NYC Real Estate Big Wig Charged for Violating Leandra's Law

Robert K. Futterman, 52, of Greenwich, Conn., arrested for allegedly driving drunk with kids in car.

The founder and CEO of Manhattan real estate and management firm Robert K. Futterman & Associates was pulled over in Bridgehampton Saturday night and charged with aggravated DWI under Leandra's Law, which elevates a DWI charge to a felony if there is a child passenger in the vehicle.

said Robert K. Futterman, 52, of Greenwich, Conn., was driving southbound on Sag Harbor Turnpike when he was stopped at 10:27 p.m. for failing to maintain his travel lane. Police said it was determined he was intoxicated, and there were four children in the vehicle, all younger than 16.

Futterman was additionally charged with four counts of endangering the welfare of a child and a count of aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. He was held overnight and arraigned in Southampton Town Justice Court.

I hope that this guy gets what any other guy would get in the same circumstances ... that he gets the justice that's due him and that his wealth won't get in the way
