Man Indicted in Broad Daylight Shooting of 5-Year-Old NYC Girl as City Reels From Boy's Death

An 18-year-old Brooklyn man has been arraigned on an indictment in which he is charged with attempted murder and attempted assault for allegedly shooting a 5-year-old girl in the head as she played with her siblings on a sidewalk in East New York.

It is very fortunate that this young victim did not lose her life and that none of her siblings were hurt. We will never tolerate such reckless gun violence in Brooklyn that far too often jeopardizes the lives of innocent bystanders and will now work to bring this defendant to justice.

An 18-year-old Brooklyn man has been indicted on charges of attempted murder and attempted assault for allegedly opening fire in East New York early one April evening, grazing a 5-year-old girl in the head with a bullet as she played with her siblings on the sidewalk, the district attorney’s offic...

Bronx woman indicted in fatal ‘execution-style’ shooting of ex-girlfriend: DA

This broad-daylight shooting tragically cut short the life of a beloved mother and a treasured member of a local neighborhood and faith-based community. The horrific violence this defendant allegedly committed was shocking and senseless.

I encourage anyone experiencing violence or abuse at the hands of an intimate partner or a former partner to contact the trained counselors of our Victim Services Unit at 718-250-3820.

Attempted Rapist Followed Woman Home From Subway In Brooklyn: DA

A Flatbush man has been arraigned on an indictment in which he is charged with assault, burglary, sexual abuse, forcible touching and other charges for allegedly following a woman from the subway to her apartment building and attacking the victim during an attempted rape.

We will continue to vigorously prosecute cases of sexual violence and get justice for victims.

Kareem Gilmore was arraigned Monday for the March attack, when he tried to rape a woman in her apartment building, according to prosecutors.

I am proud to join this effort by Fair and Just Prosecution. Congress must act now to protect the right to vote.

“Today we are speaking out and standing together to protect a fundamental right of our democracy that is under attack. Doing nothing is simply not an option.”

The right to vote is under attack. State legislatures are restricting and criminalizing voting at a frenzied pace not seen since the Jim Crow era. Today, 95 elected prosecutors, Attorneys General, and law enforcement leaders say: enough.

Congress must end this assault on democracy. Doing nothing is not an option.

Thanks to these leaders for standing up and standing together. Read more here: https://bit.ly/3z7SzMR

Crown Heights Man Faces 15 Years In Prison For Fatal Crash: DA

With the help of our Street Safety Bureau, we have stepped up indictments against drivers who kill or injure others.

A Crown Heights man has been indicted for reckless manslaughter and related charges in connection with a vehicular crash that killed a 53-year-old woman who was legally crossing a Flatlands street in December 2020. This defendant allegedly made a series of dangerous decisions that led to him speeding the wrong way on a one-way street into a busy intersection, causing a pedestrian to lose her life.

Michael Rajpaul's car spun into a woman walking across an East 55th Street crosswalk after a "series of dangerous decisions," the DA said.

06/03/2021

Studies show that those who identify as LGBTQ+ are likely to experience intimate partner violence at rates that are equal to or higher than heterosexuals. LGBTQ+ communities also face unique barriers when they are attempting to report violence and access care.

This is one of the many reasons why culturally-responsive services are so critical.

Despite similar rates of domestic violence in the LGBTQIA community compared to cisgender and heterosexual communities, LGBTQIA people often face unique barriers to leaving abuse. If resources and services aren't inclusive, LGBTQIA victims can feel isolated and misunderstood. Learn more: https://buff.ly/34UxVSR

Woman Stole $1.3M Through Brooklyn Real Estate 'Ponzi Scheme': DA

This defendant allegedly created an elaborate ploy to convince people to invest their money in what amounted to a Ponzi scheme. This is another example where Brooklyn’s valuable real estate market was exploited for criminal gains. We will now seek to get justice for the many individuals who were swindled out of thousands of dollars.

Regine Norman told victims she'd use their money to buy Brooklyn properties through a fake private auction company, prosecutors said.
