Four sentenced, one pleads not guilty in county court

NORWICH – Five people charged with a variety of misdemeanor and felony crimes appeared in county court Monday, four of whom were sentenced while a fifth pleaded not guilty to one count of felony driving while intoxicated.

• James C. Laird, 24, Edmeston, was sentenced to one to three years in state prison and must pay $880 in restitution after pleading guilty to third degree burglary, a class D felony.

Chenango County Court Judge W. Howard Sullivan warned Laird that, as a “young man” with a “fairly significant record,” it’s up to him to make the necessary changes in his life if he wants to avoid future incarceration. Laird is currently facing additional charges out of Otsego County and any sentence handed down in relation to those charges will run concurrent to the one to three year state prison sentence.
