People have all kinds of strange sexual proclivities and fantasies in this world, but most of them are relatively harmless, if a little off-putting. A spanking here and there isn’t going to really hurt anything, but some people seem to take things far more serious than other. A New York Criminal Lawyer explained that a 23 year old man placed a call to 911 services on the night of December 21, saying that he had accidentally shot his wife. When police arrived on scene, however, they got the full story.

The man and his 50 year old wife routinely engaged in sex play where the man would hold a gun to her head and threaten her life, the police were told by the man. He also said that he was unaware that the gun was loaded when he pulled the trigger while they were having sex. Now, according to the reporter, he is in custody and facing murder charges.

A New York Criminal Lawyer believes the man will most likely receive jail time even if he somehow manages to have his story corroborated. The intimacy that two people share in The Bronx and Staten Island, especially if their sexual proclivities are considered dangerous or perverse, is not likely to be announced to friends and family. It remains to be seen how the jury will respond in this case. If the sex fantasy scenario checks out, how responsible was the man in not checking for bullets before the scene took place? Further details are pending.

Police have arrested the person they believe perpetrated a violent robbery on February 25, New York Criminal Lawyer has learned. The 32-year old male was taken into custody about a mile from where the crime took place and without incident a week later as he walked along a city street. The arresting officer stated that when the suspect saw the officer that he did attempt to hide his face, but made no attempt to flee from the officer. There is no charge of gun possession.

The robbery, which occurred at a local discount store, was both brutal and distressing, and the local community pulled together and contributed to the arrest. The robbery occurred at about 9:30am on the morning of February 25, when the suspect entered the market while posing as a customer. The robber then grabbed the purse that was flung across the shoulder of a 71-year old female customer. During the process of the suspect fleeing the scene the victim had fallen to the floor, which caused her to bruise her ribs and break her finger and kneecap. She remained in the hospital for several days due to her injuries, but is expected to make a full recovery. Police in The Bronx and Queens would act in a similar manner.

Police officials have told all that this is one instance where the community really pulled together. Pictures from surveillance video, eyewitness descriptions of the robber, and tips from the community all contributed to the arrest. This may be considered as normal behavior for most communities, but this particular community has, at least in the past, had the attitude that “snitches need stitches” that actually prohibits cooperation with the police. It is believed that the fact that the victim was a 71-year old woman was a factor that overcame these attitudes.
