Kurt Paschke is seen on the video hitting the woman during a fight in the concourse after the Jets overtime victory.
According to a New York Post report, Paschke, now 38, was convicted of criminally negligent homicide for killing 17-year-old Bay Shore teen Henri Ferrer in 1992.
Paschke, who was also 17 at the time, was initially charged with murder, according to the Post.No arrests were made in the punching incident and Paschke's family members rallied to the 38-year-old's defense Monday.
"He’s the victim, really,” Colleen Paschke told the Daily News of her son, a Sachem High School graduate. “He was just concerned for his mother and himself.”
Kurt Paschke father, Kurt Paschke Sr., a retired Suffolk County cop, told Newsday that the woman, identified as Jaclyn Nugent of the Boston-area, had been verbally abusive to his son and his friends during the game.
Kurt Paschke Sr. said the woman "jumped" a couple who were at the game with his son as they were making their way out of the stadium, according to Newsday. That's when he says his son stepped in to protect his friends and his mother, who was nearby.
"This girl was charging him and punching him. She's no lady," Kurt Paschke Sr. told Newsday. "She was the aggressor. If she's gonna start a fight, what is my son gonna do?"
