A Roosevelt man was sentenced Monday to 20 years to life in prison for acting as the getaway driver in the December 2010 shooting death of a teenager.
Bryan Henry had been convicted in August 2011 of second-degree murder, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of marijuana.
Nassau County prosecutors said the 22-year-old man drove a Hyundai Sonata as a getaway car for a masked gunman who shot and killed 19-year-old James McClenic of Roosevelt while the victim sat in a Mercedes-Benz SUV in Hempstead on Dec. 15, 2010.
The victim was killed by a single shot to the right side of the neck. Henry waited in the car a half a block away before the two fled, prosecutors said.
Henry was arrested eight days after the shooting. Investigators are still looking for the shooter.
