DA Vance announced the guilty plea of Juan Scott for three separate sexual assaults in the East Village in 2014.

He is expected to be sentenced on September 6, 2016.

Former real estate attorney Luigi Rosabianca will spend four to 12 years in prison for grand larceny under a plea deal signed Monday. Manhattan prosecutors had accused him of stealing more than $4.5 million from escrow and estate accounts he managed on behalf of clients. Under the deal, Rosabianca will also have to repay his victims a combined $2.9 million.

The computer hacker who stole $50,000 from a nonprofit was sentenced Monday to up to six years in prison. Computer expert David Kupratis, 31, of Parlin, N.J. twice assumed another person's identity and then filched a laptop computer and cellphone from a third person in 2014, authorities said. He pleaded guilty on May 23 to identity theft and computer tampering charges.

“We applaud the Supreme Court’s decision confirming that domestic violence abusers convicted of a broad range of violent misdemeanors can be barred from owning weapons. Guns and domestic violence are a lethal combination. When an abusive partner is permitted access to firearms, the risk that the other partner – usually a woman – will be killed increases more than five-fold. Earlier this year, Prosecutors Against Gun Violence and the Consortium for Risk-Based Firearms Policy issued a blueprint for jurisdictions throughout the nation seeking guidance on how to prevent domestic abusers from having guns. Today’s decision will help save countless lives.”

DA Vance announced the sentencing of Luigi Rosabianca, a former real estate attorney, to 4-to-12 years in state prison for stealing more than $4.5 million from seven of his clients. On June 3, 2016, Rosabianca pleaded guilty in New York State Supreme Court to all of the charges against him: one count of Grand Larceny in the First Degree, and six counts of Grand Larceny in the Second Degree. As part of the plea, the court executed judgment orders in favor of the victims, holding Rosabianca liable to repay more than $2.93 million.
