Man Sentenced in N.Y. Hate Attack

Man Sentenced in N.Y. Hate Attack


Daniel Aleman was sentenced to eight years in prison Monday for the antigay attack in Queens, N.Y., that left Jack Price hospitalized for three weeks last year.

The New York Daily News reports that Aleman, 27, argued unsuccessfully that he was drunk when he and another man attacked Price, 50, outside a deli.

"He was coming out of a College Point deli during the early morning hours of Oct. 8, 2009, when Aleman and accomplice Daniel Rodriguez attacked him shouting anti-gay slurs," reports the Daily News. "The two men punched, stomped and kicked Price before taking his wallet."

Rodriguez, 22, pleaded guilty to a hate crime and is awaiting sentencing.

Price expressed forgiveness for his attacker and said he believed Aleman "just got caught up in the stupidity," according to the Daily News.
