Secured reversal of juvenile delinquency adjudication based upon Court’s faulty allocution

Matter of Kwesi P., 177 AD3d 495 (1st Dept. 2019)

In this juvenile delinquency proceeding, I secured a reversal of Family Court’s finding of juvenile delinquency.  The First Department accepted my argument that appellant’s admission was defective because the court’s allocution of appellant’s mother failed to advise her of the rights appellant was waiving as a result of his admission and the dispositional consequences of appellant’s admission.
