Resident Alien Woman Charged With Criminal Trespass ... .. .

We represented a woman today in New York County Criminal Court who was arrested and charged with criminal trespass for refusing to leave a rooftop bar when it was closing.  Since she was a resident alien, a conviction for the top charge could have caused her immigration problems.  We were able to convince the District Attorney that an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal was an appropriate outcome.
