The Newburgh DA, David M. Hoovler, also thanked the City of Newburgh Police Department for their investigation, and subsequent arrest of the defendant, issuing the following statement:

Those who choose to use violence and weapons to settle disputes deserve lengthy state prison sentences.  Victims of this type of violence not only suffer long-lasting physical and emotional trauma, but the entire community feels unsafe with this type of violence on our streets. It must stop. My office will strongly advocate that this defendant be sentenced to over a decade in state prison. I hope that this deters anyone considering engaging in similar conduct.
