  • It is Suffolk County Court Judge Arthur G. Pitts who is a joke. That genius is still a Judge!

  • You may also get a discount if you take a defensive driving course. If there is a young driver on the policy who is a good student, has taken a drivers education course or is at a college out of the area without a car, you may also qualify for a lower rate. search online for “Clearance Auto Insurance” they are the best for student drivers

  • Sentencing is today. News 12 was kind enough to call my parents this morning.
    I don’t know what to think? I hope someone in the “system” can offer a way to rehabilitate this young man. His choices are very dangerous … our only effort can go towards getting him out of the community for a while. I pray he finds his way because I for one am tired of hearing about his mistakes… would honor my brother’s memory to hear good news about this man changing his life around …. 11 years later and he is still living the same sad story. Pathetic. Thanks for all the community support.

  • I went to high school with this guy. He has always been a drug using violent person. There is no rehabilitation for this type of person.

  • I predict that, This Serial “HIGHWAY TERRORIST” will be sentenced to 5 year’s————————————————————–>PROBATION. The standard here in N.Y.S. . D.W.I. is Americas only socially accepted crime of violence.This is due to many who pity the poor TERRORIST”, balme addiction , Alcoholism and any other of the social ills that abound.All this after Killing someone with prior D.W.I, and only being sentenced to 7 years , and what may I ask did he serve in real time
    Or better yet what was the Real Time dentence?.
