Indictment Dismissed

On April 26, 2019, in People v. Taylor, the Appellate Division dismissed the indictment of an OAD client after finding an “unreasonably long” delay in sentencing. The Court held that the prosecution “offer[ed] no excuse for more than one year of the delay in defendant’s sentencing, a period that began when the prosecution received actual notice, provided by defense counsel, that defendant was in custody in another state and wished to be produced for sentencing on this case.”

Kudos to OAD Staff Attorney, Emma Shreefter, for her outstanding advocacy on behalf of Mr. Taylor!
