ALBION – Two Holley residents pleaded guilty in Orleans County Court on Thursday for their roles in the overdose death of a Clarendon man.

Logan DiPilato, 28, and Kelly Hagberg, 31, of Holley pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree. The case is being prosecuted by District Attorney Joe Cardone.

Hagberg admitted to providing fentanyl to DiPilato, who then sold four bags of it to a 35-year-old Clarendon man, which resulted in a fatal overdose on June 1. DiPilato admitted in court he knew the fentanyl was extremely dangerous.

As part of a plea deal, there are no sentencing promises. They could face up to 4 years in prison for criminally negligent homicide and up to 2 ½ years for criminal possession of a controlled substance. They will be sentenced on Dec. 19.

Both have no prior criminal convictions.

In other cases in court on Thursday:

Patrick W. Allen, 37, of Albion pleaded guilty to criminal mischief in the third degree, for intentionally causing $2,000 in damage to another person’s car on April 9.

Allen faces up to a year in jail when he is sentenced on Dec. 19.

Rhonda Rushton of Spencerport was sentenced to four months of weekends in jail and five years probation for felony driving while intoxicated. She registered a 0.19 BAC on June 15 in Albion. She has a prior DWI in 2012 in Rochester.

• A Medina man was assigned as a Level 2 sex offender. Jeffrey Woodroe, 39, previously admitted to sexual contact with a girl under age 12 on a least two occasions between April 2008 and April 2012. He was sentenced to six months in jail on Aug. 22, as well as 10 years of post-release supervision.

As a level two offender, he will be on the sex offender registry the rest of his life. A level 2 offender is considered a moderate risk of reoffending.
