This is great. The guy's on the lam, and, for an alias, he uses "Rashad Hamid". Don't make it something a little more generic and unnoticeable like "Willie Jones", or "Robert Johnson". Nope, it Rashad Hamid. I can't believe this guy stayed free for over fifteen years. Clearly, he's no Rhodes scholar.

If he has a prior conviction for murder, he is facing life with no chance of parole.

Former cop & NYFD here.

Each case is like a fingerprint; in that, no two are the same. The DA has already decided there's enough to try him for the charge.

Defenses and affirmative defenses ( justification, infancy, duress, entrapment, renunciation, mental disease, etc) are interposed in court. Which way the jury is pursuaded is always a gamble, particularly if his prior convictions are ruled inadmissable.

A disadvantage to an indictment is that only attempts can be considered for pleas, such as attempted murder which is still a class B Felony. That's why some savvy attorneys agree to be prosecuions on a Superior Court Information and wave Grand Jury. Still, attempted murder would bring him 25 years. That's enough for me.

I can't wait to read about the law suit with the Governor of Alabama suing Bloomberg for exporting criminals.

Sorry for the wrong association. There's a very good family here with the same name. I know, cause my dopey kid hit their car.

They were very kind about it and we dealt with this without going through insurance.(ouch)
