SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

Grand jury declined to indict 3 teens on rape charges

College is a time of fun and excitement for many students. Almost every campus has stories of parties and events that make college a memorable experience. Unfortunately, all college students don't necessarily have fond memories of life during the college years. For three young men, an alleged event that occurred in a college dorm room one night might have haunted them for life if a grand jury would have chose to indict them on serious charges.

The three men, a Brooklyn teen, a Rocky Point teen and a Hempsted teen, were accused of raping a female student just after midnight on Sept. 1, 2013 in a dorm room at Mount St. Mary College in Newburgh. The charges against the three college freshmen were dismissed by the grand jury in January. The grand jury found insufficient evidence against the boys to indict them on first-degree rape charges. The case has been sealed.

The charges against these three young men were serious charges. Fortunately for them, the grand jury didn't indict them on the charges. If the grand jury had found sufficient evidence to indict the defendants, it would have been important for them to understand the charges against them. They would have also had to understand the serious consequences that were possible if they were convicted.

Anyone who is facing allegations as these defendants were might need to speak with a New York criminal defense attorney to understand the charges and consequences. Once you understand the charges and the consequences, you can decide how to build a strong defense to give you the best chance at a positive outcome in your case.
