Fried, who along with four other Hasidic men stood accused of brutally beating 24 year-old Taj Patterson in Williamsburg back in December of 2013, became the second defendant to have his charges dropped after the prosecution’s lone eyewitness recanted.

Fried’s attorney Susan Necheles said, “We are very happy the District Attorney did the right thing and dismissed the charges against an innocent person.”
