey man convinced the woman that she had won a lottery, one she reportedly had never entered. The woman, 84, was led to believe she had to pay taxes on her prize money. As a result, she signed two checks over to the accused man: one for $5,000 and a second for $5,500. 

Lying to federal government may lead to time behind bars

An arrest for making a false statement to a police officer may understandably be terrifying and even frustrating. However, just because authorities have accused you of lying to a federal agent does not mean you are automatically guilty in the eyes of Lady Justice.

Making a false statement to a federal official is a criminal act against the federal government. It is similar to perjury -- the crime of lying under oath. However, if you face this type of criminal charge, the government must prove its allegation against you before you can face a conviction in New York.

Criminal defense: Man faces murder charges in New York

A fatal shooting in upstate in New York has led to the arrest of one man, according to local law enforcement.

The accused man is believed to have pulled a gun and shot the victim, who was later pronounced dead.

Criminal defense: Man in New York charged with drug trafficking

Authorities have indicted a man they believe has been bringing the dangerous drug fentanyl into the United States. New York police arrested the 41-year-old Mexican native on suspicion of trafficking enough fentanyl to kill some 10 million people. It has been confirmed that he has retained criminal defense counsel, though his lawyers are not issuing public statements at this time. 

The New York Special Naracotics Prosecutor has said the man is believed to have arranged for some 44 pounds of fentanyl to be shipped to the city.

Officials have said the drug is often pressed into counterfeit pills like oxycontin or Xanax, or even cut into heroin. 

Criminal defense: New York city workers allegedly sell phones

Two IT workers for the city of New York have been arrested following a probe into their possibly illegal activities, according to an official statement. The workers, who are employed in separate departments for New York City, are faced with federal fraud and theft charges after it was alleged they resold cellphones meant for city use. No trial date has been announced, but both men will face the charges with criminal defense representation at their side. 

According to the probe, IT workers working for the New York Fire Department and the Department of Youth and Community Development allegedly diverted several hundred cellular phones the city purchased for use by personnel within both organizations. The cell phones were purchased through use of a grant from the federal government. It appears that some 360 cell phones bound for the FDNY and the DYCD never made it to their intended users.
