NORWICH – A defendant who was shot in the leg while committing an alleged burglary refused a plea deal in Chenango County Court Monday, saying he suffered post traumatic stress from the incident, as the case now moves closer to trial.
Refusing an offer by Assistant District Attorney Michael Ferrarese, Kevin M. Roof, refused to plead guilty to burglary in the second degree, with a plea-offer that would have him serving 10 years in state prison with 5 years post-release supervision. Ferrarese said the case was now moving forward and Roof could face up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
