Attempted murder convict on the run in Albany County
An attempted murder convict has escaped from court in Albany County.
According to the Albany County District Attorney’s Office, 36-year-old Michael Green, aka Michael Edwards, was there Friday to hear the jury verdict be read. However, Green fled the courthouse before it was announced.
Back in 2020, Green was in a moving vehicle, and fired a gun in the area of 119 Old Loudon Road in Colonie. Many people were in the building at the time – including young kids.
Green faces up to 25 years in prison.
Paul DerOhannesian is a local attorney not working on the case. He believes Green will be caught sooner or later. He says when someone is convicted of a serious crime, it is hard for them to stay on the run. Plus, he believes when Green is caught, he could potentially face more charges.
An Albany County DA spokesman says Albany police officers are looking for Green.
