Unicyclist Exonerated

As reported in the New York Post, Isaih Rosemond  appeared before Manhattan Judge John Delury who dismissed the ticket after having to read up on the the statute involved. The judge reportedly offered Isaih an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal, or ACD. Upon learning that the accepting the ACD meant that he would have to stay out of trouble for six months in order for the ticket to be dismissed, Isaih refused to accept the ACD asking for a jury trial instead.  The judge being faced with this request actually read the law involved and determined that a unicycle is not described in the law. There is a more thorough article with deeper analysis regarding Isaih's trip to court written in the Simple Justice Blog.
