Client Charged with RICO Conspiracy in Newburgh Latin Kings Indictment Found Not Guilty of ALL Conspiracy Charges
In a major trial victory, Sullivan & Brill partner, Steven Brill, successfully defended a purported Latin King associate in a RICO Conspiracy indictment involving the Newburgh Latin Kings. After a 5 week trial, jurors found Mr. Brill's client not guilty of the RICO conspiracy, the Narcotics Conspiracy, as well as the Weapon Conspiracy. In the end, the client, a 28-year-old relative of some of the top crowns of the Latin Kings, was found guilty of one count of Drug Distribution - a non-conspiracy, substantive count. The client, who was facing a potential mandatory minimum of 20 years is now exposed to a significantly lower jail sentence.
