A Hastings-on-Hudson man has been sentenced to one year behind bars for a deadly hit-and-run crash. Johnny Machado admitted to hitting 91-year-old Rocco DePaolo. DePaolo was struck and killed in 2019 while walking home from a high school football game on Route 9 in Dobbs Ferry .
An Orange County man will spend five years in prison for threatening to shoot up Washingtonville High School in 2018.
