Corasanti lawyers targeted with death threats
The lawyers who represented Dr. James Corasanti during his recent trial say they've been targeted with death threats.
Corasanti was acquitted of the felony charges lodged against him this week after the car he was driving struck and killed Alexandria Rice on Heim Road in Amherst last July.
Attorney Cheryl Meyers-Buth told the Buffalo News the day after the acquittal was "unnerving." She admits such threats "can be part of the job for a defense attorney."
Meyers-Buth said a "very disturbing letter" sent to Corasanti has been turned over to Amherst Police.
Another of his attorneys, Thomas Burton, says Corasanti, his wife and son have left town for a while.
