Case Conclusion Date: January 1, 1983
Practice Area: Violent Crime
Outcome: Robbery conviction of Police Officer
Description: Police Officer from Nassau County, NY, charged with robbing his own bank in Suffolk County. The case was tried three (3) times. The first time was by John Sutter and was overturned on Appeal. The second was tried by Theodore W. Robinson to a hung jury that took five days to deliberate before ending the case in a mistrial. The third trial was by Theodore Robinson and it ended in a conviction after four days of deliberations. Despite the fact that he was innocent of the charges, in my opinion, he served time and was never heard from again. This was a mis-carriage of justice in my opinion, but is included of balance purposes. Even some innocent people can be convicted. Even a cop.
