NORWICH – A Guilford man pleaded guilty to grand larceny after spending over $8,000 with a stolen credit card. He was sentenced to 90 days in jail and agreed to pay the money back.

Eric K. Wilcox, 34, of Guilford, pleaded guilty to fourth-degree grand larceny, a class E felony after he was told he would serve six months in jail with five years of probation as long as he paid $3,000 of his restitution at the time of sentencing.

Wilcox admitted that he worked with another person, who was also arrested in the case, to steal a credit card, and then spent over $8,541.86 from May 15 through May 29.

After making a $3,010 payment on Monday, Wilcox was instead sentenced by Chenango County Court Judge Frank Revoir Jr., to time served in jail with five years of probation.

According to Chenango County First Assistant District Attorney Michael Ferrarese, the decision to reduce Wilcox's jail time was made by court and even though a plea was agreed on by both attorneys, sentencing is ultimately decided by the court.
