Iraqi Vet Suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Represented by Sullivan & Brill, is Sentenced to Time Served and Probat
After close to two years since his accident and arrest for Manslaughter in the Second Degree and Vehicular Manslaughter, Sullivan & Brill's client, an Iraqi Vet, was sentenced to time served and five years of probation. S&B's client was deployed and then re-deployed to Iraq from 2004-2005 – perhaps the bloodiest and most violent era of the Iraqi war. Sullivan & Brill's Client suffered from Post -Traumatic Stress Disorder, which manifested itself in alcohol and drug abuse and, was argued, was the proximate cause of the S&B's client's conduct on the night of the accident. Further supporting that the S&B's client's Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder played a major role in the accident, S&B also argued that the actions of S&B's client on the night of the accident, was inconsistent with his behavior and judgment prior to this tours in Iraq.
