Assemblyman Dov Hikind told VIN News, “Ever since a story broke this afternoon, our office has been inundated with calls. It is our understanding that a deal has been reached but things can change. Until this is officially announced, it’s premature to say that this matter is concluded.
“The Kletzky family has been through more than any of us can or should imagine. They want to bring this to a conclusion without the additional pain of a lengthy trail.
“I will be at the court next week to address the public and press on behalf of the Kletzky family, at their request. The family asks that their privacy is respected. They have been through quite enough.”
