“Cache” of weapons case ends in sentence of Probation for Queens Resident.
January 3rd 2024
Our client was arrested after execution of a Search Warrant on March 1, 2023. When arrested, he was alleged to have a “cache” of illegal weapons as illustrated in the below photo. Upon closer examination, none of the guns, except one in our client’s bedroom, were fully assembled and did not qualify under NY Law as an operable weapon. Criminal Defense Attorney Todd D. Greenberg was able to establish that our client was a “hoarder”, that he collected these items, but never intended to assemble the guns. Further Mr. Greenberg urged the Prosecution to consider that he didn’t possess a criminal intent. Mr. Greenberg suggested a course of counseling for our clients’ hoarding issues and is thankful to the Queens District Attorney which approved a sentence of 5 years’ Probation instead of the substantial jail sentence that the District Attorney first sought. Please call Addabbo & Greenberg 718-268-0400, and ask for attorney Todd D. Greenberg, to help you through your unfortunate situation if you are charged with a crime.
