A 27-year-old man was stabbed in the chest in his hometown of Freeport and died four days later, Nassau County police told a New York Criminal Lawyer. The victim had some sort of altercation with two men on Broadway. Police told a New York Criminal Lawyer one assailant punched and kicked the victim, and the second assailant stabbed the victim with a kitchen knife at 9:40 p.m. on Sunday.
The victim was taken to South Nassau Communities Hospital and at first admitted in critical condition. He lost his struggle for life four days later, despite the best efforts of medical personnel. Police sources told New York Criminal Lawyers that the suspects were last seen fleeing westbound on Broadway. The authorities have yet to disclose any further details on the suspects or leads they have on capturing them.
Fleeing the police is generally the worst course of action to take, even when the suspected crime is murder. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty and it is the job of a New York Criminal Lawyer to protect the rights of the accused.
One of these rights is the right to a fair trial, something else a New York Criminal Lawyer can provide, whether the suspect pleads guilty or innocent. No matter what the accusation, hiding will only make it worse in the end. The first thing to do is to contact a good lawyer, who can provide representation both in and out of court.
