The state’s highest court has refused to hear the appeal of a man convicted of second-degree manslaughter in the fatal shooting of a Selden teenager. The incident occurred outside the convicted man’s home at Miller Place.
The 56-year-old man seems to have no other recourse for appeals and will soon be back in court for sentencing, a spokeswoman for the Suffolk County district attorney’s office told a New York Criminal Lawyer. At that point, the judge could send the man to prison for 2 to 4 years for the death of a seventeen-year-old boy in 2006.
The now convicted man has been free on $200,000 bail during the appeals process. According to a New York Criminal Lawyer, an associate judge of the state Court of Appeals denied the defendant’s request to have his case reviewed by the court. The judge wrote, “There is no question of law presented which ought to be reviewed by the Court of Appeals.” The defendant’s attorney told a New York Criminal Lawyer he was “evaluating our additional options.”
The attorney continued, “We are disappointed that the Court of Appeals would not hear this case, especially in light of the compelling facts and the relevant law that we feel is so compelling.” The defendants family told New York Criminal Lawyers that they had no comment.
