RAMAPO, N.Y. -- A New Square man, convicted of trying to burn down a dissident's house, will be released from jail after being granted youthful offender status during a re-sentencing hearing on Tuesday, Oct. 27, according to lohud.com.

Shall Spitzer, who committed the crime when he was 18, was provided the "youthful offender" status by State Supreme Court Justice William Kelly, reported lohud.com.

The judge had said that he was against offering the lower status, but Spitzer's comments during court, changed Judge Kelly's mind, said lohud.com.

Aron Rottenberg, the victim of the crime, had asked the judge not to change the sentencing.

Spitzer had originally received a seven-year sentence for the April 2012 crime. An appeals court sent the case back, stating that the judge should have considered whether Spitzer deserved the "youthful offender" status, reported lohud.com.
