Spring Valley man gets long sentence for attempted murder of ex-girlfriend


NEW CITY – A Spring Valley man was sentenced in Rockland County Court to three consecutive terms in state prison on his June 6, 2017 conviction after a jury trial for the brutal attack on his former girlfriend and another man.

Jonathan McNeil, 23, was sentenced to a total of 37 years for two counts of attempted murder.

On July 10, 2016 at about 12:30 a.m., McNeil attacked his ex-girlfriend and a male friend as she was being dropped off at her Hillcrest home. While the victims sat in her driveway in a car, McNeil smashed the windshield with a baseball bat.  The man backed out of the driveway and drove off. A short time later, he returned and made another attempt to drop off the woman at her home.

As the woman stood outside with her mother, McNeil and another individual drove by firing several shots from a car.  The woman was struck in the leg. Multiple rounds struck the driver side of the vehicle where the male victim was sitting.
