The 16-year-old son of a Long Island Rail Road executive has been sentenced to three to nine years in prison for robbing and seriously injuring Mary Trump, the mother of Donald J. Trump, on a street near her Queens home. The sentence, which was imposed Friday on Paul LoCasto, prompted the youth's lawyer to charged that his client had received a harsher punishment than he would have if the victim had not been "high profile." [...] The slender high school student from Fresh Meadows, Queens, whose father is director of the railroad's alcohol-abuse program for employees, told the judge he was sorry.
