Spring Valley Man’s Criminally Negligent Homicide Conviction Overturned

A Spring Valley man’s criminally negligent homicide conviction has been overturned by a state appeals panel. Phylip Derival had been found guilty in the non-jury trial after a 2013 accident on the Palisades Parkway in which 26 year-old Justin Goings, a passenger in his car, was killed. The Journal News says the panel voted 3-2, deciding the Rockland District Attorney’s witnesses lacked credibility and sometimes gave contradictory testimony.
