ALBION – Ashley Sizemore, the former girlfriend of an ex-mobster, was sentenced to an additional 2 to 4 years in state prison today. She already is serving a sentence for arson.

Sizemore, 32, was the girlfriend of Thomas Torpey. He admitted to trying to smuggle drugs to her while she was at the Albion Correctional Facility, serving a 52-month sentence for an arson in February 2014 at the Spencerport residence of a former Irondequoit police officer.

Torpey, 69, of Rochester was arrested on Aug. 23, 2015 by State Police. He admitted to bringing drugs to the women’s prison for Sizemore. Torpey was sentenced in Orleans County Court to 1 ½ to 3 years in prison on Aug. 29. Torpey was released in 2008 after spending 23 years in prison for second-degree murder.

Sizemore pleaded guilty to both promoting prison contraband (1 ½ to 3 years in prison) and felony assault on a corrections officer (2 to 4 years in prison).

Those sentences will be concurrent, but will be tacked on to her sentence after she finishes her term for the arson. Sizemore was charged with assault on a corrections officer when she was taken for a medical appointment and allegedly pushed a corrections officer, causing a hand injury.
