ALBION – A Medina man was sentenced to 3 ½ years in state prison today by Orleans County Court Judge Sanford Church.

Brennen D. Callara, 24, was sentenced for first-degree attempted robbery and petty larceny. He faced a maximum of 4 years in prison as part of a plea agreement. The judge gave him less than the maximum.

Callara admitted in a previous court appearance that he threatened a cashier at Crosby’s in Medina on July 20 by displaying a knife and demanding money. Callara also admitted to stealing a chain saw sharpener from Tractor Supply in Medina on Aug. 30.

The sentencing also satisfies other charges he faced in Shelby and Ridgeway courts.

In another case, Brandon Belski, 27, of Holley pleaded guilty to first-degree reckless endangerment, a class D felony.

He admitted in court today that on April 1 he pointed a shotgun at someone in a car and discharged the gun, hitting tires on the passenger side of the vehicle.

As part of a plea, he will face up to 9 months in the county jail when he is sentenced on March 29.
