  DA Soares Declines Prosecution of


Ellazar Williams

ALBANY, NY -  District Attorney P. David Soares today announced that the Office of the Albany County District Attorney will decline to prosecute the case against Ellazar Williams.

“It is my job as District Attorney to conduct a thorough and independent investigation into charged crimes separate from an initial police investigation,” commented District Attorney David Soares. “This matter was fully and thoroughly investigated by my staff, with the ultimate conclusion that while there may be a credible case to be made, there is nothing to be gained. Punishment of Mr. Williams is not in anyone’s best interest.”
