This man is a liar. Helping a teenager get out of accountability for a racially motivated attack and attempt at murder by calling it HORSEPLAY! These are the type of people that will help child predators escape maximum sentences. To be so callous as to THINK that the public is stupid enough to believe that horseplay involves racial slurs and drowning someone is other worldly. This will not age well and I pray this client gets every single charge as a conviction and serves the time at MAXIMUM penalty.
A 14-year-old white boy indicted last month on a charge of attempted murder of a Black teen that he is accused of luring to a pond, throwing rocks at and attempting to drown was released from jail this week to the custody of his father after a court appearance. John Sheeran is also facing a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon over the July 19 incident at Goose Pond in Chatham, Mass., in which police say Sheeran dunked the victim underwater several times, knowing the Black teen could not swim, and called him racial slurs as another friend laughed and called the teen “George Floyd.” The 15-year-old victim told police that Sheeran and the other boy also threw rocks at him repeatedly, and the attack stopped only after another youth on the beach went into the water to intervene, according to officials. Other teens nearby told police they witnessed the incident. It is not clear whether the second teen, who is also white, will face charges. Sheeran’s attorney, Kevin Reddington, told the Boston Globe that the charges against his client are “over the top” and downplayed the teen’s actions, equating them to “horseplaying” among kids. “They were in the water horseplaying and it got out of control, clearly,” Reddington said. “I understand the basis of the judge’s decision, and we are appealing to the Superior Court and hoping to get him back in school.” The allegations seem to fit the definition of a hate crime, one expert said. But thus far, no such charges have been filed against Sheeran. Margaret Drew, an associate professor at UMass Law School, says that though hate crime charges can be added later, she questions why they were not initially applied to the case given its severity. Massachusetts law defines a hate crime as “any criminal act coupled with overt actions motivated by bigotry and bias,” including acts motivated by racial, religious, ethnic or sexual orientation prejudice, among other things. A hate crime conviction carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Interesting.......
The best of the best. Reminds me of Al Pacino in And Justice for All Mr.Reddington commands a presence when he walks in the courtroom. He swiftly walks in and eyes everyone in the courtroom. Within seconds he knows who are prey and predators. Know that this man can repeat case law in his sleep. He is truly the best in his field and with Mr.Reddington you know he will use his vast experience, knowledge and wisdom to give you the best thought out defense. The eye of the tiger.
