Press release from: Napoli Shkolnik PLLC

NEW YORK, NY - Reversing the legal effects of a wrongful conviction is only part of the puzzle, and while no one can restore the years that they have lost, Marie Napoli is determined to see that wrongfully incarcerated individuals receive maximum compensation in these cases.

There are many success stories in this area. For example, two New York City men, who served a collective thirty-five years for a kidnapping and murder they did not commit, will receive a combined $25 million. The Brooklyn detectives involved in the case performed an incomplete investigation, and court prosecutors argued that the bad police work was immaterial to the case. Instead of the two men arrested and convicted, the evidence seems to indicate that this 16-year-old girl was abducted and killed by high school classmates who have never been identified.

False Imprisonment Claims

Even if the victim is pardoned for the crime, false imprisonment cases are not easy to win, because of the law enforcement exception. Even if the elements are present, police departments are immune from lawsuits if they had probable cause to believe that the victim was guilty.

“Probable cause” is not really defined in the law, but it is a standard of proof between reasonable suspicion, which is essentially an evidence-based hunch, and beyond a reasonable doubt, which is the standard in criminal court.

Napoli Shkolnik, PLLC is national law firm that represents victims of Wrongful Convictions in nationwide. Thousands of people are wrongfully convicted every year with no resources to defend themselves. Marie Napoli, a partner at Napoli Shkolnik has developed a relationship with the innocence project to help the wrongfully convicted get their life back.

James Henning, an attorney with the firm says “One thing I always like to point out is that any time there is a wrongful conviction, a real criminal is emboldened at having evaded justice and likely will continue to commit crimes”.

“In a way, it’s almost insulting to think that money alone can in any way compensate for lost days, weeks, months, or years spent behind bars,” she said. “But that doesn’t stop me from demanding the compensation, and respect, that my clients deserve.” Says Marie Napoli.

If you or a loved one were wrongfully imprisoned for a few minutes, a few decades, or anywhere in between, you may be entitled to significant compensation, and Marie Napoli can make it happen.
