2 others plead guilty and could be sentenced to prison

ALBION – An Oakfield man was sentenced to 2 1/3 to 7 years in state prison today for a burglary in Barre last year.

Jeremy Lyons of Pearl Street pleaded guilty to third-degree burglary. Lyons, 30, admitted he broke into a house on Eagle Harbor Road in Barre on Aug. 10, 2014.

He said in a previous court appearance he was retrieving items that belonged to him. He took those items and also stole copper piping, he told County Court Judge James Punch.

As part of the sentencing today, Lyons will be required to pay $500 in restitution to the victim of the crime, plus another $18,695.25 to New York Mutual, an insurance company. That is to be paid in three years.

In other cases in County Court today:

A Rochester man admitted he sold cocaine from his car in Holley on March 6, 2015.

Roy L. Carter, 39, made the sale to an undercover officer, Assistant District Attorney Susan Howard told Judge Punch.

Carter pleaded guilty to attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree. As part of a plea deal, he will face no more than 5 years in state prison when he is sentenced on Feb. 1.

An 18-year-old from Holley pleaded guilty to first-degree rape for having sex with his 10-year-old sister when he was 16. The man is eligible for youthful offender status, so Orleans Hub won’t list his name. If he is granted youthful offender, he also won’t be included on sex offender lists.

The man faces a maximum of 1 ½ to 4 years in state prison when he is sentenced on Nov. 30. He is in jail on $25,000 bail.
