As part of a plea deal, he is scheduled to be sentenced to six years' probation under sex-offender conditions when he returns to court Aug. 5, according to the Westchester County district attorney's office.

Prosecutors said Almonacy touched a woman during a road test in Yorktown on Sept. 3.

Almonacy has been suspended from the DMV without pay since September 2013, a department spokesman said Wednesday.

Any additional action by the DMV regarding Almonacy's employment status "is pending his sentencing," the spokesman said.
