2 plead guilty after robbery at Medina park
ALBION – Two Lockport men pleaded guilty in Orleans County Court after a robbery at State Street Park on March 8.
Deandre Reed, 20, allegedly displayed a weapon in taking money and a cell phone from two strangers at the park. The weapon turned out to be a toy gun.
Reed appeared in court last Thursday and pleaded guilty to attempted robbery in the first degree and could face up to five years in state prison when he is sentenced on Oct. 25.
A codefendant, Robert Holmes, pleaded guilty to petit larceny and could face up to a year in jail when he is sentenced on Oct. 25.
In another case, Gerardo Quiros pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors after he allegedly barged into a home on Root Road in Barre and tried to drag his girlfriend out of the house by her feet. He was stopped by her brother, who made Quiros leave at gunpoint.
Quiros during an appearance on Aug. 7 pleaded guilty to criminal trespass in the second degree and attempted unlawful imprisonment in the first degree. He will be sentenced on Sept. 17. Any incarceration will be served with a sentence for a more serious crime.
Quiros in July was found guilty of sexual assault and rape charges. He allegedly held a woman against her will for several weeks, while physically and sexually assaulting her. He was convicted by a jury and will be sentenced at 2 p.m. on Sept. 17.
