Former Erie County deputy gets 2 to 6 years for DWI crash


Tonawanda News — Haug then spoke directly to Colosimo.

”Daniel, I know that anything I say right now won’t take the pain away you and your family suffered,” Haug said. “I will continue to pray and hope that you make a full recovery.” 

But Colosimo told reporters after the sentencing that he didn’t buy Haug’s apology. 

”It didn’t mean anything,” he said. “I don’t believe him.”

When asked if he could come to forgive Haug in due time, as the judge suggested during his comments, Colosimo quickly replied no. 

Haug, who was taken away in handcuffs following the court appearance, has 30 days to appeal the sentence. Melber declined to comment on whether he will appeal.
