Client Indicted For 1st Degree Assault Found Not Responsible By Reason Of Mental Disease Or Defect

Due to the tireless and diligent efforts of attorney Dominic L. Addabbo over the course of almost two years, and after numerous court appearances and conferences with the District Attorney's Office, Mr. Addabbo was able to obtain a plea of not responsible by reason of mental disease or defect, thereby saving our client a potential jail term of up to 25 years in prison. The negotiated plea resulted in our client being placed in a non-secure psychiatric facility under a civil order of commitment with no criminal penalties, an extraordinary outcome for a case of this serious nature. Once again, the expertise of the attorneys at Addabbo and Greenberg in defending persons suffering from a serious mental disease has yielded an extremely positive result, one that will provide our client with rehabilitation and treatment instead of incarceration.
