Evan Sachs Gets 14-Year Prison Sentence In Child Stabbing At Dave & Buster’s

MINEOLA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A Long Island man who admitted stabbing a young boy five times at a restaurant video arcade was sentenced Thursday to serve 14 years in prison.

Evan Sachs pleaded guilty in July to attempted murder and assault. He admitted plunging a 4-inch hunting knife into the boy’s back at a Dave & Buster’s restaurant in Westbury last October.

The boy, who is now 9, survived.

The 23-year-old man’s attorney and his mother both said Sachs had a long history of mental illness. They say he expected to be shot by police after stabbing the boy.

Police said Sachs had been stalking potential victims for weeks. He was arrested moments after injuring the boy.

    It is a miracle that the boy didn’t die. Lucky break, psycho Evan. Only 14 years because 5 stabs wounds miraculously didn’t do the damage you intended. I will never, ever understand this. Amy Fisher got only 7 years because she too was “lucky” – Mary Jo didn’t die. Both of these people should have been put away for life.

    ………….I just got a $829.99 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use (Bidsget) . (com)

      Exactly Tek, but you forgot to mention, that if he was an illegal alien, obama would want him at the white house for a mexican dinner. Then schumer would most likely take care of any issues that arose, to make sure the illegal was there to have tacos with the ‘president’….another good photo op for the ass running this country to get the hispanic vote. GOD HELP THE USA !
