Geneva teens charged with armed robbery reject plea deal

The Geneva teens accused of robbing a Hobart and William Smith Colleges student at gunpoint in September shot down plea deals that would have permitted them to admit guilt in exchange for 10 years behind bars.

Jemar M. McCall, 18, and a 16-year-old — not identified due to his age — allegedly committed the armed robbery while out of the Ontario County Jail on bail for a felony riot charge that stems from a June 6 disturbance in downtown Geneva.

As part of the plea deal crafted by the Ontario County District Attorney’s Office, in addition to prison time for an admission to first-degree robbery, a class B felony, the prosecutor’s office would agree to throw out the pending riot charge.
