NOT GUILTY: DWI

NOT GUILTY: DWI

In People v. J.S., the defendant was accused of driving while intoxicated based on a breath alcohol content of 0.13. This was well over the legal limit of 0.08. 

Mr. DeCarolis took this case to trial and the jury found J.S. NOT GUILTY of the misdemeanor DWI, and instead only convicted the defendant of the violation of DWAI. This distinction spared J.S. from a far more severe punishment and also avoided a criminal record (a DWAI is a non-criminal offense).

CASE DISMISSED BY GRAND JURY: MURDER 2ND DEGREE

In People v. J.S., the client was accused of intentionally killing an individual with a handgun. Upon investigation it was quickly revealed that this was a clear case of justification as J.S. was acting in self-defense when he shot the gun.

Mr. DeCarolis assisted in preparing J.S. to testify before the Grand Jury. Ultimately the Grand Jury declined to pursue homicide charges of any kind against the defendant. The homicide charge was dismissed less than 2 weeks after J.S. was originally charged.

NOT GUILTY: CRIMINAL SALE OF A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE 3RD DEGREE

In People v. S.H., the defendant was accused of selling cocaine out of his car to an undercover New York State Trooper. An eighteen year veteran of the Narcotics Division identified the defendant as the individual from whom he had purchased the drugs.

Despite the Trooper's seemingly compelling testimony, Mr. DeCarolis' meticulous cross-examination highlighted numerous inconsistencies in the identification, and ultimately the jury found S.H. NOT GUILTY after barely an hour of deliberation.

NOT GUILTY: MURDER 2ND

CHARGE: Murder 2nd Degree
RESULT: NOT GUILTY


In People v. D.V., the client was charged with Murder 2nd Degree after stabbing a classmate five times during a fraternity party at the University of Rochester. He faced life in prison if convicted.

Mr. Nobles and Mr. DeCarolis were hired as a team on this case. After conducting an extensive investigation and interviewing over a dozen witnesses, it became clear that this was a case of self-defense. During the trial, several of the prosecution's own witnesses testified to the defense's theory of self-defense. After an eight-day bench trial, D.V. was found NOT GUILTY OF MURDER AND ALL LESSER INCLUDED OFFENSES.
