A California woman entered a guilty plea in county court yesterday for taking money from the Bank of America branch here in Batavia. 25-year-old Cassandra Montrevel admitted she used another woman’s identity to try and withdraw $3,000. However, she was not successful. This is one of several incidents with Bank of America nationwide involving Montrevell. She faces up to four years in jail here in New York and is also facing up to 5 years in federal prison. Those sentences will run concurrently.

n county court yesterday, 22-year-old Timothy Andrews eventually entered a guilty plea in connection with a break-in and an assault earlier this year. Andrews, from Bergen, entered an "Alford Plea" and could receive from 2 to 7 years in prison at his sentencing in March. An Alford plea means he didn’t admit guilt, but conceded he would likely be convicted at trial based on the evidence. Andrews was released under supervision.
Also yesterday, Timothy’s brother, Kevin Andrews received the same plea deal. The 19-year-old remains behind bars until sentencing.
A third man, 18 -year-old Christopher Preedom will be in court this morning. He is accused of stabbing the victim of the break-in in the eye. The victim is injured for life.

you people have no idea what happend that night i was involved yes, but that doesnt mean i did anything, the only reason im being charged with anything is because i was there, did anyone mabye stop to think that one of us went because there was a bad feeling or something? mabye to stop something if it happend? its funny how the media are supposed to relay top storys and they switch everything completely around. not one story online, on the radio, or in th epaper has been even close to correct. there was three of us there not a thousand with a story to say acting as if they were there too. you people may have good jobs but obvoiusly no lives.
