ALBION – Three people will be spending time in either the county jail or state prison after being sentenced in Orleans County Court today.

Daniel P. Musson, 24, of Chili Avenue in Rochester received the longest sentence, 1 ½ to 3 years in state prison for grand larceny.

Musson allegedly took jewelry on Aug. 9, 2016 worth more than $3,000 and faced additional charges of first-degree unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree (for allegedly having more than 500 milligrams of cocaine), and criminal possession of stolen property (for allegedly having someone else’s credit card).

Musson was ordered to pay $3,775 in restitution for the stolen jewelry and Judge James Punch issued an order of protection for the victims in the crime.

Musson apologized to the victims and said he will focus on overcoming his drug addictions.

“You’ve been offered a lot of help in the past and it just hasn’t worked,” Punch told Musson.

• Frank Ranallo Jr., 46, of Chestnut Street in Medina was sentenced to six months in jail after he admitted in court on Jan. 9 to entering a house on Salt Words Road on June 24 without permission. Ranallo also allegedly took two guns.

District Attorney Joe Cardone said the guns have been recovered and restitution isn’t needed.

“I’m very sorry for my actions,” Ranallo told Judge Punch.

• A Niagara Falls man was sentenced to 60 days in jail and probation for criminal possession of stolen property in the fifth degree.

Kenneth O. Bess, 23, allegedly drove the vehicle for a burglary at an Albion home on Aug. 18, 2014.

Two people have pled guilty and one was found not guilty at a trial for the burglary. Bess had a smaller role in the crime, but Punch said Bess still needed to be punished.

Punch said the crime was “terrible” and destroyed the quality of the life for the victimized family and their neighborhood.
