GOSHEN – A 20-year-old Newburgh man was sentenced in Orange County Court on Friday to 15 years in state prison and five years of post-release supervision in connection with his guilty pleas to two counts of attempted murder, assault, and criminal possession of a weapon for two shooting incidents in the City of Newburgh.

At the time Danny Flores-Garcia pled guilty, he admitted that he shot three people on September 17, 2021 at about 2:40 a.m. in the vicinity of 69 Mill Street in Newburgh. He admitted he was trying to kill two of them who he seriously injured and caused physical injury to a third person he shot.

Flores-Garcia also admitted that on July 13, 2021, at about 11:15 a.m., in the vicinity of 88 Benkard Avenue in Newburgh, he possession a loaded and defaced Ruger pistol.

“The defendant’s conduct was incredibly violent and dangerous and he deserves the sentence that was imposed,” said District Attorney David Hoovler.
