FAR ROCKAWAY — A Far Rockaway man who pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the fatal July 2010 assault of a Good Samaritan who attempted to halt an attack on a transsexual woman has been sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the Queens district attorney.
The defendant, identified by the district attorney as Daryl Reid, 24, was assaulting an unidentified transsexual woman in Far Rockaway when Richard Salter, 49, tried to intervene.
