Sounds like District Attorney must have had a pretty strong case. Either that or the perp had a lame lawyer. Or both.

I guess when u spend most of your life in and out of jail and prison and u still don't learn a lesson, maybe another prison stint will sink in...... I doubt it though. Just google this joker and see where he was involved in a state wide crime spree a few years ago.

This is a joke - there is a female from that area who stole $10,000 worth of goods from Plattsburgh Walmart and only got probation and some community service - not even weekends - she is a druggy and needs to go to jail - rehab won't help her - POS - that is for sure - can't even believe a word she says - all lies - and this is not her first felony - not even her second - low life white trash - she violates her probation all the time - nothing done - PUT HER AWAY- wake up probation office and do some better checking on these people.

Different people go to jail for different reasons. My daughter got messed up with the wrong guy, he beat, raped, stabbed, drugged and held her captive. I got him arrested one time. He served 11 months in the county jail. Just to do it all over again. Yes, I know my daughter should have gotten away, but unfortunately she went back. Anyway, he had prior arrests of domestics from prior girlfriends and wives. Even kidnapping. Oh, did I mention he has been arrested 5 times for making and selling meth? It was not in NY state, nor VT. But I have come to this assumption, he must have the Sheriffs Dept on his payroll or a big snitch. I have contacted their local news, trying my hardest to get this man behind bars. For life.

Wal-Mart larceny suspects arrested
By FELICIA KRIEG
Press-Republican
PLATTSBURGH — Police say two Plattsburgh residents stole at least $20,000 in merchandise from Wal-Mart.
John L. Letts, arrested late Wednesday night, told police he had been stealing from the store since December 2012, said New York State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation Lt. Brent Davison.
Loss Prevention employees at Wal-Mart originally believed about $8,000 in merchandise had been taken, but when Letts let police search his Sailly Avenue apartment, they found at least $20,000 in stolen goods, he said.
“His plans were to sell it,” he said.
The merchandise includes large flat-screen televisions, laptops, more than 15 cameras and camcorders, tripods, DVDs and kitchen appliances.
SURVEILLANCE VIDEO
Letts, 26, turned himself in to police after a person saw the surveillance photo of him on WPTZ Channel 5’s website, Davison said.
Earlier that day, State Police had asked the public for help in locating the two suspects, releasing two surveillance photos on their public website.
“I think this is a good example where we reached out to the media for assistance and asking the public for help and it paid off,” Davison said.
Some of the smaller items were taken out of the store covered with stolen towels, he said, but the larger items were not covered when they were transported out of one of the front entrances of Wal-Mart.
FELONY CHARGES
The most recent theft happened between midnight and 12:50 a.m. on Saturday, he said.
Letts was arraigned in Plattsburgh Town Court late Wednesday.
He was taken to Clinton County Jail in lieu of $2,000 cash or $4,000 bond and was scheduled to reappear at 4 p.m. today.
His alleged accomplice, Alison L. Sault-McDonagh, 25, of Plattsburgh, surrendered to police Thursday afternoon.
Her arraignment took place at 3 p.m. in Plattsburgh Town Court.
The Clinton County District Attorney’s Office recommended bail of $4,000 or $8,000 since Sault-McDonagh is on probation.
