Jesse Friedman, who pleaded guilty in a high-profile Great Neck child molestation case, is asking a court to overturn his 1988 plea and set aside his conviction.
Manhattan attorney Ronald Kuby on Monday filed the legal motion in Nassau County Court in Mineola, the latest effort in a years long battle by Friedman and his supporters to clear his name.
“I never committed a crime against any child, ever,” Friedman, 45, of Bridgeport, Connecticut, said Tuesday.
The court filing seeks an evidentiary hearing on his conviction “based on actual innocence” and includes an affidavit from attorney Barry Scheck of The Innocence Project.
