Plea deal ends Windham man's road rage case that was derailed by 'Laurie List' issue
Eller's conviction on charges of second-degree assault and reckless conduct was set aside by a Superior Court judge after his trial in April once it was discovered that former Pelham police Officer Eugene Stahl was on the state's 'Laurie List.'
Eller had expected to face a second trial on felony charges Dec. 16, but that was brought to an end as a result of Tuesday's plea agreement. He received a suspended six-month county jail sentence, and was ordered to perform 50 hours of community service.
Eller was charged by police after a May 2011 crash on Windham Road in Pelham. Prosecutors accused Eller, then 18, of forcing a motorcycle off the road as it tried to pass him.
The defense learned of Stahl being on the state's Laurie List one day after the first trial, when prosecutors notified him they had failed to notify the defense about it.
Kaye said on Wednesday that he has submitted materials to the state Supreme Court's Rules Committee, suggesting that defense lawyers should be given access to so-called exculpatory materials that prosecutors privately submit to a judge.
Kaye said the defense should be able to view such materials in the judge's chambers and be subject to a confidentiality agreement.
She is also now serving on a committee with the Attorney General's Office to clarify practices and procedures regarding the Laurie List.
"That couldn't be further from the truth," she said. Other names have been put on the list out of an abundance of caution by area police chiefs, who have rank-and-file officers who simply made a mistake while on the job, according to LaFrance.
