Former local caught 12 years later


A man who was captured after a 12-year manhunt, will spend the next 12-years behind bars for a 2001 hit and run accident that killed a woman in Westbury.

Nassau County D.A. Kathleen Rice announced that former Hicksville local Sebastian Barba “showed callous disregard for life and law when he committed this horrific crime and then evaded prosecution for over a decade.  But justice caught up in the end with his being sentenced to as much time in prison as he spent evading responsibility for his elderly victim’s death.”
