He spent the other two years as an applications engineer at Hoffman Air & Filtration Systems in East Syracuse, New York. Finally, upon graduation, he received an offer to service nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers at the Westinghouse Electric Company.

And in 2001, he transferred to Syracuse University as the team’s offensive graduate assistant, a position he held for three seasons.

It is a crime carrying a maximum penalty of up to life imprisonment. The trial began in January 1997, but prosecutors were granted their motion to have the case dismissed after the victim “was unable to withstand the pressure or stress of a trial.”
