Judge Drops Bail in SBU Stabbing Case

Stabbing victim reported to judge that he had struck first, according to Newsday.

Bail was dropped on Sunday for a Syosset man and Stony Brook University student who is charged with stabbing another student, after the stabbing victim reported to a Suffolk judge that he was the first one to strike in the incident.

According to Newsday, bail for 25-year-old Richard Im – a senior majoring in business and biology who commutes to school – was dropped to $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond.

The incident reportedly happened early Saturday morning while Im was attempting to purchase marijuana from the victim.

Im's father told Newsday: "It was more of a mistake. More of not knowing the right thing to do rather than a criminal intention ... I know for a fact that he cannot kill a little bird. It's such a shock, but then again, drugs make people do crazy things."
