MAN CHARGED IN HIT-MAN REVENGE PLOT (Girlfriend’s ex-husband was target in rape of daughter)

David Quinn, a 37 year old Rockville Centre man, tried to hire a hit man to sexually mutilate his girlfriend's former husband, who is in jail on charges that he raped his own daughter.  He arranged to pay $1,000 to have his girlfriend's former husband stabbed in the groin.  The hit man he hired was actually an undercover investigator.    The 60 year old former husband, whose name is being withheld because of the nature of the alleged crime against his daughter, has been in jail since September on rape, incest, sodomy and other charges.  He is accused of attacking his daughter, who is now 15, on four occasions between 1996 and 2002.  The girls father is being held on Rikers Island in lieu of $100,000 bail.  He also has a prior sexual abuse conviction. He is expected to plead guilty on January 13 in exchange for 10 years in jail.  If he is convicted at trial, he could have faced 25 years in prison.  Quinn was charged with conspiracy and faces up to 4 years in jail if convicted.  He is being held on $25,000 bail.
