Geneva teens reject 10-year prison sentence for armed robbery

The Geneva teens accused of robbing a Hobart and William Smith Colleges student at gunpoint in August while out of jail on bail for a riot charge have again turned down a plea deal that would have them spend 10 years in prison. With the deal now off the table, Jemar M. McCall, 19, and his 16-year-old accomplice, not identified due to his age, face up to 25 years behind bars if a jury convicts the pair of first-degree robbery, a class B felony, at a trial that is scheduled to take place in late February.

The decision to reject the deal offered by the Ontario County District Attorney’s Office came during a brief appearance before Judge William Kocher in Ontario County Court on Thursday morning. The two teenagers appeared jointly with their attorneys, Robert Turner and Gerald Forcier.
