Man who left victim paralyzed in Genesee Street shooting sentenced

An armed robber whose shooting victim was left a quadriplegic has been sentenced to 25 years to life in prison, according to the Erie County District Attorney's Office on Tuesday.

Theodore Wilson, 27, had been charged with three counts of robbery, first-degree assault and criminal possession of a weapon in connection with an incident on Jan. 5, 2016, at 1733 Genesee St., in which he robbed and shot 29-year-old Quinton Rosenthal of Buffalo who was left paralyzed, according to the District Attorney's Office.

One day later and two blocks away from that shooting, Wilson robbed another man of his car, cellphone and money, officials said.

Wilson was convicted last month on the charges, following a non-jury trial before Erie County Court Judge Thomas P. Franczyk, according to officials.
