A jury found a man guilty of criminally negligent homicide in the death of Sgt. Jeremy VanNostrand, who died in the line of duty on Nov. 27, 2018 from injuries sustained in a multi-vehicle crash in front of the barracks in Montgomery County where he was stationed.
Sentencing is scheduled for July 9.
Sergeant VanNostrand, 36, was sworn into service with the New York State Police on Nov. 26, 2012. After graduating from the 199th Session of the State Police Academy, VanNostrand started his career in Troop F, working at SP Liberty. He later transferred to Troop G and worked at SP Granville and then SP Fonda.
VanNostrand loved his job as a member of the New York State Police and was described as enthusiastic, hard-working, dependable and dedicated to serving and protecting the public. He had taken the sergeant’s promotional exam, scored well and was fourth on the list. Following VanNostrand’s death, then-Superintendent George P. Beach II praised VanNostrand’s work ethic and drive and posthumously promoted him to the rank of sergeant.
