Us V. Pimentel, 346 F. 3d 285 - Court Of Appeals, 2nd Circuit 2003, Roger J. Miner '56

Circuit Court Opinions

These appeals arise from the January 9, 1995 gang-related murder of Galiat Santiago. Instead of being tried in New York State Supreme Court for violating the New York Penal Law, defendants-appellants Joanna Pimentel and George Viruet (collectively, the "Defendants") were tried by a jury and convicted in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York (Johnson, J.).
