Felony Domestic Violence

Acquitted of All Charges - 11/9/2017

Steven Goldman recently battled the Bronx DA’s office in a case where his client, an NYPD officer, was accused of felony domestic violence against his child’s mother over a period of 2+ years. None of the crimes were reported until after Mr. Goldman’s client filed a petition for custody of their son. Despite the lengthy time lapse in reporting the incidents and the strategic timing of the allegations, the Bronx DA’s office arrested and indicted Mr. Goldman’s client. The trial stood-out for 2 reasons. 1 - the complainant committed perjury when she contradicted her sworn testimony from a prior trial. 2 - any police officer charged with a crime in the Bronx faces an uphill battle when it comes to getting a fair trial. After 2 long years the case went to trial, and after a month long trial Mr. Goldman’s client was acquitted of all charges except for a single misdemeanor charge of trespass for entering her apartment to serve her with the custody petition. As a result, Mr. Goldman’s client is not likely to lose his job or his freedom. No less importantly, he will continue to have a relationship with his son, who means more to him than anything in the world.
