Rochester, Monroe
Case Review:  People v. C.A. (Town Ct., 9/20), Rochester, New York


As he has written several times in the past, criminal charges are often improperly utilizes to obtain “leverage: in Family Court or Divorce cases.

          Such was the case in People v. C.A. (Town Ct., 9/20). There, a spiteful spouse claimed Mr. Corletta’s client was mistreating the party’s 2 children, because the client drank alcohol in their presence, due to the stress of a divorce they were currently going through, which Mr. Corletta was also handling.

          Utilizing his multi-disciplinary skills and ability to handle both criminal and civil matters, Mr. Corletta pointed out to the District Attorney that these charges were motivated by spite. He showed his client was gainfully and steadily employed long term, and was trusted and liked by their employer, and that the client was heavily involved in the children’s lives and was a good parent, while the spouse had a history of Domestic Violence.

          The District Attorney agreed to a Conditional Dismissal, clearing the client's record and putting the client back on a level playing field in the divorce case by getting rid of these irrelevant and inflammatory charges.
