Last week I appeared in Richmond County Criminal Court representing two employees of a local Staten Island bar who received a total of three criminal summonses. The bartender received a summons for unreasonable noise coming from a commercial establishment (which can carry a very substantial fine as high as $3,500) and a second summons for failure to produce the certificate of occupancy. The bouncer received the third summons for failure to produce a New York State security guard’s license, which is a misdemeanor. I was able to convince the judge to grant an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal AND immediate dismissal and sealing of the case. No fine. No community service.
