Queens Man Gets Max Sentence for Fatal Elmont Shooting

Local News, Crime, Press Releases

Defendant was found guilty on all counts by a jury in March.

Mineola, NY - June 2, 2014 - Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice announced that Wilfred Labossiere, 33, of Far Rockaway, received the maximum sentence of 25 years to life in prison – the prosecution’s recommendation – from Nassau County Court Judge Phillip Grella for a 2012 shooting in Elmont that left a young father dead and a grandmother seriously injured.
 
“While nothing can undo the pain and loss caused by Mr. Labossiere and his violent act, today’s sentence ensures that he’ll be paying for his crimes for the longest time allowed by the law,” DA Rice said. 
 
Labossiere was found guilty on all counts by a jury in March.  After deliberating for eight hours, a jury found Labossiere guilty of Murder in the 2nd Degree (an A felony), Assault in the 1st Degree (a B felony), and two counts of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the 2nd Degree (a C felony).
 
Labossiere was arrested on Nov. 26, 2012 in connection with the shooting in Elmont earlier that day that left a 29-year-old father dead of a gunshot wound and a 51-year-old grandmother seriously injured.
 
Assistant District Attorney Martin Meaney of DA Rice’s Major Offense Bureau is prosecuting the case. Labossiere is represented by Anthony Grandinetti, Esq.
