AUGUST 31 - NYPD FAIS TO RETAIN CLIENT'S BMW WHERE GRAND JURY DISMISSES WEAPON CHARGES. TONER DISMISSES ATTEMPTED MURDER CHARGES IN A SEPARATE INDICTMENT.
NYPD v. JERMAINE WALKER
OATH index 460/17
The Client was indicted on Attempted Murder charges and on a separate indictment, Criminal Mischief as a felony. During a traffic stop where defendant was accused of intentionally damaging a Taxi cab window in NYC, a loaded fire arm was allegedly recovered from the defendant's car. The Grand Jury indicted the Defendant on the Criminal Mischief - Felony but not the weapon.
Toner Law Firm entered the case dismissing the Attempted Murder charges and reducing the Criminal Mischief charges to a single Misdemeanor with a sentence of Time Served.
After numerous demands for the Defendant's Vehicle, and after the District Attorney of New York released the car as evidence, the NYPD attempted to retain the vehicle because of the "Alleged Gun."
The Court ruled, that NYPD did not follow the legal notice provisions for the retention of the car and ordered them to return the vehicle.
"This is not the wild West. Regardless of who an individual is, what their record might be, there are rules, regulations and rights that must be respected." Said managing lawyer James E. Toner, Esq. "I am pleased to have made a difference in this case."
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: TONER LAW FIRM LAUNCHES MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR “BULLYING” LAWSUIT AGAINST THE SEA CLIFF YACHT CLUB
MINEOLA, N.Y. (February 28, 2017)
The Toner Law Firm announced the filing of a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the Sea Cliff Yacht Club for negligent hiring, retention, training and supervision of its employees. The lawsuit stems from his client’s participation in the Sea Cliff Yacht Club’s Junior Sailing Program last summer when the plaintiff-brothers were relentlessly bullied by two older members of the club. Both of the older children were named as defendant(s) in the suit. “Last summer, a time when my clients should have been enjoying their summer break and meeting new friends they instead were met with verbal and physical abuse, humiliation, routine chokings, forced servitude, assault, battery, unlawful imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress.” Said managing attorney James E. Toner. The situation came to a head last summer when a video of one of the plaintiff’s being choked, by the defendant, surfaced on the internet. An investigation revealed extreme and malicious conduct by the minors. In one notable incident, the plaintiff’s had been held at knife-point by one of the defendant(s) in a secluded changing room located in the basement of the club. He was then subject to verbal threats of violence and other abuse. In another incident his plaintiff-brother was forcibly handcuffed behind his back and pushed face down into the sand and then subject to similar verbal abuse.
The fifty-two page complaint names Jim Arnemann, the then club Commodore, Charles Walsh the club manager and two other adults alleging the failure to properly “supervise” and “protect” minors under their care. “The plaintiff’s were owed the same duty of care a parent owes to a child.” Mr. Toner said. “The Sea Cliff Yacht Club wholly failed to protect these young children from harm.” The lawsuit was filed in the Nassau County Supreme Court seeking compensatory and punitive damages.
ON JULY 2 - JAMES TONER OBTAINS NOT GUILTY VERDICT* FROM NASSAU COUNTY JURY ON NINE COUNT INDICTMENT WHICH INCLUDED THE CHARGES OF ASSAULT IN THE 1st DEGREE, ASSAULT IN THE 2nd DEGREE, RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT IN THE 1st DEGREE, CRIMINAL USE OF A FIRE ARM IN THE FIRST DEGREE, TWO COUNTS OF CRIMINAL POSSESSION OF A WEAPON IN THE 2nd DEGREE AND TWO COUNTS OF ASSAULT IN THE 3rd DEGREE.
*This verdict represents the latest in a string of victories by Mr. Toner including his recent murder trial acquittal in December.
