N.Y. man gets 17.5 years in prison for hate crime beating



New York Man Who Violently Attacked Asian Woman Pleads Guilty to Hate Crime  - WSJ

 

 

 

A man from Yonkers, N.Y., convicted of punching a 67-year-old Asian woman more than 100 times was sentenced on Wednesday to more than 17 years in prison for the crime.

 

Tammel Esco, 42, received 17 1/2 years in state prison for the violent hate crime, as well as an additional five years of post-release supervision, the Westchester County District Attorney's Office said in a release.

 

Esco was arrested on March 11 and charged with attempted murder as a hate crime for beating the 67-year-old woman, who is of Filipino descent. Esco was still at the crime scene in Yonkers, N.Y., when police arrived.

 

The crime was captured on video surveillance.

 

According to an investigation, the victim walked by Esco on her way home and yelled a racial slur at her. The attack happened as she was attempting to enter the residential building on Riverdale Avenue in which they both lived.

 

Esco approached the victim from behind as she entered the vestibule and punched her in the head, knocking her to the ground.

 

Police later determined that she had been punched in the head and face more than 125 times, foot-stomped seven times and spit on.

 

The victim sustained facial bone fractures, brain bleeding and multiple contusions and lacerations to her head.

 

Esco pled guilty Sept. 27 to assault in the first degree as a hate crime.

 

"Today, we close a chapter on one of the most vicious and shocking hate crimes we've seen in Westchester County, District Attorney Miriam Rocah said in a statement.
