AD1 downwardly modifies CAL client's SORA level


Mr. J petitioned Bronx Supreme Court for a downward modification of his SORA level-three classification two decades after his initial adjudication. While Bronx Supreme Court rejected the then 70-year-old Mr. J’s request, AD1 disagreed, finding that he’d provided clear and convincing evidence that he’d lived an exemplary, sober, and law-abiding life in the community. CAL attorneys Anjali Pathmanathan and Nicole Geoglis represented Mr. J on the petition and its appeal.
