New evidence delays sentencing in deadly Hempstead hit-and-run
The Hempstead man slated to be receive probation Wednesday after pleading guilty to second-degree manslaughter and driving while ability impaired had his sentencing delayed after new evidence came to light.
Back in January 2017, Christopher Ebron, 23, was arrested for running over and killing 58-year-old Ana Neuman as she tried to cross North Franklin Avenue in Hempstead.
The probation deal had been in the works, but the state Supreme Court judge warned that the deal may be tossed out after Instagram images of Ebron apparently smoking marijuana while behind the wheel surfaced. Those pictures appear to have been taken in June or July while he was awaiting sentencing.
Ebron's attorney says the images do not warrant throwing out the probation deal.
“Unfortunately, the district attorney has cherry picked his social media to disparage my clients family and his character,” said attorney Anthony Grandinette.
Representatives from Mothers Against Drunk Driving who were also in the courtroom wrote a letter asking Ebron to be sentenced to the maximum of 2 1/3 to 7 years in jail.
Sentencing for Ebron is now set for Oct. 18.
