State of Mind
Not every death is a homicide. A conviction for criminal homicide requires some kind of intent to commit the crime. Depending on the specific charge, the prosecutor must prove that you committed the act purposely, knowingly, recklessly or negligently. As experienced criminal defense attorneys, we hold the prosecutors to their burden of proof so that juries and judges can clearly see when the intent just wasn’t there.

Sol Lesser is a former Orange County Executive District Attorney and has been trying major criminal cases since 1976. Barry Silver has representing people charged with crimes in Newburgh and the Hudson Valley since 1964.
