The Greenburgh Robbery Charge Is Dismissed
Our White Plains criminal defense lawyer Michael Joseph is proud to report that the attempted robbery charge in the Patterson charge, which was featured on Eyewitness News has been voluntarily dismissed by the Westchester District Attorney’s office.
Thanks to the quick thinking of one of our client’s friends who recorded the interaction with the Greenburgh police, the District Attorney’s office voluntarily dismissed all charges and admitted in the Greenburgh Town Court that they could not prove that our client committed any crime. The officer falsely accused our client of jumping on his back and pulling on his gun, thereby attempting to commit a robbery. The video evidence, which was captured on an Iphone, clearly showed that these charges were a complete fabrication.
Video evidence is becoming critical in successfully defending those falsely accused of committing robberies. In another case, where a robbery was captured on tape and our client was falsely accused, our White Plains criminal defense lawyers retained the services of a retired F.B.I. facial recognition expert who was able to exclude our client based on facial differences, height differences and complexion differences between the individual captured on the tape and our client. Our Westchester criminal lawyers strive to stay on the cutting edge of technology to successfully use video evidence to clear those who are falsely accused of committing robberies in Westchester towns including White Plains, Yonkers, Mount Vernon, Rye, Sleepy Hollow, Greenburgh, Elmsford, Valhalla, New Rochelle, Bronxville, Scarsdale, Mamaroneck, Hartsdale, Harrison, Mount Vernon, Port Chester and Mount Kisco.
