DELHI – District Attorney Shawn Smith announced today that Corey D. Koch, 33, of Deposit, New York, appeared in Delaware County Court on February 20, 2024, and pleaded guilty to Attempted Burglary in the Third Degree, a Class E Felony.       

Koch appeared before the Honorable John L. Hubbard, Delaware County Court Judge, for an arraignment on a Superior Court Information charging Burglary in the Third Degree. The defendant is alleged to have illegally entered the First Baptist Church located in the town of Deposit, and stole property consisting of a silver fork, paper plates and a black plastic container.  

After the arraignment, the defendant pleaded guilty to Attempted Burglary in the Third Degree, a Class E Felony.  This plea was entered as part of a negotiated disposition wherein it is anticipated that the defendant will be sentenced to a 5-year term of felony probation supervision.  If the defendant violates the terms and conditions of his probation, he faces the potential of being re-sentenced to 1 and 1/3 to 4 years in state prison. 

District Attorney Shawn Smith commended State Police Investigator Williams, along with Troopers Kim and Vanwarreby for their thorough investigation into this case.  “My office will continue to work with law enforcement to ensure that individuals committing property and theft crimes are held accountable for their actions.”

As are all defendants accused of a crime, this defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
