CAL in the Courts

Client's Conviction Reversed and Dismissed

3.15.17

On March 15, 2017, the Appellate Division, First Department, reversed and dismissed CAL client H.F.’s harassment conviction. The court held that the complainant’s testimony that “defendant apparently mistook her for someone else, and ‘grazed’ her arm, from her mid-shoulder to her hand, after which she walked away, did not support an inference that defendant intended to harass, annoy, or alarm her.” Brittany Francis represented our client.
