    Rare Case Where Defendant Was Properly Convicted of Depraved Indifference Murder When Only One Victim Was Endangered

    The Second Department determined the evidence was sufficient to support defendant's conviction for depraved indifference murder. Defendant's child was the victim and the only person endangered by the defendant's conduct. There was evidence defendant deliberately made the child sick over a period of years and ultimately caused the child's death by forcing salt into the child through the child's feeding tube. People v. Spears, 2017 N.Y. Slip Op. 07148, Second Dept 10-11-17

  • About CasePrepPlus

    New York appellate courts release, on average, between 150 and 200 decisions per week. The CasePrepPlus service summarizes the most significant decisions, which include substantive discussions of the facts and the law, into one-paragraph summaries, which are prefaced by succinct headings, allowing the reader to quickly decide whether a case is of interest. Each summary is linked to the full decision. Keeping up with the decisions released the week before, a process which could easily take an individual attorney numerous hours every week, takes only minutes with CasePrepPlus.

    Summaries are written by Rochester-based attorney Bruce Freeman. For his bio, click here.
