March 8th 2023

Our client, a 50-year-old man employed at the same job for 32 years with no prior record, was arrested for allegedly stalking and endangering the welfare of a 14-year-old child who was walking home from school. Our client was off from work that day, and he went to work out at a gym and then proceeded to a basketball court to play some basketball with the plan to go home after. On the way home he stopped to admire some flowers in front of a house wherein he proceeded to chant mantras and enjoy the beautiful day. At the same time that the Defendant was maneuvering his car to get in front of the house, the 14-year-old child was walking home from school and mistakenly thought that the Defendant was following her and further misconstrued his chanting mantras as sexual sounds. In a very detailed Trial presentation, Mr. Greenberg reconstructed his clients’ vehicles movements to show that at the time every movement was made the young girl was coincidentally in the area. Further, evidence was introduced that the Defendant hums and sings mantras all the time and it was his habit to do so. Based on that presentation, including the testimony of our client, he was found “Not Guilty” of all charges. Mr. Greenberg’s argument that this was a chance encounter, far from stalking, won the case! Please do not hesitate to call to discuss your case. Call Mr. Greenberg at 718-268-0400 or visit our website
