MONTICELLO – A White Sulphur Springs man was sentenced in Sullivan County Court to 11 ½ years in state prison and five years of post-release supervision on his conviction on armed robbery and burglary, both as felonies.
James Letohic, 32, admitted to robbing another man by threatening him with a knife and taking $800 from him in June 2004 in the Town of Mamakating. The victim was not injured. Letohic also admitted to burglarizing an unoccupied residence on Red Hill Road in Mamakating on June 26, 2014 where he stole appliances and copper pipe.
He was arrested by State Police on October 30, 2014 following an investigation.
“The sentence handed down today on this robbery and burglary underscores my office’s continued commitment to holding individuals who engage in this type of behavior responsible and accountable for their actions with state prison sentences,” District Attorney James Farrell said. He credited the State Police with cracking the case.
Letohic was also ordered to pay restitution of $1,900. Orders of protection were issued for the victims.
