William Bryan Jennings, the Darien banker who had been accused of cutting a New York cab driver's hand with a pen knife during a dispute over a cab fare in December 2011, is reportedly trying to get millions in deferred compensation from his former employer, Morgan Stanley.
According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Jennings, who saw was fired from the firm just weeks prior to the court's ruling.
Jennings had been facing up to five years for second-degree assault, theft of services and intimidation by bias or bigotry in connection with the highly-publicized "hate crime," however a judge dismissed the charges because cab driver Mohamed Ammar had the pen knife — a key piece of evidence — in his possession for months after the incident before turning it over to police.
Jennings is seeking up to $5 million in deferred compensation, according to the report.
