Man convicted in fatal drag race crash pleads guilty to gun charge
A Farmingdale man sentenced to six months for a street race that killed five teenagers is headed to prison on an unrelated weapons charge.
Cory Gloe, 20, pleaded guilty to firing a shotgun in the air outside his home last month. The judge in the case revoked the six-month sentence he received in May for violating his probation.
Gloe was sentenced to up to four years in prison.
He had pleaded guilty on March 10 to participating in a 2014 street race in Farmingdale that ended in the crash that killed his friends, who were in a separate vehicle.
Inside the Mineola courtroom, the judge told Gloe that he showed a lack of judgment and disrespect to the memories of the victims.
"Cory's shown no remorse from day one," said Mark McGlone, the father of one of the victims. "We've been saying it, but now the court sees it."
Gloe's family had no comment for News 12 Long Island.
