Former New City Attorney to be Sentenced to Jail Time

On Tuesday Judge Barry Warhit told a disbarred New City attorney that he will be going to jail when he is sentenced on April 1. Joel Grossbarth appeared in Rockland County Court on Tuesday for charges that he received in March 2013 of felony counts of second- degree grand larceny and one count of second- degree forgery, after he was arrested for stealing money from twenty clients over five years. According to Warhit, Grossbarth had promised to pay back the debt in June, paying $297,086 leaving $849,470 unpaid. Warhit stated that Grossbarth has had plenty of time to pay and the courts are waiting for a promised $250,000 bail and three payments of $200,000 from his mother. Prosecutor for the case, Gary Lee Heavner stated that the court will not be accepting his promise of payments as reason to continue adjourning the case, and he will be sentenced on April 1.
