He was set to begin a six-month jail sentence.
The identity of a man who killed himself by walking in front of a moving tractor trailer has been revealed as 25-year-old ___ III, a convicted level 2 sex offender.
The incident happened back on November 29th, when ___ of Clay, New York exited his vehicle and jumped in front of a semi truck on an Interstate 90 off-ramp in Salina, New York.
Back in 2015, ___ was arrested for possession of child pornography when investigators discovered more than 2,000 illegal images on his computer and phone.
___ initially turned down a plea bargain for 1-3 years in prison. He was later found guilty of 82 counts of child pornography possession and one count of child pornography promotion.
Ex-prosecutor Jeffrey Schiano, who now works for a private firm, had sought a five to fifteen-year sentence for the level 2 sex offender. The judge in the case, however, only gave him six months prison time and ten years probation in what was declared an official ‘second chance’ judgment by the court.
On December 7th 2016, Schiano confirmed to several media sources that ___ was the man who died in the I-90 suicide-by-truck incident — just days before he was set to report to prison.
State police did not release any further information due to the family’s request for privacy. ..Source.. by Steve Wilcox
