Burglary Dismissed after Trial (Manhattan)


Allegedly, the victim woke up because of a noise coming from the kitchen. The victim saw a man who the victim did not recognize and went to call 911. Later, ‚Äčthe victim positively ID'd our client in a line-up and our client had a long record for property crimes and other offenses. The NYPD said they found a fingerprint from our client inside the residence which supported what the victim claimed to have seen. Client was facing up to 15 years in jail. We decided to fight it to trial. At trial, Lance successfully cross examined several forensic experts who admitted to certain problems with the government’s case related to some of the fingerprint evidence. Jury Verdict: Total Acquittal – We won - all charges dismissed.
