Thanks to the relentless hard work of Attorney Scott Gross, a former nurse
is freed from jail after serving four months of her nine month sentence.
Attorney Gross’ client, Kimberly Lappe, was ordered to be released
from Suffolk County Jail on Friday, where she was serving time after being
charged -- along with several other staff members -- in the death of a
Medford nursing home resident.
Advocating For What’s Right
Kimberly was convicted of five charges and sentenced in October. Attorney
Gross has since then actively petitioned to State Supreme Court Justice
John M. Leventhal, telling him that the judge who oversaw Kimberly’s
trial made an error in sentencing her to five years’ probation and
nine months in jail. Attorney Gross argued that the maximum punishment
was five years’ probation and sixth months in jail.
During trial, Attorney Gross was able to point out gaping holes and inconsistencies
in the prosecution. His aggressive approach and cross confrontation resulted
in the prosecution’s key witness admitting in lying to jurors.
Attorney Scott Goss said in light of her early release, Kimberly is looking
forward to giving her family a “big hug.” The appellate court
justice has suspended her sentence temporarily and has given Kimberly
120 days to file an appeal.
