Anthony Nicosia Jr., of Oakfield, agreed to a plea deal in Genesee County Court today, admitting that he twice had sexual contact with a 16-year-old boy last spring in the Town of Oakfield.

The 55-year old Nicosia pleaded guilty to two felony counts of third-degree Criminal Sexual Act. Under terms of the deal, two counts of Forcible Touching and one count of Endangering the Welfare of a Child were dropped.

Nicosia has no prior felony convictions affecting this sentence. He faces up to eight years in prison on consecutive four-year sentences stemming from the charges, up to 10 years probation and must register as a sex offender.

An order of protection was logged for the 16-year-old victim. Nicosia remains imprisoned until his Nov. 23 sentencing. Bail is $15,000 cash or $30,000 bond.

UPDATE: I spoke with Judge Robert Noonan to get a definitive answer on the sex offender registration issue. Noonan says he almost always imposes fees -- like sex offender registry fees or DNA Databank fees -- at sentencing, in case the legal organizations that follow sentencing need to administer or re-administer those services.

For example, if a defendant has already contributed to the DNA Databank due to a prior conviction, that defendant will not need to go through the DNA Databank process again. The State Department of Corrections is later authorized to waive the DNA Databank fee imposed at sentencing.

So, Judge Noonan told Nicosia yesterday that he may impose the Sex Offender Registration fee at sentencing. Noonan says the fee may be required to reclassify sex offenders to a higher level. However (upon closer examination), Nicosia is a Level 3 Sex Offender, the highest level possible. Therefore, he cannot be reclassified to any higher level. So, even if the judge imposes the registration fee at sentencing, it would likely be waived later by the Department of Corrections.

Two suspects have been taken into custody in connection with a pair overnight burglaries on Williams and Swan streets, according to Batavia PD.

Police are investigating whether the pair were involved in other recent residential burglaries.

On Tuesday, the alleged burglars entered occupied residences on Williams Street and Swan Street in the early morning hours.

Take into custody shortly after the first reported burglary, at 2:09 a.m., on Swan Street, was Kurt H. Hawkins Jr., 18, who has no permanent address. Hawkins was charged with burglary, 2nd.

Hawkins was located in the area of Williams and Ellicott streets shortly after a homeowner reportedly observed the suspect in his residence. Hawkins reportedly initially tried to flee from police and was taken into custody after a foot chase.

While police were investigating the Williams Street burglary, police received a report of a residential burglary in progress on Swan Street.

The alleged burglar fled the residence and could not be immediately located. Investigators indicate that evidence led them to Michael J. Hilton, 20, no permanent address.

Both Hawkins and Hilton were jailed without bail.

Both Hawkins and Hilton are suspected in other recent residential burglaries and additional charges may be pending.

Twenty-four-year-old Tricia Tundo will serve five years probation, avoiding a possible one-and-a-half year jail sentence after pleading guilty in July to the unlawful disposal of the precursor materials to methamphetamine.

Tundo appeared before Genesee County Court Judge Robert Noonan this morning, visibly pregnant and much less gaunt than in previous court appearances. Defense attorney Tom Williams spoke on Tundo's behalf, saying she has attended counseling and passed multiple drug tests since she was released from custody following the meth bust at her South Byron home in April.

"I know nothing of the effects of this drug on the body, but I can tell you that Ms. Tundo's appearance has changed dramatically since I first met her at Wyoming County Correctional Facility several months ago," Williams said. "She appears in good spirits...she's no longer looking so sickly and thin."

Williams also made note to Judge Noonan that Tundo is expecting her first child in the second week of November.

Noonan maintained that Tundo "has not fully acknowledged an awareness of the drug activity that surrounded her." But he noted that this is Tundo's first criminal offense, and spared her the jail time. Tundo's driver's license will also be suspended.

Meanwhile, a check of county court records revealed today that Matthew Zon is two weeks into his prison sentence for his role in the South Byron meth lab. Zon was sentenced on Sept. 13 to three years in prison, followed by five years probation. As part of his plea deal, Zon forfeited ownership of a 2005 Chevrolet pickup truck.

Zon and Tundo were stopped in that truck on April 14, and were charged after they tried to ditch some methamphetamine materials on the side of the road.

The release of a surveillance tape by the Batavia PD appears to have helped lead investigators to a pair of alleged thieves.

Charges are pending against Trevor M. Pilc, 18, of 404 Jackson St., Batavia, and Michael A. Ames, 19, of 508 Dale Road, Dale.

The duo is accused of burglarizing a number of Batavia businesses during the summer and is currently being held in a Wyoming County jail on similar charges.

The videotape, published on The Batavian, didn't lead to a tip with a name attached, but it did lead to information that helped investigators put some pieces together, Sgt. Pat Corona said.

"(The video) kept people interested in the case and got people talking about it," Corona said. "As a result of that, I did get information about a person talking about one of the burglaries and a name was mentioned in that conversation."

Corona expects burglary charges against Pilc in connection with break-ins at Neptune’s Gardens, 33 Liberty St., occurring on, June 3; Blondie’s Sip and Dip, 670 E. Main St., occurring on July 8; The Batavia Youth Center, 12 MacArthur Drive, occurring on July 23; and Batavia’s Original Pizzeria, 500 E. Main St., occurring on Aug. 6.

Ames also faces probable charges in connections with break-ins and larcenies from Batavia’s Original on Aug. 6 and again on Aug. 30.

Corona said Ames and Pilc both confirmed they are the two people seen in the video.

Each fall these days, as students return to school, the issuing of bullying makes the news again.

Usually, it's related to the tragic suicide of a teenager who was picked on by his peers.

This fall, the death wasn't too far from home.

Jamey Rodemeyer, a freshman at Williamsville North High School took his own life after years of being victimized by bullies.

The case has drawn the attention of Erie County law enforcment, which is a reminder that bullying isn't just cruel. It's a crime.

Yesterday morning, I spoke with Det. Rich Schauf of Batavia PD and this morning I spoke with Christopher Dailey, principal at Batavia HS, about how bullying is handled within the city. Much of the information they have to share should be applicable throughout Genesee County.

The primary laws that could be used to prosecute a bully are harassment, a violation, and aggravated harassment, a misdemeanor.

Harassment usually involves pushing and shoving or similar violent acts that do not cause serious physical injury but are intended to annoy or alarm the victim.

Aggravated harassment is phone calls, text messages and messages left in online venues that are intended to alarm and annoy the victim.

If the bully is, say, 17, and the victim is, for example, 14, a charge of endangering the welfare of a child is also possible.

The age of the bully is also a factor in what police can do with the case and how the judicial system will deal with it.

If the bully is 14 or 15, or younger, there won't be criminal charges filed. Instead intervention and counseling is used to try and change behavior.

If the bully is 16 or older, then it can become a criminal matter.

These days, bullies use electronic devices to victimize their targets -- phone calls, texting, Facebook messages and other websites are used to leave harassing notes.

In the case of Rodemeyer, the most recent abuse meted out toward him was on a blog he set up at Formspring. Among the messages left for him were:

* "Kill your self!!!! You have nothing left!"

* "Listen to us, you're a bad person, you don't belong here, jump off a bridge or something!"

* "Go kill yourself, you're worthless, ugly and don't have a point to live."

When people leave messages like that, Schauf said, even when they're determined to be criminal in nature, proving who left the message can be difficult.

"The bully might say, 'I lost my phone,' and you ask, 'Did you report it missing or stolen?' and they'll say, 'Well, a friend had it,'" Schauff said. "It's really hard sometimes to put that person in the position of having sent the messages. That's an uphill climb in these investigations."

Investigators must prove the bully was physically in control of the computer or phone used to send the messages at the time the messages were sent.

That isn't always easy, Schauf said.

However, just the intervention of law enforcement can sometimes change a bully's behavior, Schauf said, a point Dailey reiterated.

"Usually we get both parents involved (before contacting police) and that puts an end to it," Dailey said. "We get everybody together and hash it out. Usually a visit from police ends it pretty quick if our intervention doesn't work out."

Dailey said the vast majority of the time, when school officials confront a bully about hurtful and harassing cyber messages, the bully fesses up immediately.

School officials take bullying very seriously, Dailey said.

"When something like this comes up (the death of Rodemeyer), it's something all the staff talks about," Dailey said. "It's a reminder to pay attention to this. We don't want it to happen here. We don't want to be the next headline."

Four years ago, the school started a mentoring program for freshmen which includes an orientation day before classes start and mentoring for the freshmen by upperclassmen.

Since the program started, Dailey said, bullying in the school has dropped 22 percent.

"I'd be lying if I said it was gone totally, but it has gone down significantly," Dailey said.

In October, teachers and staff will receive additional training on dealing with bullying.

It's important to take seriously, Dailey said, because unlike with previous generations when somebody might get bullied at school, but then go home and be away from it, in a safe environment, now the bullying follows the victim across the internet and through mobile phones and text messages.

"If I were bullied as a kid, I could escape it," Dailey said. "Now, for these kids who get caught up in that web they cannot escape it, which is why we have to be more vigilant. The old 'boys will be boys' attitude doesn't fly any more."

Schauf said anybody can report bullying to the police, even just a witness -- such as somebody who sees harassing messages online. But in order to press charges, the victim must be willing to cooperate. If there isn't a cooperating victim, police won't be able to complete an investigation and file charges.

That can sometimes be hard to get, Schauf said, because some victims just want the problem to go away and be left alone.

(Schauff encouraged witnesses to call the BPD's confidential tip line, which will go straight to investigators, rather than emergency dispatch when reporting possible bullying. The number is 343-6370.)

The difficulties in prosecuting bullies, Schauf said, are why a good relationship between the police and the school is so important. 

Investigators trust that school officials will bring serious cases to them and handle appropriately those cases they can handle internally.

"Schools have a bit more leeway to take action on the punishment aspect," Schauf said. "We work really well together to mete out the best consequences we can get, working between the two styles."
