This opinion is uncorrected and will not be published in the printed Official Reports.
PRESENT: NICOLAI, P.J., LaCAVA and IANNACCI, JJ
The judgment convicted defendant, after a non-jury trial, of violating chapter 174.8 (B) (1) of the Code of the Village of Plandome Manor.
ORDERED that the judgment of conviction is reversed, on the law, the accusatory instrument is dismissed, and the fine, if paid, is remitted.
The evidence at the non-jury trial failed to establish that defendant maintained accessory structures on the front yard of her home in violation of chapter 174.8 (B) (1) of the Code of the Village of Plandome Manor. Rather, the evidence indicated that the structures in question are located on municipal property and not on defendant's property. Accordingly, the judgment of conviction is reversed, the accusatory instrument is dismissed and the fine, if paid, is remitted.
Nicolai, P.J., and LaCava, J., concur.
Iannacci, J., taking no part.
