CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. (AP) - A former suburban New York City police sergeant already serving time for stealing money from Hispanics during traffic stops has been sentenced to one to three years on additional charges.

Scott Greene pleaded guilty last month to felony grand larceny and misdemeanor petit larceny charges.

The 52-year-old Shirley man was sentenced on Thursday. That sentence will run concurrent to the one to three years he’s now serving.

The 25-year police veteran was convicted in January of separate larceny and official misconduct charges. That jury found him not guilty of more serious counts, including hate crime charges.

Prosecutors say the Suffolk County sergeant targeted drivers because of their ethnicity and grabbed $50 or $100 cash at a time from victims.
