In the aftermath of the verdicts in the CDTA bus trial, Alice Green of the Center for Law and Justice in Albany says she thought the jury got the verdicts right.
Asha Burwell and Ariel Agudio were found guilty of falsely reporting an incident, but not guilty of assault, attempted assault and harassment.
Burwell and Agudio said they were the victims of a racially motivated attack and subject to racial taunts on the bus at the end of January 2016.
Prosecutors say their investigation revealed Agudio and Burwell were the aggressors.
Green says that she thought D.A. David Soares was overly aggressive in the case.
Soares says he had no choice but to take on the case, after he says the girls failed to apologize for their actions.
