Press Release of the Week

In regard to the botched DWI case against SUNY police officer Jason Horvath, David Soares invoked the Bart Simpon defense:
I didn't do it! Nobody saw me do it! You can't prove anything!
Nobody from the DA's office showed up at Guilderland Town Court for an evidence hearing in Mr. Horvath's case, so he ended up with a speeding charge. Rather than accept any responsibility, Soares engaged in a wild bout of press release finger pointing, detailing how the court should have covered the butt of his ADA.
Of the "5000 cases" his office handles yearly in Guilderland Town Court, Soares said, "It is not surprising that there is an occasionally(sic) hiccup or a glitch on the part of the Court, the prosecution or the defense counsel."
