Arnold Lakind representing Thomas Stasio
Defendant, Thomas Stasio, was found guilty by a jury of assault with intent to rob and of assault while being armed with a dangerous weapon. An appeal followed to the Appellate Division which reversed, and certification was thereafter granted by the Supreme Court. Arnold Lakind was retained to represent the Department of Public Advocate. The Supreme Court agreed with the arguments we advanced and reversed Mr. Stasio’s conviction.
