Default Neighbor keyed my car at NY apt, and was caught on video

I neighbor keyed my car at our NY apt, and was caught on video cam in front of the building. I was unloading groceries and she objected to the car being in the way of her exit.
She was charged but that has been 8 months ago now.
When will she finally be sentenced? Isn't eight months a little long?
She still has not paid me for the damage.

Default Re: Neighbor keyed my car at NY apt, and was caught on video

A damage claim and a criminal process are two separate issues. She is likely on deferred adjudication for the charge which means if she behaves until the probation period is up, they will drop the charge against her. That does not preclude you from suing her in small claims court for the damages. You should try to get confirmation she is on a deferred adjudication program to present to the court.

The prosecutor said I would receive something in the mail.
And restitution.

Well if you have been in touch with the prosecutor then you need to ask him your question.

To prosecute somebody for keying a car do you need actual video?
Or can testimony of a claimed witness suffice?

You need evidence sufficient to convince a small claims judge. A video and estimate for repairs is good evidence.

Yes a witness can also testify.
They need to be there in person to testify normally.
