In People v. D.J., the defendant was accused of robbing a person on the street. The alleged victim testified at trial that his credit card was stolen and not returned.
Anticipatin this testimony, Mr. DeCarolis was prepared with extensive proof that the credit card had actually been used by the accuser on numerous occasions after the alleged robbery. With the Prosecution's main witness' credibility destroyed, the Judge rendered a NOT GUILTY verdict at the conclusion of the bench trial.
