Civil Rights Attorney Met with Westchester County District Attorney’s Office and Had More Questions Than Answers

Attorney Lauren P. Raysor is calling on Miriam Rocah, District Attorney, Westchester County, to release the results of its investigation into a hit-and-run accident that sent a 72-year-old woman to the hospital. She says that it has been nearly three months since the incident occurred and Ms. Rocah’s office has yet to disclose its findings in the case.

 

On October 19, 2021 at 5:19 p.m., Geraldine Sinceno was hit by a car, driven by 25-year-old Gillian Getlan, on North Avenue and 5th Avenue in New Rochelle. Ms. Sinceno suffered multiple injuries and was admitted to the trauma unit at Jacobi Hospital. She underwent surgery and is currently recovering in a nursing facility.

 

Defendant Getlan was only issued a summons, but not arrested, for failing to show a driver’s license and insurance and leaving the scene of an accident. She was only given a desk appearance ticket. On December 9, 2021, she was arraigned at New Rochelle City Court. She pled not guilty to an upgraded charge of leaving the scene of an accident and causing injury — a felony — and was released on her own recognizance. She is scheduled to return to court on Friday, January 14 at 9:30 a.m.

 

Ms. Raysor and members of the community recently met with Daniel Flecha, Assistant District Attorney, Westchester County DA’s Office, to discuss the progress being made in the investigation. “We had more questions than answers,” said Ms. Raysor.

 

They were joined telephonically by Rev. Dr. James A. Forbes, Jr. and Rev. Dr. Debra Northern, Pastors, Parish Care – The Riverside Church of New York City — two concerned members of the community. “If attorney Raysor were not raising certain issues, it would have been lost in the proceedings for justice to be served,” Rev. Dr. Forbes said.

 

Attorney Raysor says that Ms. Sinceno is still suffering from her injuries and felt that Defendant Getlan treated her like “trash.”

 

“More importantly, we believe that, if Defendant Getlan were drunk or under the influence of drugs, the charges would have been more serious,” Ms. Raysor said. “However, no drug or alcohol test was taken. We want full transparency. The public has the right to know.”

Matrimonial and Family Law Attorney Urges Divorcing Parents to Keep Their Children in Mind during This Difficult Time

Reminds Them That January is International Child-Centered Divorce Month

Attorney Lauren P. Raysor is asking parents who are getting, or planning to get, a divorce to prioritize their children’s emotional and psychological health, as they are also affected by this difficult life event and that the month of January is International Child-Centered Divorce Month.

 

International Child-Centered Divorce Month is an annual designation set during the month of January which alerts parents of the effects that divorce has on their children and how they can eliminate the emotional and psychological toll of divorce, while and after it happens.

 

Studies from the U.S. National Library of Medicine of the National Institutes of Health have shown that children of divorce are more likely to develop mental and physical illnesses, drop out of school, become incarcerated and commit suicide. Further, less than half of children will still live with their biological parents by the time they turn 17, according to the American Community Survey.

 

Ms. Raysor says most divorces occur in January, after the holidays end. “Both parents try to keep the family together when the holidays come around,” she says. “They try to keep a united front for the sake of the children, but it becomes too great so, when the holidays are over, that is when the marriage is over, too.”

 

The process of getting a divorce can be stressful for adults, Ms. Raysor says, but parents should take their children’s feelings into account as well. “It is important for the child’s health and wellbeing that the parents engage in counseling and in healthy communication with one another,” she says. “Children can be emotionally and psychologically scarred from divorces that become acrimonious.”

Lauren P. Raysor Calls for Westchester County DA Miriam E. Rocah to Investigate Hit-and-Run Accident That Hospitalized a 72-Year-Old Woman

Driver Only Received a Desk Appearance Ticket

Attorney Lauren P. Raysor is calling on Miriam E. Rocah, District Attorney, Westchester County, to investigate a hit-and-run accident that sent a 72-year-old woman to the hospital. A woman and two other drivers chased 25-year-old Gillian Getlan and blocked her in to prevent her from leaving. The police arrived and the driver was apprehended, but not arrested.

 

“Over 40 days have passed by, and we are hoping that this case can now be thoroughly investigated,” Ms. Raysor said. “Likened to the Ahmaud Arbery case, we are seeking to determine if there has been political favoritism and obstruction of justice which delayed the swift prosecution of this matter. If there are any conflicts of interest that emerge, then a Special Prosecutor must be appointed by New York Governor Kathy Hochul.”

 

On October 19, 2021 at 5:19 p.m., Geraldine Sinceno, a retired hospice nurse, was hit by a car on North Avenue and 5th Avenue in New Rochelle. She suffered multiple injuries and was admitted to the trauma unit at Jacobi Hospital. Ms. Sinceno underwent surgery and is currently recovering in a nursing facility.

 

Ms. Getlan should have been arrested, but was only issued a summons for failing to show a driver’s license and insurance and leaving the scene of an accident. She was only given a desk appearance ticket. She is scheduled to appear at New Rochelle City Court, 475 North Avenue, New Rochelle on December 9, 2021.

 

In New York State, leaving the scene of an accident that results in bodily injury is a Class E felony with a maximum penalty of seven years in jail, and a $5,000 fine.

 

“The Sinceno family believes they have been treated unfairly in this investigation,” Ms. Raysor said. “I have called on Miriam Rocah, the Westchester District Attorney, to investigate this case. We believe that Gillian Getlan should be arrested.”

 

Ms. Raysor pointed out that Ms. Sinceno has been a pillar of the community, serving as a registered nurse for more than 20 years. “She worked very hard caring for those who were seriously ill or dying, even when the COVID-19 pandemic occurred,” she said. “It is only right that she and her family get the justice that they deserve. The family asks that you appear in Court on December 9, 2021 to support Geraldine Sinceno.”

Lauren P. Raysor Comments on Guilty Verdicts in the Trial of Shooting Death of Ahmaud Arbery

MOUNT VERNON, NEW YORK — Attorney Lauren P. Raysor said she agreed with the jury’s guilty verdicts of three men who were responsible for the shooting death of Ahmaud Arbery on February 23, 2020, but added that more needs to be done to make sure the justice system is fairer for persons of color.

 

On November 24, a Georgia State Court jury found Travis McMichael guilty of malice murder, four counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, one count of false imprisonment and one count of criminal attempt to commit a felony; Gregory McMichael guilty of four counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, one count of false imprisonment and one count of criminal attempt to commit a felony; and William “Roddie” Bryan guilty of three counts of felony murder, and one count each of aggravated assault, false imprisonment and criminal attempt to commit a felony. Each defendant could face life in prison.

 

“Today’s verdict shows that justice prevailed,” Ms. Raysor said. “However, the justice system still needs to do a better job representing Blacks who have been killed in cold blood because of the color of their skin. We hope that we can achieve a fairer system in the near future.”

Lauren P. Raysor Files Lawsuit over Controversial Policy of “No Knock” Warrants

Officers Executed “No-Knock” Warrant upon Entering Residence

On April 20, 2021, Attorney Lauren P. Raysor announced that she is filing a lawsuit against the New York Police Department (NYPD) on behalf of her client, Andre Brown. Ms. Raysor claimed officers executed a “no-knock” warrant upon entering the premises and unlawfully arresting Mr. Brown.

On the morning of March 5, 2021, Mr. Brown, who was living in the basement apartment of his family’s house in Jamaica, Queens with his girlfriend, Deidre Covington, saw a group of NYPD officers — their faces and badges covered with dark cloth — pointing their guns at him. The officers broke down the front door and trashed the basement apartment. They made him and his girlfriend get dressed, cuffed Mr. Brown and pulled them into a police van without explanation. Meanwhile, another group of officers told Mr. Brown’s family, who were upstairs, not to move. None of the officers produced a warrant before entering the residence.

Mr. Brown spent 25 minutes in the van. A short while later, Ms. Covington was released. Mr. Brown was taken to the precinct, where he was ticketed for possession of marijuana. He spent 90 minutes in a jail cell after being fingerprinted and photographed. Five days later, the District Attorney’s Office determined the NYPD did not have a case against Mr. Brown and dropped the charge.

“I can’t understand, in light of Breonna Taylor’s murder, that the police are allowed to execute ‘no-knock’ warrants,” Ms. Raysor said. “Suspending our constitutional rights under the guise of fighting crime is morally wrong. What is worse is that a majority of these ‘no-knock’ warrants are executed in communities of color. We can’t wait until someone is killed to change the law. We have a chance to make changes now.”

Lauren P. Raysor Comments on Jury Conviction of Former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin in George Floyd’s Death

Attorney Lauren P. Raysor said that the guilty verdict handed to former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is long overdue, since too many communities of color have been victimized by questionable and, at times, unlawful tactics used by police in making an arrest.

On May 25, 2020, Mr. Chauvin, who was on the force at the time, tried to handcuff George Floyd by placing his knee on the back of Mr. Floyd’s neck for nine-and-a-half minutes. Although Mr. Floyd told him he couldn’t breathe, Mr. Chauvin continued to press his knee behind Mr. Floyd’s neck. Mr. Floyd was later transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The next day, Mr. Chauvin was fired from the force. On May 29, 2020, he was arrested in the death of Mr. Floyd and charged with murder and manslaughter. On April 20, 2021, a jury found Mr. Chauvin guilty on three charges: second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. The charges carry a combined maximum sentence of 75 years.

“I am relieved that some semblance of justice can be found in this verdict,” Ms. Raysor said. “Every time a police officer is on trial for the death of an African-American citizen, they are usually found not guilty for one reason or the other. Now that this verdict has been rendered, I hope that the police departments across the U.S. will clean house and reform their practices so that they can no longer demonstrate any forms of hostility on persons of color.”

Ms. Raysor concentrates her practice in civil rights, representing those who are arrested during a traffic stop for no reason or as a result of racial profiling, experience negligence while in jail or prison, or use of excessive force. She also founded the Mount Vernon Coalition for Police Reform, which is comprised of former police officers, civil rights attorneys, former city officials and other concerned individuals seeking ways to improve the practices of the Mount Vernon Police Department.

Lauren P. Raysor Files Complaint on Behalf of Man Falsely Arrested for Drug Sale and Possession

MOUNT VERNON, NEW YORK — On November 21, 2020, attorney Lauren P. Raysor held a press conference in front of the Law Offices of Lauren P. Raysor to announce that she has filed a complaint on behalf of Gordon Tarrant, a Mount Vernon resident who claims he was falsely arrested for sale and possession of drugs.

On the morning of April 26, 2018, Mr. Tarrant was in his Mount Vernon apartment when he heard a loud pounding at the door. He looked out the window and saw officers from the Mount Vernon and Westchester County Police Departments. They identified themselves as “parole, probation and pardon services.” As he answered the door, officers told him to drop the phone, threw him against the wall and handcuffed him. Mr. Tarrant asked about a warrant for his arrest, but it was never produced.

After being searched twice, Mr. Tarrant was transported to the Mount Vernon Police Station and booked on charges of Bail Jumping in the Third Degree, Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Seventh Degree and Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree. The charges were dismissed by the DA’s office.

The Plaintiff is seeking damages resulting from violations of his rights to be free from an unreasonable search and seizure; violation of his rights to Due Process of Law; violation of his New York State constitutional rights; physical pain and suffering; emotional trauma and suffering, including fear, embarrassment, humiliation, emotional distress, frustration, extreme inconvenience and anxiety; and loss of liberty.

“Police Officer Antonini, among others, and the Westchester County Police Department, together with the Westchester County District Attorney’s office, conspired to imprison a man and violate his civil and constitutional rights,” Ms. Raysor said. “The officers and the DA’s office need to be held responsible for this miscarriage of justice.”
