Monticello Man Convicted in Liberty Drive-by Shooting Sentenced to 30 years in prison

Farrell praised the work of Assistant D.A. Rob Zangla and the Village of Liberty Police, saying, “We have been very successful in Liberty at solving these crimes and making sure those responsible are held accountable, and that is due to the good work of the Liberty Police and the detective division who worked tirelessly to put together a strong and compelling case.

Those individuals who think that this behavior will be ignored are sadly mistaken. Violence in our streets will not be tolerated. Threatening witnesses will not be tolerated and those who engage in this type of behavior will be held responsible and accountable. The sentence imposed here does just that. My office and the local police will do everything in our power and we will bring to bear all of our resources to protect those witnesses who bravely come forward and have made the conscious decision to stand up to violence in our community.”

Charges remain pending against the second man involved in the incident, Steven Bristow, aka “Dog Pound”, 23, of Brooklyn, N.Y.
