A New York Criminal Lawyer said this is an Appeal by defendant from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Kings County, rendered November 7, 1980, convicting him of possession of burglar’s tools, attempted criminal trespass in the second degree and attempted petit larceny, upon a jury verdict, and imposing sentence.
A Kings County Criminal lawyer said that on March 8, 1980 the complainant was alone in her fifth floor apartment when she heard a knock at her door. She did not answer as she was undressed at the time and was not expecting any company. After hearing a noise, she approached the door and observed that someone was at her door and was trying to gain entry. She then called the police, heard children in the hall and heard whoever was at the door walk away. Upon patting down the codefendant, a loaded revolver was recovered and a search of the appellant yielded a key with which the arresting officer was able to unlock one of the locks on the complainant’s apartment door.
