Sentenced To 19-Years In Prison

In February 2020, Addimando was sentenced to 19 years to life in prison.

Appealed Sentence

In April 2021, Hudson Valley Post reported that Addimando was appealing her sentence believing her constitutional rights were violated during her prosecution and trial.

In July 2021, a New York appeal court determined Addimando should have been sentenced under the Domestic Violence Survivors Justice Act.

The act was signed shortly after Addimando was sentenced. The bill was created to help victims of domestic violence.

It was ruled that Addimando should have been sentenced under the  Domestic Violence Survivors Justice Act.

A judge reduced her sentence to 7.5 years, with five years of parole.

"In a system where 90% of appeals are denied, and where even a favorable outcome was likely to land back in Judge McLoughlin’s court, this decision is good news," the We Stand With Nikki Facebook group stated. "The Court decided that Nikki should have been sentenced under the Domestic Violence Survivors Justice Act (DVSJA), validating her experience of severe abuse at the hands of her partner. They believed her. And the law finally worked as it was intended."
