Leor Kweller Acquitted; Seeks to Clear His Name

(EINPresswire.com) Leor Kweller and his family are pleased to announce that they no longer live under threat and fear of wrongful prosecution and conviction. In the case of People v. Leor Kweller (CR-23-1517), on May 30, 2023, the New York State Supreme Court dismissed the case against Kweller, agreeing with his attorneys’ arguments that there was no evidence to support the charges. In June 2023, the Broome County District Attorney’s Office under Michael Korchak initiated an appeal that was deemed meritless by the court, seeking to overturn the Court’s decision to dismiss the case. On April 1, 2024, the Appellate Division ended that appeal, finally terminating what Kweller and his attorneys consider to be unjust prosecution of an innocent man.

While Kweller is relieved and grateful that his wrongful prosecution has ended, he knows that the path ahead — to full restoration of his rights and reputation — will be grueling. On April 29, 2024, Kweller sought to set right the miscarriage of justice that caused unimaginable harm to him and his family — including costing him his job, ruining his stellar reputation and causing serious emotional and financial harm. It is his hope that his experience will result in real change that prevents future miscarriages of justice.

Kweller was represented in this criminal matter by Andrea Zellan, Esq. of Brafman & Associates, P.C., Elena Fast, Esq. of The Fast Law, P.C. and Sage Intelligence. He is currently represented in his civil rights lawsuit by Andrea Zellan, Esq. of Brafman & Associates, P.C. Karen A. Newirth, Esq. of Newirth Law, PLLC, and Oscar Michelen of Cuomo LLC.
