Moravia teen sent to prison for three felonies in Cayuga County

A Moravia teen was sentenced to prison Thursday for committing three separate crimes in Cayuga County.

In May, 17-year-old Jahree Cathcart, pleaded guilty to three felonies: second-degree attempted burglary, third-degree robbery and second-degree unlawful surveillance.

At the time, Cathcart admitted his part in a crime spree late last year, beginning with a burglary in his hometown.

Cathcart said he committed his first crime in September 2016 when he acted as a lookout while his friends broke into a home in Moravia. Then, in October, Cathcart said he secretly filmed a young woman having sex and later threatened to broadcast the video to others. And finally, in December, Cathcart helped his friends commit an armed robbery at a residence in Genoa.
