CENTRAL ISLIP — A Brooklyn man accused of driving drunk when his car plowed through a Long Island home has been sentenced to up to 3 years in prison.
Daniel Sajewski pleaded guilty last month to driving while intoxicated. He also admitted pressuring his girlfriend, Sophia Anderson, to take the blame for the crash.
He was sentenced Tuesday to 1 ½ to 3 years in prison.
Anderson was originally charged with DWI in the May 28 crash in Huntington. Prosecutors later said she wasn't the driver and dismissed those charges.
But Newsday reports that Sajewski's lawyer said Tuesday that Anderson actually was the driver. He said Sajewski wanted to take responsibility for her.
Anderson plans to plead guilty Thursday to noncriminal charges to resolve her case.
