The aggravated assault charge is graded as a first-degree felony, which under state law carries a maximum prison term of 20 years.
Veteri remains free on $250,000 bail pending sentencing on Oct. 26.
...20-years of running from Bogs and "The Sisters" in prison? Sounds fair to me.
So justice has been served, in part. Auricchio's attorney's are reportedly going to pursue a civil suit against Veteri so there is still more to this. But it's good to know that this clown will be put in the sin bin for a while. The aggravated assault charge is a first-degree felony, meaning that it will stay on his record permanently and he faces a maximum sentence of 20 years (though he'll likely get less than that).
Sickens me still to this day when I read about this incident. Woodbridge, NJ is right in my backyard and I hope Auricchio is doing better. I'm sure Veteri is remorseful about what he did: If he isn't then he isn't human. But this shows once again how alcohol and sports can sometimes make a volatile combo.
H/T to Puck Daddy and reader Dan W.
it really feels so awful inside to watch someone, anyone get mauled like that on the street in an unfair dominated way. but to see that happen to an off-duty cop and a veteran of the us military? wow.
that's why this post is GREAT news. this kid is going to the clink and is going to get his asshole resized everyday in the showers.
crass but true. sorry.
