More than three years after he was sentenced for shooting and paralyzing his neighbor, Joey Castro will soon be headed to prison.

Castro was convicted back in 2018 and was sentenced up to 46 years in prison. However, an appeal has kept him free on bail.

His attorney argued the county judge should have allowed him to pursue a psychiatric defense. An Appellate Division judge struck down that argument.

The court overturned his conviction on a misdemeanor charge of failure to register an assault rifle.

Castro will surrender to the court on Tuesday.
