Details on former Auburn cop prison sentence

Former Auburn police officer Brian Hutchings was sentenced today in Cayuga County Court. Below are details of the sentencing provided by the Cayuga County District Attorney’s office.He was convicted of all eleven counts (upon verdict/sheet issued June 18th(following a non-jury trial June 4th -7th and June 11th-12th) (Hon. Mark H. Fandrich, presiding)Judge Fandrich sentenced Hutchings today as follows:Counts 1-2 PL §190.65 Scheme to Defraud in the First Degree (2 cts) 1⅓-4 years prisonCount 3 PL §155.35 Grand Larceny in the Third Degree (1 ct) 2⅓-7 years prisonCounts 4-6 PL §155.30 Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree (3 cts) 1⅓-4 years prisonCounts 7-11 PL §155.25 Petit Larceny (5 cts) 1 year jailAll of these sentences were to run concurrently with each other (at the same time) meaning his total sentence was 2⅓-7 years prison. However, this sentence is to run consecutively with the 1 to 3 year prison term he is currently serving following his February 2011 jury verdict and May 2011 sentence.The Court also imposed $62,000 restitution to the Cayuga PBA (Auburn Police Department Police Benevolent Association). The Court imposed $50 DNA testing/administration fee and issued an Order of Protection to two witnesses.The defendant faced up to 4-12 years on this conviction (if 3 Grand Larceny charges had been consecutively imposed) (and the People requested this). He previously faced up to 6 to 18 years upon the first verdict (if consecutive sentences had been imposed). The People also sought reimbursement for the taxpayers of Cayuga County for investigative expenses and for the Assigned Counsel costs (for this, his fifth attorney but first assigned attorney) as he still owns a $225,000 home and is therefore clearly not indigent.
