Score Three for the Good Guys!

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.
