People v. ALONZO H. (JURY TRIAL)
Court: Supreme Court Kings County (Hon. John Ingram, J.S.C.)
Charges: Criminal Possession of a Firearm in the Second Degree
Prosecution Case: Undercover police officers and backup team were in a targeted area when they hear gun shots and upon approaching, they allegedly see my client holding a weapon that he places into the open trunk of an automobile and walks away from. The police recovered the weapon.
Defense Case: Involved cross-examination of the undercover and backup officer to undermine their credibility and compare their testimonies for inconsistencies between themselves and the timing information gleaned from 911 tapes. The defense also produced an incarcerated witness from upstate and well as another witness placing the client elsewhere at the time of the shooting.
Verdict: Not Guilty on all counts
