Case dropped against NY lawyer in alleged attack

Legal Expert News Posted on

Charges have been dropped against a prominent New York lawyer who was accused of attacking a woman in a Connecticut restaurant.

The Advocate of Stamford reports that Albert J. Pirro's lawyer said the state indicated it would not prosecute. Charges were dropped in Stamford Superior Court on Tuesday.

A spokesman for the state's attorney's office did not immediately return a call Wednesday.

Police say Pirro grabbed and shook a woman in a Greenwich restaurant last June. He was charged with unlawful restraint and disorderly conduct.

Pirro, a Republican fundraiser, is the estranged husband of Jeanine Pirro, a former Westchester District Attorney who is now a legal analyst with Fox News.

Albert Pirro spent 17 months in prison after being convicted of fraud, tax evasion and other charges in 2000.
