Off Duty Police Officer Acquitted of All Charges

Martin & Colin, P.C. announces that it has obtained the complete dismissal of all charges filed against a local village police officer (identity withheld) in Westchester County, New York. The officer had been charged with attacking another individual, while off duty, at a local summer camp. The trial was concluded in one day. At the conclusion of the trial, the judge dismissed all charges, finding the off-duty officer was not guilty. Local media carried the following comments by William Martin, who represented the off-duty officer at the trial: ”The judge’s ruling was correct. The entire prosecution was a travesty. It was clear from the outset that [the off-duty police officer] was the victim all along, and I think that is what the trial showed.” Records of the trial were sealed.
