L.I. Man Admits To DWI In Crash That Killed Cop

NEW YORK (1010 WINS/CBS 2) — A Long Island man accused of killing a police officer in a fiery crash last year pleaded guilty Monday to vehicular manslaughter and aggravated driving while intoxicated.

Jose Borbon, 24, of Plainview, admitted to being drunk and talking on his cell phone when he smashed into Officer Glen Ciano’s police car in Commack on the morning of Feb. 22, 2009.

Ciano, 45, was killed when the cruisers crashed into a utility pole and exploded in flames.

Borbon, who was arrested twice in two months for driving under the influence, faces five to 15 years behind bars.

Sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 22.

    No Mariela – most people are not that stupid. Consider yourself lucky if you have done it and never gotten caught or involved in a fatal accident. I don’t like the idea of someone with your attitude being allowed to drive at all.

        Everyone had a right to comment, so if you don’t like it go swallow your own tongue!!!

      jaja your too funny!!!

  4. mariela says:

    theirs no question about it people should not drink and drive but police officers with 22 years on service should not drive their cars over 100 mph with no lights and sirens especially when its not a real emergency !!!!

  5. Mike says:

    At least he owned up to his actions. Yeah, the attorney will try to get him the max but at least the family of the officer does not have to go through a trial and this guy is off the road at least for a while(years).

  6. Bill Dikant says:

    Give this Killer 30 years just like New Jersy did.
