Man charged with burglary rejects plea offer; opts for trial

NORWICH – A man charged with burglary in the third degree, a class D felony, rejected a plea offer made by the Chenango County District Attorney's Office when the Chenango County Court convened for a morning session on Monday, Aug. 15.

Anthony W. Irwin, 56, of Greene, appeared in court facing charges of burglary in the third degree, a class D felony; grand larceny in the fourth degree, a class E felony; and petit larceny, a class A misdemeanor.

It is alleged that Irwin stole $1,700 in cash register receipts from a local business.

The proposed disposition offered by the DA's Office on Mar. 23 stipulated that if Irwin entered a plea of guilty to the top charge of burglary in the third degree, he would be sentenced as a predicate felon and receive an indeterminate sentence of three to six years in the New York State Department of Corrections. Along with his sentence, Irwin would also be responsible for all restitution owed in the matter.
