On August 3, 2007, Judge Konviser ruled that Fox, Fortunato, and Shurov could be charged with hate crimes in Sandy's death. In her written statement, Judge Konsiver said that prosecutors only need to show that Sandy was chosen because of his sexual orientation, under the state's Hate Crimes Act of 2000.
On February 27, 2008 openly gay singer-songwriter and community activist Anye Elite released Just In Case a tribute to Sandy and other gay violence victims.
Sandy's death also brought back to public attention the death of Michael Griffith, an African American man who was killed after being hit by a car in Howard Beach, Queens, New York, while trying to escape a group of attackers.
The story of Michael Sandy's death, will be told from the perspective of screenwriter and dissident Fortunato jury foreman Eric Zaccar, in the upcoming independent feature film, Without Hate. The movie, that is being produced by Design Catcher Productions and Dolger Films, and directed by multi-award winning television and film director, Sylvia Caminer, is slated to be released in the Winter of 2013.
