“If the authorities have evidence beyond reasonable doubt that she did everything knowing what he was going to do, then I think she will face very serious criminal charges,” Kendall Coffey on whether the Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Manteen’s wife will face criminal charges.
“While not every search-and-seizure warrant results in a criminal prosecution, in a very significant number of cases, a search-and-seizure warrant eventually culminates in a prosecution. […] When FBI agents show up to execute a search warrant because probable cause has necessarily been found, there will be some people who are sleeping less at night.” Find the original story here.
“You’ve got testimony that he did it because they wouldn’t talk to them. That doesn’t sound like a sane move. But again, it’s not up to the prosecution to prove. It’s all on the defense to make that case. […] It leave the jury guessing and assuming that not guilty means not guilty. If you told the jury he’s going to spend the rest of his life in a mental institution, or some large number of double-digit years, that might make a difference.” ~ Miami-based attorney Kendall Coffey on the complicated court proceedings in the “American Sniper Trial.” Source: NBC News.
~ Renown Miami Attorney, Kendall Coffey, discussing the shocking charges filed against New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver on “The Steve Malzberg Show.” “It’s got to be a stunning thing for New Yorkers. This guy was the second most powerful person in state government after the governor. […] It was a pure, classic shakedown-extortion scheme is what is alleged here. Nothing terribly new — and to the tune of this guy getting $3 million over a period of some years.”
~ Kendall Coffey, on the NYC grand jury’s decision not to bring charges to Officer Daniel Pantaleo for the homicide of Eric Garner. “Sometimes you wonder if ‘probable cause’ is clearly explained. Because it is not the concept of ultimate guilt or innocence […] This video, and some of these circumstances that we know to be undeniable seem to establish probable cause. We know the chokehold, as it was just described, is a banned, prohibited practice. In effect, this officer knowingly used what amounted to prohibited and excessive force at the very time he began. There are also a group of officers, an obviously unarmed man, and then you add to that the component that he was repeatedly saying he can’t breathe, and yet the police action continued. […] But understanding why this grand jury found that there was no probable cause to charge him for anything is difficult to understand.” 2014 MSNCB Politics Nation with Rev. Al Sharpton Interview.
