Amanda Purcell from HudsonValley360 is steadfastly following the case of the Crosswalk Four, two of whom appear in the picture at the right. They were back in court yesterday, and Purcell reports what transpired: "No deal reached in crosswalk case." The district attorney had proposed dismissing the case in exchange for the culprits doing community service with the Department of Public Works; the attorney for the defendants argues that mandating community service with DPW could be interpreted as "punishment or retribution by the DPW." The case was adjourned until March 5. City judge Jack Connor is quoted as commenting, "If we don't have some sort of resolution by then, we will begin on the discovery schedule and this case will be headed for trial."
