ALBION – Three people were arraigned on felony charges in Orleans County Court on Monday.

Darren Marker, 32, of Medina faces the most serious charges, including first-degree robbery.

He allegedly was in a vehicle on Main Street in Medina at 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 8 when he pulled out a knife and threatened the victim. Marker allegedly already owed the victim $110 after borrowing money with no intention of paying it back, the District Attorney’s Office said.

Marker also allegedly stole cellular phone power banks from Crosby’s.

He faces charges of second-degree menacing, criminal possession of a weapon, two counts of petit larceny, and criminal mischief in the fifth degree.

Marker has “an extremely extensive record” outside of New York, District Attorney Joe Cardone told Judge Sara Sheldon. He asked for high bail to be set for Marker, who has a wife in Rochester and grandparents in Medina.

Sheldon set bail at $100,000 cash and $200,000 property bond.

In other cases:

• Jocelyn Munn, 22, of South Lyndonville Road in Medina was arraigned for fourth-degree grand larceny after she allegedly stole jewelry worth more than $8,500.

She pleaded not guilty. The judge agreed to have Munn screened for a judicial diversion program. If Munn completes that program, the felony charge would be dismissed and she would instead be sentenced to a misdemeanor.

• Vanessa Trouerbach, 26, of Rochester was arraigned for third-degree burglary and petit larceny. The former Orleans County resident and a codefendant allegedly entered a garage on Monroe-Orleans Countyline Road on June 21 and stole tools.

The judge issued an order of protection for the victim and will have Trouerbach screened for the diversion program. Monroe County residents are usually ineligible for the program, but the judge agreed to have Trouerbach screened to see if she would be a good candidate for diversion.

• A Medina man has declined all plea offers and will go to trial beginning on Oct. 30 for first-degree assault, which could carry a maximum of 25 years in state prison.

Jessy Miller, 30, allegedly beat up another person and then left the scene without calling for an ambulance on Dec. 17 during a party at Ricky Place in Medina.

The victim was hospitalized and had to be put in a coma as part of his recovery, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
