PBA statement on reduced sentence for 'Molotov Cocktail lawyers'

Federal prosecutors are reportedly seeking a reduced sentence for two attorneys who are pleading guilty to firebombing an NYPD vehicle in Brooklyn in 2020.

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch:

“There is absolutely no justification for lowballing the sentence for an anti-police terrorist attack. It’s bad enough that these dangerous criminals have been allowed to sit at home for the past two years. Handing them a below-guidelines sentence would give a green light to other anti-police radicals who seek to advance their cause through violence. The judge must reject this request.”
