Hoboken bar owner in deadly DUI

What ever happened to the Gaslight DUI death?

Hoboken411 reader Jenny emailed me earlier this week, and said: “Do you know what the outcome was with that deadly DWI accident the owner of the Gaslight was involved with a few years back? I stopped patronizing that place when I heard about it, and was wondering what the final verdict was.”

Did anyone else hear about what finally took place?

I guess 4 years isn’t bad for killing your best friend. Hey, Casey Anthony got the same sentence for “lying to the police”.

What does his age have to do with owning the gaslight? The guy isn’t a 9-5er like most of you on this board.
