LIVINGSTON COUNTY – A young man was sentenced to time served and probation Tuesday morning after robbing $100 cash from his own grandma and leading police on a wild foot chase through the woods on April 27.
Trevin Kelley, 22, flew through the court process in one appearance, pleading guilty to the top count, Robbery in the Third Degree, and receiving a sentence of ‘time served’ and 5 years of probation, admitting to stealing the money from grandma’s purse while she was in the driver’s seat of her car at Apple/Qwik Fill in Mount Morris.
Unable to find marketplace offers.
“I opened the driver’s side door and took the money from her purse,” admitted Kelley. “I was blocking her so she couldn’t move.”
After the robbery, Livingston County Sheriff’s Deputies located Kelley in York in a vehicle driven by co-conspirator Cain Cox. Kelley fled from the vehicle after Deputy Christopher Brosius pulled them over, and had to be chased through the woods on foot by Deputies before he could be arrested. Mount Morris Police also arrested Kelley on more charges when Deputies brought him in.
Cox, 25, was also arrested in January when he was pulled over in Avon with his passenger, Anthony Valazquez, 27, who tried to throw 40 baggies of heroin into a nearby ditch.
Kelley’s plea was in satisfaction on all counts of Robbery in the Third Degree, Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree, Jostling, Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the Third Degree, Resisting Arrest, and Criminal Possession of a Hypodermic Instrument.
While he was incarcerated, Kelley was a Trusty at the Livingston County Jail. He was released after Tuesday’s court proceedings.
A non-offensive contact order of protection was also signed in favor of grandma, the victim.
Judge Robert Wiggins said that it took some convincing for him to go along with this sentence, and urged Kelley to take advantage of the break he is getting.
“I will tell you, I think you are getting a significant break here,” said Judge Robert Wiggins. “In life, you have to be smart. Take advantage of your breaks.”
