Pattyson To Serve 10 Years In State Prison

MAYVILLE – A Cherry Creek man will spend the next 10 years in state prison after being sentenced in Chautauqua County Court.

David W. Foley, Chautauqua County district attorney, announced several pleas and sentences resulting from county court proceedings Tuesday.

Kevin M. Pattyson, 22, of 578 Southside Ave., entered the first-degree burglary plea March 18 and at the time, Foley said the court – with the consent of the district attorney’s office, the victim and her family – committed to the 10-year state prison term plus five years of post-release supervision.

According to a report following the June 18, 2012, incident, a male suspect entered a home on Southside Avenue while a woman was painting inside. The man allegedly pushed the woman to the ground several times and tackled her when she tried to exit the residence. Police said the suspect grabbed the woman by the hair, hit her head on the concrete several times, ripped a chunk of hair from her head and then ran away.

In March, Foley said he was pleased to get the plea, and thanked the victim for their patience and cooperation with investigators. The district attorney also thanked the New York State Police. No reduced plea was ever sought, Foley said.

“This was an individual who made the decision to enter a home and attack a person who was not acquainted with him,” Foley said. “I can’t imagine what an awful ordeal this must have been for the victim, and I am happy to see that as a result of his actions he will spend the next decade behind bars.”

A Mayville woman who pleaded guilty March 1 to third-degree robbery was sentenced to 1 to 4 years in state prison to run concurrently with time served for two counts of petit larceny

Jennifer Gens, 36, of 6 Oak St., robbed the Southern Chautauqua Credit Union at 562 Clymer-Sherman Road in Clymer. Police say a woman demanded money and indicated she had a gun. More than $3,700 was taken, although no gun was ever shown or located. Shortly after the robbery, police canvassed the neighborhood and reviewed surveillance footage. Several tips from area residents led authorities to Gens.

At the time of her plea deal, Ned Barone, Chautauqua County public defender, said he was pleased to see all three felonies resolved in the deal.

“She does have children,” he said. “She is a mother and has other responsibilities. We’re glad that we were able to get this resolved and allow her to move forward.”
