Brian Ball, a former Greece Police Sergeant, was accused of falsifying a document in a fatal car crash back in 2005. He allegedly closed the case before the toxicology report on the driver in question was completed. The toxicology test came back positive for marijuana.
Ball appealed and the judge ruled that Ball was not given adequate opportunity to testify on his own behalf in front of the grand jury that indicted him. The judge also found that the people’s case was lacking in substance and that the evidence presented was not sufficient to establish a prima facie case that Ball committed the alleged crimes.
The District Attorney plans to appeal this decision and the family of the 18-year-old woman who was killed in the crash is angry, devastated, and disheartened by the ruling.
