ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- The Jamesville man accused of destroying swan eggs in the village of Manlius earlier this year will be sentenced today. Ross Leone, 23, pleaded guilty last month to smashing seven swan eggs in April. The eggs were about two weeks away from hatching at the time.
Last month, Leone pleaded guilty to fourth degree criminal mischief and interfering with wildlife.
The assistant district attorney says his sentence today will include some jail time, probation and possible fines. The person who had donated the eggs says they're estimated to be worth $5,000.
