Oddone sentencing moved to April

Mar 24, 2010 11:30 AM

Anthony Oddone’s sentencing on first degree manslaughter charges has been postponed again at the request of the defense. According to Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota’s office, the sentencing will be postponed another two weeks, until April 14.

It is the second time the sentencing, originally scheduled for February, has bene postponed at the request of Mr. Oddone’s attorney, Sarita Kedia.

Mr. Oddone was convicted on December 14 of first degree manslaughter for the 2008 killing of Andrew Reister, an off-duty correction officer from Hampton Bays, in a bar fight in Southampton Village.

Mr. Oddone, 27, a Farmingville college student who worked as a caddy at a Noyac golf course, faces up to 25 years in prison. He will be sentenced by Suffolk County Court Judge C. Randall Hinrichs, who presided over his trial last fall.

Mr. Reister, who was 40 at the time of his death, was working part time as a bouncer at the Southampton Publick House, where he clashed with Mr. Oddone on August 9, 2008 after ordering Mr. Oddone to stop dancing on a table in the bar. The two engagned in a struggle during which Mr. Oddone choked Mr. Reister from behind until he was unconscious. Mr. Reister could not be revived and died two days later at Stony Brook University Hospital.

Manslaughter in the first degree carries a minimum sentence of seven years and a maximum of 25 years. The judge may select any single number between the two as the sentence. The convicted must serve at least 85 percent of the sentence before he may be released for good behavior.

Ms. Kedia has not filed an appeal of Mr. Oddone’s conviction yet, something she maintained she would be doing on his behalf shortly after the guilty verdict was handed down in December.

God bless Stacy and her family. I hope they are on their way to healing. God Bless Tony. 15 to 20 years cannot begin to bring back Mr. Reister but hopefully he intends to live the rest of his life trying to make ammends for the horrific act I did not think he was capable of committing.
