FundFire – Ex-GSAM Employee, Fired After Assault Claims, Gets Felony Charge Reduced
A former institutional salesman at Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM) who was fired earlier this year after being arrested twice for allegedly attacking a woman has had a felony charge against him reduced to a misdemeanor, court documents obtained by FundFire reveal.
In the ongoing case, Joseph Karwosky faces claims that he punched his girlfriend last April, and allegedly choked a woman in a separate incident this May, as first reported by Bloomberg.
The most recent claim of choking, which initially resulted in a strangulation charge – a felony in New York – was reduced last month to a misdemeanor offense, minutes from Oct. 11 court proceedings in Manhattan state. As such, Karwosky currently faces two misdemeanor charges related to the alleged attacks, his attorney tells FundFire.
