DELHI – District Attorney Shawn Smith announced today that Corey D. Koch, 33, of Deposit, New York, appeared in Delaware County Court on April 8, 2024, and was sentenced to 5 years of felony probation supervision for his conviction of Attempted Burglary in the Third Degree, a Class E Felony.       

Koch appeared before the Honorable John L. Hubbard, Delaware County Court Judge, for sentencing on April 8, 2024. The defendant had previously pleaded guilty to Attempted Burglary in the Third Degree for illegally entering the First Baptist Church located in the town of Deposit, where he stole property and damaged a filing cabinet. 

The Honorable John L. Hubbard sentenced the defendant to 5 years of felony probation supervision and ordered that he must pay restitution to the Baptist Church. The defendant was ordered to provide a sample of his DNA for inclusion in the State’s DNA databank and to pay surcharges in the amount of $375.00.  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.  The defendant faces un-related charges in Broome County which are still pending. 

District Attorney Shawn Smith commended State Police Investigator Williams, along with Troopers Kim and Vanwarrebey for their thorough investigation into this case. While all commercial burglaries are inexcusable, this burglary was appalling as the defendant chose to break into a place of worship- a safe-haven for the church’s members.”
