SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

Brooklyn man nabbed in Queens, faces sex crime charges

According to New York police, a man from Brooklyn allegedly tailed a woman from Queens back to her apartment recently and then attempted to rape her.

The 24-year-old man from Greene Ave. followed his intended victim up to her Woodside apartment shortly after 9 a.m. last month. As she was entering her apartment, he attacked, trying to take off her clothes.

She was able to fend him off long enough to get inside and lock her door. He continued to try to force himself inside before finally fleeing.

The suspect was depicted on video surveillance cameras, police stated. Using a fingerprint from the intended victim's door, officers were able to match it to the man. He was located at his grandmother's Brooklyn home and arrested on charges of burglary, attempted rape, forcible touching and sex abuse.

He had a prior robbery arrest in 2013.

As anyone who has ever faced sex crime charges knows, it is a serious situation for one to be in. However, there are often extenuating circumstances that can become a part of a successful defense. For instance, in a similar situation to the one above, being seen on a Queens surveillance camera is not evidence of any type of criminal behavior.

Neither is a fingerprint on a doorway, which merely establishes that, at some point in time, the person touched that surface and left an imprint. Even taken together, they fail to that indicate anything of a criminal nature took place.

A savvy defense attorney may be able to depict such a scenario as a "he said/she said" domestic argument that got out of hand. It is always a good idea to seek professional legal advice in such a situation.
