3 Months ago, Daniel Gill, the ShopRite employee who allegedly slapped Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani on the back is facing multiple criminal charges. Gill, who was caught on video “slapping” Giuliani, is being charged with assault with intent to cause physical injury, second-degree harassment, and third-degree menacing.
The employee even shouted to Giuliani as he droned on about Roe v Wade, “You’re a f*cking scumbag!”
And it was all caught on camera obtained by The New York Post.
Later that day, Rudy discussed the attack:

But that was 3 months ago…NOW, he is getting a FREE pass on the assault he made.
Gill who was charged with assault after slapping Rudy Giuliani on the back in June can have the charges dropped as long as he stays out of legal trouble for six months, according to the Richmond County district attorney’s office in New York.
Gill accepted the deal Wednesday after facing initial charges of assault with intent to cause physical injury, harassment in the second degree, and menacing in the third degree.
More details of this report from CNN:
The case against the man accused of slapping Rudy Giuliani on the back in a Staten Island supermarket has been adjourned “in contemplation of dismissal,” and is expected to be dismissed in six months, according to a source with knowledge of the case.
Daniel Gill, a ShopRite employee, was charged with assault with intent to cause physical injury, harassment in the second degree, and menacing in the third degree for allegedly slapping Giuliani.
The organization representing Gill has previously said that their client “merely patted” the former mayor of New York City “without malice to simply get his attention.”
It is not an admission of guilt or wrongdoing, nor is it a guilty plea, the source said, adding that Gill was not required or asked to agree to anything as part of the adjournment.
In New York state, an adjournment “in contemplation of dismissal” is “not considered favorable to the defendant until the adjournment period has expired and the case has actually been dismissed,” according to the court system.
