ALBION – An Albion man was sentenced to 4 years in state prison for second-degree rape.

Quintion K. Wilson, 21, was charged in December after he allegedly forcibly raped a girl less than 15 years old.

Judge Charles Zambito of Genesee County said Wilson “has a pattern of sexual contact with minors.”

The judge gave Wilson the maximum as part of a plea deal. Wilson also will be on post-release supervision for 10 years. Zambito issued an order of protection for the victim in the case until 2032.

Nathan Pace, Wilson’s attorney, asked for less than the maximum.

“He took responsibility immediately,” Pace said. “He’s remorseful.”

In other cases last Thursday in Orleans County Court:

• A Holley man was sentenced to 3 to 6 years in state prison for promoting prison contraband.

Joshua Grosskopf, 28, tried to bring drugs into the county jail.

Grosskopf apologized in court and said he regretted his actions will keep him away from his children.

“I was wrong,” he said. “It’s hard. I don’t want them to grow up without their father.”

Grosskopf, a second felony offender, has been making progress with sobriety, his attorney Michael O’Keefe told the judge.

• A former Albion resident was sentenced to three months in jail and five years probation for unlawful surveillance.

Jeremy Cooper, 41, now lives in Livingston County. He was arrested in October after placing a hidden camera in a couple’s bathroom. The couple also has children.

“I want to apologize,” Cooper said during sentencing. “I wasn’t in my right mind. I’ve done a lot to become clean and sober.”

Zambito said Cooper betrayed his friends’ trust with the crime.
“This is the kind of case where it’s hard to measure the amount of damage that is done,” he said. “These types of crimes go much deeper.”

Jade Fayko, 21, of Holley was sentenced to intermittent jail for six months for violating her probation. She was sentenced to three years of probation in December and was ordered to pay $100 a month in restitution until she pays $2,666 as part of a grand larceny crime.

Fayko has paid the full amount each month, was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, failed to notify probation of that charge, and went to Monroe County without probation’s permission. She will be in jail two days a week so she can work at her job.

Mark Hill, 59, was sentenced to four months of weekends in jail plus five years of probation for felony driving while intoxicated. He also needs to use an ignition interlock device that measures his Blood Alcohol Content when he drives in the future.
