Tell Us: Is 10 Years A Just Sentence?

Convicted man left Nassau Police officer unable to work; Is 10 years enough punishment?

An Amityville man got 10 years in prison Tuesday for causing a 2011 crash on the Southern State Parkway in Farmingdale that badly injured a Nassau County Police officer.

24, braked hard during a high-speed chase, forcing the police cruiser to crash and then fled the scene. The chase began in North Massapequa. The officer still can't work.

Our question: Is 10 years behind bars justified. Too little? About right?

How angry do incidents like this make you?

He deserved life

This is too short a sentence for this offense. This mans actions have changed the course of so many others lives and not for the better. Whatever happened to true justice. Doesn't anyone care anymore.

kathleen rice is a joke....the only way she goes for a max penalty is if its a cop being charged.

not long enough for the damage he did to a police officer and her family

Definetly not long enough. I saw the news clip and the fact that he showed no remorse proves it!!

Was anyone else injured in this incident?

If there were stiffer penalties maybe the "bad guys" would think twice before breaking the law. As far as the poor cop, her life is changed forever, hes getting 3 squares & free medical.........
