ALBION – A Holley resident pleaded guilty in Orleans County Court on Monday to first-degree sexual abuse.

David L. Durbano, 32, of Ridge Road admitted to sexual contact with a girl under age 11 in April.

The charge normally carries a maximum sentence of 2 to 7 years in state prison. As part of a plea deal, Durbano will face up to 5 years in prison when he is sentenced on Nov. 27.

He could also face 3 to 10 years of post-release supervision and will be a registered sex offender.

Durbano pleaded guilty to the highest charge in the indictment.

In other cases:

• Kenya L. Yawn, 22, of Rochester pleaded guilty to petit larceny for stealing about $2,000 from the Albion Walmart Supercenter on March 2. Yawn allegedly took a television, modem, Fitbits, hard drives and other items from the store.

District Attorney Joe Cardone asked Yawn who was in the vehicle with her to help with the crime.

“That’s for me to know and for you to find out,” she replied.

The terms of her plea did not include cooperating with the investigation, but Judge Sara Sheldon said she would take any assistance into account when sentencing Yawn.

Yawn faces a maximum of a year in jail when she is sentenced on Jan. 8.

• A 17-year-old girl from Rochester pleaded guilty to promoting prison contraband in the second degree. The girl, who could be given youthful offender status, allegedly tried to pass heroin and Alprazolam (also known as Xanax) to two inmates at the Albion Correctional Facility, a women’s prison, on March 26.

She could face up to a year in jail when she is sentenced on Dec. 18.
