Probation for Man Who Stabbed Estranged Wife's Lover

Belleville resident receives five years probation, community service for Parsippany incident.

A Belleville man charged with attempted murder for stabbing his wife's boyfriend 14 times in a Parsippany-based crime of passion won't be going to prison.

On Friday State Superior Court Judge Stuart Minkowitz sentenced Angelo Corino, 61, to five years probation, 640 hours of community service, anger management therapy and paying $13,973 for the victim's out-of-pocket medical expenses, the Daily Record reported.

The sentence was the state living up to its end of the plea deal struck with Corino in June.

That outcome is a bit different than what was expected.

According to the Morris County Prosecutor's Office, Corino pled guilty to one count of third-degree aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and in exchange would serve 364 days in the Morris County Correctional Facility, complete an anger management course and pay for the victim's  out-of-pocket medical expenses.

The defense used the "crime of passion" argument, saying that Corino experienced an overwhelming rage after catching the victim in the act of having sex with Corino's wife of 37 years in a Lake Hiawatha apartment, the Daily Record reported.

So this guy is going to be wandering the streets, free as a bird (except for the hour a week when he meets with his parole officer) ???
