Trio get offers to plead

Newsday


Campanelli called the case against his clients “fictitious” and said he would reject the offers

Three defendants under a four hundred and ninety-two (492) count indictment, who are accused of illegal dumping in and around the town of Islip, were offered plea deals from the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office.

Andrew J. Campanelli, an attorney representing two of the defendants, called the case against his clients “fictitious” and said he would reject the plea offers.

After the case went to trial, but before the defense began presenting any defense to the jury, all charges against Mr. Campanelli’s clients were dismissed.
