Manhattan judge Thomas Farber sentenced Peter Braunstein to 20 years to life this afternoon, less than the 25 years to life requested by the prosecution.

“Any sentence I pronounce on this profoundly disturbed man may result in his dying in jail. But the acts that he committed were intentional acts,” Farber said.
