White Plains, NY — In court papers regarding the case of The People of the State of New York versus Selim Zherka obtained today by Yonkers Tribune, a decision after the trial referred to as Docket #08-5013, the court ascertained that the defendant, Selim Zherka, violated two counts of disorderly conduct in violation of Penal Code in an altercation that took place in the late morning of October 31, 2008 (date corrected by editor after initial posting error), in the City Hall of Mount Vernon. The violations noted are that Mr Zherka "did refuse to leave the public hallway of 1 Roosevelt Square while yelling at your deponent (Police Officer Morris). 'I pay your fu**ing salary. You shouldn't be a fu**cking cop.' Further, when Police Officer Mossis asked Mr Zherka to leave the area, Mr Zherka said, 'I am not leaving until I speak to the Mayor and the commissioner.'"
Mr Zherka, a/k/a Sam Zherka, asserts the testimony given the court is a "fabrication."
The court found that "the defendant's guilt on both the charges of disorderly conduct was established beyond a reasonable doubt."
The Count found the defendant, Selim "Sam" Zherka guilty on both counts of disorderly conduct on October 5, 2009, in which the Honorable Adam Seiden, Associate City Judge of Mount Vernon, presided.
Sentencing will take place November 20, 2009.
