Burglar's sentence is two to six years

LITTLE VALLEY – An Olean man was ordered by Cattaraugus County Judge Larry Himelein on Wednesday to serve a combined prison term of two to six years on his burglary and attempted burglary convictions.

Brandon C. LaBorde, 26, was accused of break-ins in the Town of Olean on March 16 and the Town of Ishua on March 22, and his attempted burglary in the Town of Coldspring April 5.
In other County Court matters before Himelein:

*Obidah Ramadhan 26, of Olean, was sentenced to a two-year term and two years of post-release supervision on his conviction for the attempted sale of crack cocaine to an undercover agent in the City of Olean on Jan. 25.

District Attorney Lori Pettit Rieman said DeMarco was driving with a blood-alcohol level of 0.23 percent – nearly three times the legal limit – and his driver's license had been revoked following an earlier alcohol-related conviction.

DeMarco also was ordered by Himelein to serve another nine months in custody on his conviction on third-degree assault and child endangerment for a incident in the City of Olean last Dec. 17 involving a child less than 17, Rieman said.
