CARMEL – Charges against a Wappingers Falls man accused of defrauding an ATM business of over $500,000 have been dismissed by a Putnam County Judge.
The indictment was dismissed on Friday against Dean Mogan. “We are pleased that County Court Judge James Reitz saw this case as one based on insufficient evidence,” said Thomas R. Davis of Stenger, Roberts, Davis & Diamond attorney for Mr. Mogan. “We have maintained all along that Mr. Mogan was being prosecuted for a crime he did not commit.”
While the Judge permitted the Putnam County District Attorney’s office to re-present the case to a different Grand Jury, Davis said, “We are hopeful that the District Attorney’s office will take a second look at this case and realize further prosecution is ill advised.”
Davis, a Wappingers Falls attorney, said this is the second time charges against Mr. Mogan have been dismissed. Charges related to the alleged fraud were dismissed earlier this year in the Town of Patterson Court on speedy trial grounds.
“Hopefully, Mr. Mogan will now be able to put this whole horrible experience behind him,” Davis said.
