RIVERHEAD. N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – A Long Island man has been sentenced for driving his parents’ red Mercedes-Benz through a home in Huntington on Memorial Day and narrowly missing two elderly sisters.
The women, both in their 90s, were too frail to stay at the courthouse for the sentencing of Daniel Sajewski.
Prosecutors said the 24-year-old drank shots of Jack Daniels and beer before getting behind the wheel and slamming right through the sisters’ house, leaving them homeless for months.
“Lost belongings that they’ll never be able to replace. One sister only wanted her wedding band and she was unable to find it in the rubble,” Suffolk County prosecutor Nancy Clifford told WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall of the May 2012 incident.
