Yonkers man escapes more jail time in 1994 stabbing
A Yonkers man convicted in the fatal 1994 stabbing of a Mercy College student escaped a prolonged prison term at his sentencing today.
Anthony DiSimone pleaded guilty in September to fatally stabbing 21-year-old Louis Balancio outside the now-closed Strike Zone Bar in Yonkers. He was convicted of the attack in 1999, but was released from prison due to a technicality in the case after serving seven years.
Today, a judge sentenced DiSimone to three-and-a-half to 10 years in prison, and credited the seven years DiSimone already served toward that sentence, allowing him to walk away a free man.
DiSimone will remain on probation for the next three years.
