Moravia man resentenced to prison for stealing nearly $5,000 in change

This summer, Corey Papusha was sentenced to shock probation for breaking into a building and stealing a large jug of change. But now, the 24-year-old is heading to prison for violating his probation roughly two months after he was sentenced.

Papusha, of 10 Grove St., pleaded guilty to third-degree burglary in May. At the time, he admitted to burglarizing a building on Rockefeller Road. Cayuga County District Attorney Jon Budelmann said Papusha and multiple co-defendants stole a water-cooler-sized jug of change last fall. It was worth nearly $5,000.

On Thursday, Papusha reappeared in Cayuga County Court before Judge Thomas Leone and admitting to violating the terms and conditions of probation. Specifically, he said he had been arrested for drunk driving in Moravia; he pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated there last month.
