Two sentenced in county court

NORWICH – A number of individuals appeared in county court Friday, one sentenced to one to three years in state prison on a charge of fourth degree grand larceny, while a second received ten years probation after pleading guilty to one count of first degree, felony sex abuse.



• Zachariah M. Burns, 28, Greene, charged with fourth degree grand larceny – a class E felony – was sentenced to an indeterminate sentence of one to three years in state prison.

“We have never seen a bigger plague of addiction in this area,” said District Attorney Joseph McBride, alluding to allegations that Burns committed the crime for which he was convicted to fuel a heroin addiction. “Even the crack epidemic was not to the scale of the current heroin epidemic. If anything, people will be safe while you are locked away and I hope you will be able to turn your life around.”
