Long Island man gets 20 years in 2009 attempted robbery that led to fatal shooting


CENTRAL ISLIP, New York — A Long Island man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for masterminding an attempted robbery in 2009 that led to a fatal shooting.

John Moglia, of Sayville, was sentenced on Wednesday after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery in interference of interstate commerce.

Newsday (http://nwsdy.li/1fq7Z4Q ) says Moglia admitted planning the 2009 attempted robbery of a Bohemia home where Steven Privetera, an accused marijuana dealer, lived. The man's father was shot to death while intervening in the robbery. Prosecutors say the father wasn't involved in any drug dealing.

The 33-year-old Moglia orchestrated the robbery but wasn't present during the killing.

Before the sentencing, Moglia apologized for his actions saying he "hurt a lot of people."
