A Bay Shore man convicted after a five-week jury trial of assaulting his ex-girlfriend and pushing her out of his car onto the shoulder of the Southern State Parkway, is scheduled for sentencing Thursday, the Suffolk district attorney said.
Antoine Smiley, 39, was found guilty of assault, attempted assault, aggravated criminal contempt, robbery and other charges.
Prosecutors are asking State Supreme Court Justice William Condon for the maximum sentence of 20 years in state prison, according to a Wednesday news release from Suffolk District Attorney Thomas Spota.
On April 27, 2015, several motorists on the parkway called 911 after seeing a man beating a woman, officials said. After noticing the other drivers had gotten out of their vehicles, the man ran away, leaving behind a Dodge Aspen, according to officials.
The state troopers who responded found the injured woman by the side of the road near Exit 37 in Babylon.
Smiley, who was out on parole at the time, was captured two days later by the U.S. Marshal’s Regional Fugitive Task Force with assistance from the New York State Police Violent Felony Squad.
