ALBION – Two people today pleaded guilty in Orleans County Court to committing crimes at Orleans Correctional Facility, a medium-security prison.

Adeosun Hughes, 24, of Rochester admitted he tried to bring a ceramic razor blade into Orleans Correctional on April 15, 2023. He was there visiting.

He pleaded guilty to attempted promoting prison contraband and faces 1 to 3 years in state prison when he is sentenced on July 3.

Hughes is currently at Wyoming Correctional Facility for a 2-year sentence for attempted criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree.

Isaiah Yarborough, 26, from New York City admitted he threw urine at a corrections officer while Yarborough was incarcerated at Orleans Correctional on May 16, 2023.

Judge Sanford Church asked Yarborough if the urine was thrown at the CO with an intention to harass, annoy or alarm.

“Yes,” Yarborough responded.

He pleaded guilty to aggravated harassment of an employee by an inmate and faces a 1 ½ to 3-year maximum sentence on July 3.

Yarborough is now at the Wallkill Correctional Facility, serving an 8-year sentence for attempted robbery in the 1st, criminal possession of a weapon in the 2nd, and attempted robbery in the second degree.

Darrin Brown, 34, formerly of Orleans County and now of Lockport, was congratulated by the judge for completing a treatment program. Because Brown was successful in the program, a felony charge of fourth-degree grand larceny has been vacated. He instead faces a misdemeanor petit larceny charge and doesn’t have to go to jail.

“I want to formally congratulate you for completing the program,” Church told Brown. “Thank you for hanging on and actually doing it.”
