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

Jakob Bishop, 25, pleaded guilty to first-degree attempted burglary. He entered a home without permission and cut two people with a knife in a scuffle inside the house.

Bishop has a previous violent felony conviction. He was sentenced by the judge during court last week.
