More time added to Geneva man’s sentence

A Geneva man, caught up in his cohort’s attempted murder charges, had his deal tossed for violating the terms of his release while awaiting sentence.

On Wednesday in Ontario County Court, New York State Supreme Court Justice Craig Doran withdrew the deal of three and a half years for attempted criminal possession of a weapon and sentenced Timitheus Merritt to five years for criminal possession of a weapon for violating the terms of his furlough.

According to court testimony Merritt was being monitored by an electronic device and missed his court-mandated curfew on two occasions, which ultimately cost him an additional year and a half of his freedom.
