Roxen Road Case Adjourned Until 2013

New court date set for Jan. 2, 2013.

The three defendants in the Roxen Road gang assault case won't see a court room again until 2013.

Friday's court date resulted in another adjournment for the three Rockville Centre teens who allegedly assaulted a resident on Roxen Road back in June. The new court date is set for Jan. 2, 2013.

William Moore, Matthew Diperna and Kevin Coyle have all been charged with second-degree gang assault — a C felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

Prior to Friday, the case had already been adjourned multiple times for each defendant.

According to police, the assault happened when the wife of the victim was walking her dog on Nottingham Road and was verbally accosted by five to eight young men. She ran home and told her husband of the incident, and the two drove around the neighborhood looking for the men to demand an apology.

This is step one toward an acquittal. These young men will not see one minute of Jail time. They were allowed to attend their high school graduation, go to the prom, while the victim was recovering from his assault. Rockville Centre has it’s good points. Top 100 High School, great restaurants, and a somewhat diverse religious and ethnic community. Having said all that, the unreported crime and alcohol rate among the teenagers in the town is a huge problem. My kids attend summer camp with some kids that attend Southside and these kids tell stories about their classmates drinking incessantly. I grew up in this town and I saw my share of violence and discrimination. Today rt seems that its worse. Sent these punks where they belong, behind bars. Or at least deport them to Shirley in Suffolk County.

This case is out of control In NYC this would be laughed at I think community service and no criminal record for the boys is appropriate Give them a break. They are not predators with knives and guns Yes they deserve punishment but no police criminal records that will ruin their future employment and self worth If they lived in Mill Ct. nothing would be said about this Gimmee a break

If they lived on Mill Court, perhaps nothing would be said, but those kids would sure as hell be in jail!

what street they live on in rvc has nothing to do with it you ignorant ass! instead of apologizing to a woman they said digusting things to, they chose to be rvc drunk tough guys and beat up the woman's husband, clearly a nice gesture. wake up and make kids who are set to start college accountable. this crap has to stop.

Ok...is anyone surprised?????

The bottom line is they've entered the system and it will run it's cost. Besides expensive legal fee's there's a good possibility they will go to jail. In addition, they've shamed themselves and their families. A hard lesson indeed.

I have attorney friends and they tell me that these kids won't even see community service. Not a single minute. The victim should file a law suit against each of those families for everything they have including their presious house in RVC and $ell it. This town is going down. Remember Roosevelt was a great town too not so long ago. Howard Stern used to live there until he and his family fled to RVC. Now Stern talks about how much antisemitism is in RVC. I'm not surprised. Did anyone check if this act could be considered a hate crime? Violence is never the answer. In hindsight the victim should have called the police and let RVC's finest take care of this.
