[07/28/18]   It is with an extremely heavy heart that I inform you that my good friend and colleague Deron Castro, Esq. passed away earlier today. Deron was one of the best criminal defense attorneys I have ever seen in 17 years of practice in multiple States and Federal jurisdictions. He was a loving father of three and husband. In addition to being one of the most dedicated lawyers who fearlessly served his clients and gave them nothing but the best representation ever, he was one of the kindest, most generous and understanding people I have known professionally or personally.

May God welcome him in heaven as a friend.

New York Weekly Roundup - Criminal Appeals

In another important Fourth Amendment case, the Supreme Court held today that the mere fact that a driver in lawful possession or control of a rental car is not listed on the rental agreement will not defeat his or her otherwise reasonable expectation of privacy.

The Government’s contention that drivers who are not listed on rental agreements always lack an expectation of privacy in the car rests on too restrictive a view of the Fourth Amendment’s protections. However, a car thief does NOT have an expecation of privacy in a stolen car. The Supreme Court left open for argument on remand the Government’s argument that one who intentionally uses a third party to procure a rental car by a fraudulent scheme for the purpose of committing a crime is no better situated than a car thief. That issue is not decided.

Lots of interesting parts to this opinion, and definitely worth a read.

New York Weekly Roundup - Criminal Appeals

In a groundbreaking case, the United States Supreme Court held today that when a client makes it plain that the objective of “his defence” is to maintain innocence of the charged criminal acts and pursue an acquittal, his lawyer must abide by that objective and may not override it by conceding guilt. To do otherwise is to render ineffective assistance of counsel.

Roberty McCoy was charged with murdering his estranged wife’s mother, stepfather, and son. McCoy pleaded not guilty to first degree murder, insisting that he was out of State at the time of the killings and that corrupt police killed the victims when a drug deal went wrong. Although he vociferously insisted on his innocence and adamantly objected to any admission of guilt, the trial court permitted his counsel to argue that McCoy was guilty but his mental state prevented him from forming the criminal intent to kill. McCoy testified in his own defense, insisting he was innocent and maintaining his alibi. He was convicted, and at the penalty phase, his lawyer again argued he was guilty and asked the jury to spare his life. He was sentenced to death.

He sought a new trial, but the trial court and the Louisiana Supreme Court both held his lawyer had the authority to concede guilt as a legitimate trial strategy.

The Supreme Court said otherwise.
