New York woman charged with robbery while baby sleeps in car

A Long Island woman is accused of robbing a bank while her 10-month-old baby boy snoozed in the get-away car. The 20-year-old New York resident was arrested and charged with third-degree robbery and endangering a child's welfare during a recent early-morning bank holdup, according to Suffolk County Police.

New York robbery victim chases suspects with Nunchucks

Police are looking for some well-dressed robbers who left a man in critical condition and his son with injuries. The mid-morning robbery in Queens occurred at the victim's store. Neighbors, many of whom went outside after hearing a big bang, saw the New York wholesale business owner with a gun shot to his head.

2 New York men facing merry-go-round robbery charges

Woman faces grand larceny charge after shopping spree

Many companies in New York and elsewhere around the country issue corporate or business credit cards for their employees' use. They are convenient to use for office supplies, meals or other expenses the business may incur. However, a corporate card should not generally be used for personal expenses. An office manager has recently been arrested for grand larceny after charging several items.

What is larceny?

Have you been accused of larceny in New York or know someone who has? Do you know what this really means? It is not a term that many people use on a regular basis so it is understandable for defendants to be unclear about what they are being charged with when arrested for some type of larceny.

Audit: NYC's bail system is expensive and discriminatory

Almost two years ago, Kalief Browder killed himself after having spent three years in solitary confinement awaiting trial for a misdemeanor. His suicide drew attention to the problem of young offenders -- usually Black or Hispanic -- being held in jail for indeterminate periods even though their charges are minor. Mayor Bill de Blasio was inspired by the story to call for reform.

Could debit cards limit crime?

It is a common notion that most street crime in New York City is driven by cash…or at least the need for it. Unlike other objects of wealth, such as cell phones, mp3 players or jewelry, cash can easily be hidden by being spent quickly on other things, including illegal items. The need for cash, or at least the prospect of quickly obtaining it, also makes vulnerable people easy marks for robberies.

Unique sentence imposed for juvenile defendants

Whenever prosecutors or judges come up with ideas for unique and creative sentences, the cases often get covered in the news. Sometimes, a creative sentence is imposed as a learning opportunity - especially in cases involving juvenile defendants. The theory here is that juvenile crime is often the product of naiveté and poor judgment rather than malice. If we accept this premise (and juvenile development research suggests we should), then we should be focusing on reform rather than punishment.

New York City may be dismissing old arrest warrants

Imagine getting stopped by a police officer. The officer asks for ID, runs your name and then arrests you for a minor offense committed 15 years ago. You may not even remember having committed the offense and had no idea that there was an arrest warrant with your name on it.
