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.
