The LeRoy man involved with stealing high-voltage copper wire from industrial plants in LeRoy was sentenced to three and a half to seven years in prison.

A trained electrician, 29-year-old Michael Nicometo was also ordered to pay over $86,000 in restitution at the rate of $250 per month.

His attorney told Judge Robert Noonan that Nicometo has a serious drug problem. He said Nicometo should get treatment prior starting a prison term, but Judge Noonan shot that down.

Nicometo pleaded guilty in September to third-degree burglary as a second felony offender. During sentencing today, he said he was sorry and acknowledged wrongdoing.

He missed two prior sentencing dates. The first was Jan. 2 when he was reportedly hospitalized in Rochester for an unknown reason. Last week he showed up late after an arrest warrant was issued.
