Woman Suing Rockland DA and Judge

A lawsuit has been filed against Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe and Judge Charles Apotheker by a woman who claims she was denied her right to speak against a plea deal they offered her assailant in 2013. Patrizia Caruso of Airmont accused her coworker at Good Samaritan Hospital, Charles Edwards, of verbally harassing her and severely beating her in one incident in June of last year and now claims that she was forced to defend a misdemeanor charge of harassment when she slapped Edwards in defense of him calling her sexual names, and she was denied a say in the deal that gave Edwards probation for his felony charge of second-degree attempted assault. Caruso is asking federal court to step in and rethink the deal.
