Citizenship denied because of faulty arrest record
A grand jury was convened in the matter, but according to a letter written to Kulon in June 2000 by Sullivan County Assistant District Attorney Karen Mannino, D’Ambrose pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of reckless endangerment and left the area.
Kulon’s lawyer, William Brenner, said he thought the decision by CNS to deny Kulon’s application for citizenship was erroneous because all of the charges against Kulon made by D’Ambrose should have been erased from the record.
Kulon said he will appeal the CNS decision and, in the meantime, Hinchey’s office is considering his request.
Kulon said that if he can’t achieve citizenship, he is considering leaving the United States and may re-settle in Russia or somewhere else in Europe. But he can’t do that right now because officially he is a man without a state.
