Two weeks ago, Lidia Rodriguez admitted to the same charge of lying to police. After some deliberation, Lauranzano imposed a guilty finding but not the jail time requested by prosecutors.
Her lawyer had asked that the case be continued without a finding to preserve her ability to obtain public housing. After a “sidebar” discussion with the judge, Lauranzano advised her attorney to file a motion seeking to revise the disposition within 60 days.
The attorney filed the motion two days later, on Jan. 29; it is still pending.
