Plea deal for drunk driver who crashed boat and killed a soon-to-be wed man
A plea deal had Richard Aquilone pleading to lesser charges and getting just a probation for the death of Jijo Puthuvamkunnath.
Puthuvamkunnath was to be married in a few weeks but he never got to tie the knot as he got killed when a drunk Aquilone rammed his boat with his yacht.
The impact was so great that Puthuvamkunnath's boat was split in two.
Aside from the probation, Aquilone will also be made to serve the community for 250 hours.
Marc Agnifilo, New York criminal attorney defending for Aquilone, said his client has expressed regret for the loss that he has caused the Puthuvamkunnaths.

Murder charge dismissed in shooting death of man from Trussville
The murder charge filed against Freddie Earl Patton,53, for the shooting death of his girlfriend's father, Kenneth Millar, 81, has been dismissed upon the request of the Deputy District Attorney.
An order for Patton's release from jail has been signed, however, he may not be off the hook yet as the DA's office has stated that the case will be turned over to the grand jury in Jefferson County.
The prosecution moved for the dismissal after arguing with the defense who wanted to further question the detective about the autopsy report.
Birmingham criminal attorney John Lentine said that a manslaughter charge should have been filed instead of murder because the shooting was an accident.
If Patton gets indicted, he will have to go back to jail.
16-year-old charged with hate crime, will be tried as an adult
Richard Thomas may only be 16 years old but he will be facing the charges filed against him as an adult.
Thomas is facing several charges including "hate crime" after he set another teenager, Luke "Sasha" Fleischman, 18, on fire.
Both were riding on a bus when the incident happened with Fleischman wearing a skirt.
Fleischman's parents said their son does not identify himself either as a male or female.
According to police, Thomas had told them he set Fleischman on fire because he is homophobic.
San Francisco defense attorney Michael Cardoza said his client, Thomas, if convicted would be facing a longer sentence because of the hate crime charge.
