The defense attorney for a Buffalo Police Officer and former Common Council member is building an argument in a coming felony fraud case.

Robert Quintana is accused of improperly collecting benefits while on leave from police duty due to an injury. During that time he worked at a family restaurant. The defense claims Quintana could only work a few hours a week and was not compensated.

The charges could bring a twenty year prison sentence.
