Soros-Backed Alvin Bragg Defeated: Judge Dismisses Charges Against NY Bodega Worker

Soros-backed New York District Attorney was dealt a massive blow today after a New York judge dismissed murder charges against a bodega worker who was accused of murder after defending himself against a violent attack.

Bragg, who let the assailant out multiple times on low bail after he committed multiple violent crimes, attempted to charge Jose Alba with murder and stick him with a $250,000 bail.

He faced widespread backlash from people across the political aisle in New York and across the country.

The case was a textbook example of how left-wing, Soros-backed prosecutors have turned their cities in to anarcho-tyrannical wastelands where crime is rapidly increasing.

Bragg was forced to dismiss the charges against Alba after a judge dropped them.  He admitted that he could not prove that Alba was “not justified” in his use of deadly force.

Charges were dropped Tuesday against a New York City bodega worker arrested for the murder of man seen on surveillance video first coming behind the cashier’s desk and attacking the employee.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office faced harsh criticism for bringing the charge against Jose Alba earlier this month despite footage suggesting the deadly stabbing was justified as self-defense.

Jennifer Sigall, assistant district attorney under Bragg, issued a motion Tuesday morning to dismiss the second-degree murder charge against Alba and provided a copy to his attorney, Michelle Villasenor-Grant.

Fox News confirmed that a judge dismissed the charge against Alba by Tuesday afternoon.

“Following an investigation, the People have determined that we cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant was not justified in his use of deadly physical force. As such, the People will not be presenting the case to a Grand Jury and for the reasons provided in the attached memorandum, hereby move to dismiss the complaint,” Bragg’s office wrote in court documents obtained by Fox News.

Editor’s note: The story of Jose Alba became national news after the store clerk was charged with murder in the death of Austin Simon, who forcefully entered the employee’s-only area after a failed scan of his girlfriend’s EBT card. Fox News wrote that Simon “shoved Alba against a wall of shelving, and grabbed him by the collar to lift him out of a chair and force him out of the employees-only area.”

During this physically encounter, and while still being held by the collar, Alba then grabbed a knife and stabbed at Simon repeatedly. A medical examiner reported that Simon suffered six separate stab injuries, including one in the left side of his neck that punctured his jugular vein and led to bleeding out.
