District Attorney Hoovler Announces State Prison Sentence  

In Town of Newburgh Stabbing Case


Newburgh Man Sentenced to Nine Years in State Prison for Stabbing Woman


Orange County District Attorney David M. Hoovler announced that Wednesday, March 16, 2022, Miles Peterson, 26, of Newburgh was sentenced in Orange County Court to nine years in prison and five years of post-release supervision in connection with the stabbing of a woman on Travis Lane, in the Town of Newburgh, on June 21, 2021.  On Tuesday, December 15, 2021, Peterson pleaded guilty to Assault in the First Degree.  

At the time that he pleaded guilty, Peterson admitted to stabbing the woman on Travis Lane multiple times, causing the victim to suffer serious physical injuries.  

District Attorney Hoovler thanked the Town of Newburgh Police Department.

“I hope that the state prison sentence that this defendant received serves as a deterrent for those tempted to engage in violence in Orange County,” said District Attorney David M. Hoovler. “The community will be safer during the nine years this defendant is in state prison.” 

The case was prosecuted by Executive Assistant District Attorney Michael Milza. 

This criminal charge is merely an allegation that a defendant has committed a violation of the criminal law, and it is not evidence of guilt. All defendants are presumed innocent and entitled to a fair trial, during which it will be the State of New York’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
