People v. JEREMY N. a.k.a. “JERMS BLACK” (JURY TRIAL)
Court: Criminal Court Queens County (Hon. Stephanie Zaro, J.C.C.)
Charges: Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree and Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the Fifth Degree
Prosecution Case: The complainant testified that the client utilized strongarm tactics to sell his CDs to him and took money from him without his consent
Defense Case: The defense called one witness to testify as to the client’s connection to the music world as an artist/producer and the dynamics of creating a “buzz” on the streets for a new artist by the self- promotion of one’s own music. Otherwise, the defense relied upon cross-examination of the complainant to undermine his accuracy of the details reported.
Verdict: Not Guilty on all counts
