Albany Attorney Named Special Prosecutor in Lentini Retrtial

Maria Lentini

A special prosecutor has been appointed in the upcoming retrial of Maria Lentini.

She was convicted of leaving the scene of a crash in 2015, where she struck and killed Patrick Duff, who was walking in her lane of traffic.

She appealed the conviction and was granted a new trial. 

A judge has ruled that prosecutors gave special treatment to a prosecution witness in the case by not reporting that he was in violation of the terms of his probation.

High profile Albany Attorney Lee Kindlon has been named a special prosecutor in the case and will have the resources of the DA'S office, but DA Karen Heggen and her assistants are barred from being involved.
