Chad Cook, shareholder with Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C., who practices in the firm’s Mass Torts Section, joins attorneys and co-hosts Bob Ambrogi and J. Craig Williams on the broadcast program “Lawyer to Lawyer” to discuss the legal implications surrounding pharmacy errors and pharmacy misfills. Recently a young woman was mistakenly given the wrong medication intended for another customer at a Safeway pharmacy in Colorado. Cook says these errors happen more often than people would think, citing an Auburn University School of Pharmacy study that revealed one out of every 1,000 prescriptions filled was in error, which would equal about 3.5 million errors every year based on national prescription volume.

In this video, Attorney Mike Cyr expains what the legal term “Conviction” means in New York…
We get phone calls all the time with questions about legal issues in New York or confusion over legal terminology. One such question about the word “conviction” gave us the idea for this video.
You can be “convicted” in New York of all different kinds of things. You can be convicted for a traffic ticket –or you could be convicted for MURDER! That’s a huge range of crime.
The word just means that you pled guilty to something (or were found guilty of something) in New York. It means that you were found to be responsible for something… now that could be for a speeding ticket, or a misdemeanor, or the most serious crime in NY, a felony.
So if somebody says to you, “I was convicted in New York.” All that tells you is that they had some brush with the NY legal system, it DOES NOT tell you what sort of traffic violation or crime they were involved in…so you need to ask.
I hope this video is helpful. If you have any additional questions about the New York criminal system (or a case you are facing), call us: 607-229-5184
