Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and concern. The defendant should not be given any special treatment or be allowed to call in any favors, just because he is a top litigator. He is charged with a serious sex crime and it will be at the sole discretion of the Judge, if he will be held without bail or be give give a bond and be able to be released, with any additional terms and conditions, such a home confinement and electronic monitoring. The Judge will consider that fact that he has no priors and then determined if he is a flight risk or danger to the community. As far as the criminal justice
process, he will be afforded legal counsel and the burden is on the State of New York to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt. It is possible that if a plea bargain is worked out, that the prosecutor may be more lenient but the plea can not be so unreasonable that it is unjust and it must be approved by the Judge. The defendant has a right to go to trial
and at that point, it will be up to the Jury to decide, so it is unlikely he will get any favorable treatment by them. The Judge needs to follow the law when it involved court
matters or else there would be a legal basis to appeal the rulings by the State, which no Judge wants to have to deal. Even if the charge was amended, there needs to be a legal basis to support it. This should not be a defendant who commits any awful crime and just walks away with a fine and slap on the wrist.
