Post-Sandy attacker pleads guilty to more crimes
A Hempstead man convicted in a string of violent home invasions after Superstorm Sandy has pleaded guilty to a whole different set of criminal charges.
As News 12 Long Island has reported, Artie Jackson was sentenced last month to 25 years to life in prison. He was convicted of breaking into an East Garden City home and then raping a woman and trying to strangle her.
Jackson pleaded guilty yesterday to carrying out two other violent home invasions and two burglaries in Hempstead and Garden City.
All the crimes happened in the days after Sandy.
