ALBION – A Buffalo was sentenced to 1 to 3 years in state prison today by Orleans County Court Judge Sanford Church.

Dennis Bach, 36, pleaded guilty on Nov. 16 to to fourth-degree grand larceny. He admitted to taking about $11,000 worth of construction supplies from Pride Pak in Medina.

Judge Church ordered Bach to pay restitution to Pride Pak and also issued an order of protection for Bach to stay away from the company’s property on Maple Ridge Road.

Bach’s attorney Jeffrey Malaber asked the judge to sentence Bach to five years of probation so he could work and support his family. Malaber said this is Bach’s first felony conviction.

“He stands prepared to prove to the court that this isn’t who he is and won’t be who he is going forward,” Malaber told the judge.

Judge Church said he will recommend the option of shock camp in prison, which could be a sentence of about six months if the Department of Corrections accepts Bach into the program.
