Amazing Property in Lakeville! 5707 Big Tree Rd
LIVINGSTON COUNTY – The attorney for one of the three ‘Mac Salad Bandits’ was already anticipating sentence possibilities as her client waived his right to Grand Jury review of his case and proceeded with arraignment by Superior Court Information.
Timothy Walker Jr., 23, of Idaho, was arraigned on Burglary in the Third Degree, Criminal Mischief in the Third Degree, and Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree charges Tuesday morning for the alleged forceful entry and theft at Build-A-Burger in Mount Morris on the eve of Mother’s Day.
“It is our hope that the court and the District Attorney’s Office will consider a Willard Sentence in this case,” said Walker’s attorney, Lindsay Quintalone.
Willard Correctional Facility is a Drug Treatment Campus with the NYS Department of Corrections.
District Attorney Josh Tonra extended an offer of 1 to 3 years in state prison, with eligibility for Shock camp, a military-style boot camp for prisoners that, if completed, can drastically reduce time in prison.
Walker is currently held at the Livingston County Jail on $7,500 cash or $15,000 bond.
Walker was arrested with Matthew Sapetko, 34, of Mount Morris and James Marullo, 35, of Mount Morris, after police followed a trail of mac salad from Build-A-Burger to Marullo’s apartment.
Walker was also re-arrested in May for Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the Fifth Degree after police found that there were stolen tools in his truck from fire and scam victims Bob and Smidge Stevens at the time of the Build-A-Burger burglary investigation.
Sapetko was indicted by a Grand Jury in connection to the Build-A-Burger burglary and for Forgery in the Second Degree and Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree for allegedly passing a forged check at another Mount Morris Business in an earlier incident.
Marullo was re-arrested as part of the Drug Task Force ‘spring roundup’ in May for an alleged sale and possession of marijuana in an earlier incident. His wife Mariah White-Marullo, 22, was arrested in June for allegedly passing him tobbacco during visitation at the Livingston County Jail.
Marullo has already pled guilty to burglary charges and agreed to testify against Sapetko and Walker at Grand Jury.
