Panel Faults Probation Penalty in Teen Abuse Case

, New York Law Journal


"We're very pleased that the Appellate Division agreed with us that the ACD was appropriate in this case," said Judith Waksberg, director of the appeals unit of Legal Aid's juvenile rights practice. "Family Court is a court of rehabilitation and not a place to punish kids."

The city was represented by former Special Assistant Corporation Counsel Moon Choi, who has since left the office. In a statement the office said, "We are disappointed with the court's decision and believe that Probation was the least restrictive alternative."
