A Vermont man was sentenced recently in Cheshire County Superior Court in Keene for a 2015 armed robbery in Westmoreland.
Joshua Corliss, 36, of Bellows Falls pleaded guilty to committing armed robbery in Westmoreland in July 2015. According to sentencing documents, he wielded a knife and a club while demanding money from Veronica Wesley, who was working the cash register at Mac’s Convenience Store. He was sentenced to three to six years in N.H. State Prison, all suspended for five years, and credited for 10 days of time served. He was ordered to pay $265 in restitution to Mac’s and to have no contact with Wesley or the store.
Others recently sentenced include:
Jordan M. Suarez, 23, of Marlborough pleaded guilty to disseminating private sexual images, a felony, in Cheshire County in August. According to sentencing documents, he shared private intimate photos of a woman with the intent to “harass, intimidate, threaten, or coerce” her. He was sentenced to two to five years in state prison and credited for 35 days of time served.
Suarez also pleaded guilty to two felony charges for committing stalking-domestic violence twice in Keene, in August and September. According to sentencing documents, in August, he jumped out from behind bushes when the woman was leaving her mother’s home and tried to get into her car; after he failed, he followed her on foot and by bicycle and sent her “threatening (text) messages.” In the September incident, he violated a protective order against contacting her by sending a letter to a family member of hers, according to the documents, which also note that Suarez had previously been convicted of stalking, in March and September 2017.
On each stalking charge, he was sentenced to three to six years in state prison, all suspended for 10 years. These sentences are concurrent with each other and consecutive to his sentence for disseminating private sexual images.
He also pleaded guilty to violating his probation on a 2017 misdemeanor conviction for committing theft by unauthorized taking in Keene in December 2016. He was sentenced to 240 days in jail, though he won’t serve any of that due to a 240-day credit for time served.
Abayomi M. Akinbode, 31, of Hinsdale pleaded guilty to committing simple assault in Hinsdale in October 2017. According to sentencing documents, he caused “unprivileged physical contact” with someone. He was sentenced to 360 days in the Cheshire County jail. All but 15 days of the sentence is deferred for 12 months, and during that time, the court can impose, terminate, suspend or further defer the sentence for an additional two years. He was credited for two days of time served and ordered to have no contact with his victim.
Prosecutors dismissed two charges of domestic violence-simple assault and one count of endangering the welfare of a child, all misdemeanors.
