Shortly after Hornick's arrest, the doctor filed a criminal complaint against Wilson alleging she made a series of harassing phone calls to his home. Wilson subsequently died before Hornick ever went to trial. After extensive negotiations between the two sides, prosecutors revamped their indictment against the doctor and reduced the original three felonies to a string of seven misdemeanors. Then, on the eve of his case going to trial, Hornick dismissed his original attorney Kent Sprotberry and sought other counsel.
Sentencing for Hornick is slated for Tuesday, Feb. 12, after submission of a pre-sentencing report by the Schenectady County Probation Department. He could reportedly face up to two years in jail and a $7,000 fine. Shettino said prosecutors have not yet decided what they will recommend to the court.
"This case was never about her (Roseann Wilson), it was always about the process and actions of David Hornick as indicated by his own testimony and the evidence," Schettino said. ""
