Mistrial declared in Islip Town fraud case

Newsday


During a trial within which his clients were charged with over four hundred (400) counts of fraud and the alleged filing of false instruments, defense attorney Andrew J. Campanelli uncovered the fact that falsified evidence had been presented to the grand jury, which then returned the indictments against his clients based, in part, upon that falsified evidence.

After Mr. Campanelli’s discovery was presented to the Court, the Court granted the defense attorneys’ joint motion for a mistrial.
