ALBION – Two teen-agers pleaded guilty to second-degree burglary and could be sentenced up to four years in prison.

Victor Odeychuk, 17, of Holley Byron Road in Holley and Louis Monacelli, 17, Monroe-Orleans Countyline Road in Brockport both admitted in court they broke into a garage on Nov. 22. The garage was attached to a house on Taylor Road in Clarendon. The two were arrested in March, along with Benjamin Odeychuk, 19. They are suspected in numerous break-ins in eastern Orleans County.

Orleans County Court Judge James Punch will consider youthful offender status for Monacelli and Victor Odeychuk. If they get a YO status, they would face a maximum sentence of 1 1/3 to 4 years in prison. If the judge rejects the YO status, the two can rescind their plea.

The judge could also decide to not give them any jail or prison time. The two will be sentenced on Oct. 6. He set bail for the two at $50,000 bond or $25,000 cash.

As part of the plea on Monday, Odeychuk and Monacelli both agreed to pay “any reasonable restitution for this and any other crimes known to the District Attorney’s Office.”


In other cases in county court:

Jesse Boldt, 38, of Medina pleaded guilty to criminal possession of controlled substance in the fifth degree. He admitted he possessed LSD with the intent to sell on Dec. 30, 2013.

“People call me, they come by and pick it up,” Boldt told Judge Punch.

Boldt, a resident of South Main Street, faces up to 2 years in state prison when he is sentenced on Oct. 6.


An Albion man pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree.

James Herring III, 24, of East State Street is accused of selling cocaine on May 22, 2013. He faces up to 2 ½ years in state prison when he is sentenced on Oct. 6.
