Michael Barisone Wiki, Wikipedia, Dressage, Trial, Wife, Net Worth, Shooting, Wife, Girlfriend – The ex-Olympian Michael Barisone, who was cleared of attempted murder and found not guilty by reason of insanity after a trial last year, had his defence attorneys ask the judge to forbid the public and media from attending future hearings that include medical testimony and updates on his mental health.
The elite equestrian athlete-turned-coach’s trial was held in April 2022, and one of the two solicitors who represented him was Chris Deininger. Chris Deininger argued that any further disclosure of Barisone’s mental health information would be a violation of Barisone’s rights under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, a federal statute that grants people control over their health information. He pointed out that Barisone’s acquittal ought to preclude any upcoming exposure of his client’s medical background.
Michael Barisone, an ex-Olympian, has been free of all charges for about a year now. Here’s the most recent
Judge Stephen Taylor was shocked by the defence counsel’ lack of protest when Barisone’s psychiatric data was “broadcast to the entire United States and who knows where else, internationally,” after hearing the arguments on Wednesday in state Superior Court in Morristown.
Taylor added in his denial, “I am a little taken aback by your worry now. There was no objection to his thorough mental background, child abuse difficulties, despair, or being broadcast live.
Media sources paid a lot of attention to Barisone’s accomplishments as a top dressage rider and later as a highly sought-after coach, with CBS airing a “48 Hours” feature on the trial. Law & Crime Network also provided live streaming of the 11-day trial.
In August 2019, Barisone, 58, was charged with shooting his tenant Lauren Kanarek twice on his posh estate in Long Valley. He allegedly fired a shot at Robert Goodwin, her fiancé, but it missed. Due to a rare mental impairment that existed at the time of the incident, the jury determined that Barisone was not guilty of attempted murder due to insanity and did not realise what he had done was unlawful.
After a flood of professionals testified, including doctors who claimed Barisone believed Kanarek and Goodwin were attempting to kill him, Barisone’s mental state came under scrutiny.
According to medical experts consulted by the defence team, Barisone was suffering from delusional beliefs that affected his thinking and made him scared for his life and paranoid prior to the shooting. Doctors claimed that because of his acute detachment from reality as a result of his mental illness, he was legally proclaimed insane when he grabbed his revolver out of the safe, drove to his farmhouse, and shot Kanarek twice.
Kanarek was shot twice in the upper chest and put into a medically induced coma to repair major damage to her left lung throughout the 11-day trial. She delivered her own emotional evidence during that time.
After being found not guilty, Barisone spent some time at Trenton’s Ann Klein Forensic Centre before being transferred to Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital, where he is still today. When a defendant is cleared of all charges, they are frequently ordered to treatment and called back to court on a regular basis for updates. At this point, the judge decides whether or not to allow the person to be released back into society.
After the trial, Barisone appeared in court for the first time in September. The judge expressed concern that he might not be prepared for release, but Barisone agreed to discuss his treatment status on Wednesday.
Although the hearing has been postponed until late April, Barisone and three doctors were scheduled to appear on Wednesday. Taylor noted on Wednesday that Barisone’s latest appearance saw him clean-shaven and sporting a new haircut, a significant contrast to his trial appearance when he appeared withdrawn and weak.
