Men Who Harassed Guard Plead Guilty

Two men that were involved in the assault of a 66-year-old Larchmont crossing guard pled guilty to lesser charges.

Two men that were charged in connection with the assault of an elderly Larchmont crossing guard on May 17, pled guilty to lesser charges in court on Sept. 10, according to Town of Mamaroneck records.

Anthony Vaccaro, 37, of 640 Pelham Rd. and Lucian Cappello, 32, of 16 Park Ave. in New Rochelle, approached the 66-year-old crossing guard as he was stationed on Murray and Colonial Avenues, near Murray Avenue School in Larchmont.  After a verbal altercation occurred, Cappello struck the guard in the chest, according to Town of Mamaroneck Police.

Vaccaro was originally charged with obstructing governmental administration and leaving the scene of an accident, both misdemeanors.  He pled guilty to second degree harassment, a violation, and paid a $375 fine (including a mandatory surcharge).

Cappello was originally charged with obstructing governmental administration and third-degree assault, both misdemeanors. He pled guilty to second degree harassment, a violation, and paid a $375 fine (including a mandatory surcharge).

The case was prosecuted by Michelle Bernstein, the assistant district attorney.

What,no community service as a crossing guard?

$375? That is about the price of a speeding ticket! Go 10 miles over the posted speed...beat up a senior citizen helping kids across the street...yep, seems about the same to me!

Let me get this straight. Two men verbally assault and physically attack and battery a government employee in broad daylight, and all they get is a monetary fine in an amount similar to a speeding ticket? Sounds to me like the fix was in. Can someone smell a crocked nose job here?
