Grocery store worker accused of slapping Rudy Giulani on his back won’t even get a pat on the wrist… if he keeps his nose clean for the next 6 months.
Daniel Gill appeared in a New York courtroom on Wednesday for allegedly assaulting old Rudy at a ShopRite in Staten Island, where Gill was working at the time in June. He was charged with assault, threats and harassment.
Prosecutors recommended an adjournment for dismissal, and Gill gladly accepted it. The ACD only asks him to stay out of trouble for 6 months to have his case thrown out and erased from his record. Gill must also avoid Rudy pursuant to a protective order issued by the judge, but he will NOT have to plead guilty to a crime as part of a deal.
The DA’s office said they would have struggled to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Gill intended to physically harm Rudy, so the ACD was their best option.
