John White, 56, was convicted of manslaughter following an altercation back on August 9, 2006. The situation unfolded when White’s son came home and warned his father that Daniel Cicciaro Jr., 17, and company was coming to their Miller Place home (on the North Shore of Long Island) to attack him for an earlier feud between the two (some sources claimed that a female was involved). When Cicciro Jr. showed up to their driveway, he began yelling racial slurs and allegedly threatened to rape White’s wife, among several other direct threats. When White confronted Cicciaro Jr. with a gun in his hand, the 17 year old allegedly lunged for the weapon, which caused White to react and pull the trigger. Cicciaro Jr. was shot in the face and died shortly afterward.
