Prosecutor Patrick Collins disagreed with Traft’s assessment.
“I think all of these issues were vetted with counsel during and after the trial,” Collins said, referring to Maroskos’ prior lawyer.
“I think it would be unfair to the victim to change course at this point,” Collins said.
Judge Robert Brennan said that he did not see the same odds of success on appeal that Traft argued and called the restitution “appropriate and reasonable.”
He denied the request for a stay.
