6 Months for Tossing Turkey

October 19, 2005|From Associated Press

NEW YORK — A teen who severely injured a woman by tossing a 20-pound turkey through her car windshield was sentenced to six months in jail after his victim requested a light sentence.

Ryan Cushing, 19, also received five years of probation Monday and was ordered to undergo psychiatric treatment and do community service.

Victoria Ruvolo underwent surgery and spent a month in the hospital after the incident in November. She said she requested a light sentence because she wanted to give Cushing a second chance. He pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree assault.
