Two involved in a 2018 robbery in Geneva get prison time and may need to pay more than $40K in restitution

CANANDAIGUA — The second and third robbers charged in the May 2018 armed robbery of the Geneva Pick Quick have pleaded guilty and await a restitution hearing.

Jessica Cram, 28, pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery and bail jumping in exchange for a sentence of five years in state prison, plus five years of post release supervision. Miguel Perez pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery, second-degree robbery, second-degree kidnapping and bail jumping. He was sentenced to seven and a half years plus five years of post-release supervision. 

The two join Orlando Perez-Lopez, who was previously sentenced to eight years for his role in the brazen robbery.

“This was a vicious armed robbery.” said Ontario County District Attorney James Ritts after the plea. “They knocked down, zip tied and pointed a gun in the face of the workers as they robbed the place.”

According to Ritts, the total sought at the restitution hearing this fall is anticipated to be in excess of $40,000: The money stolen included approximately $17,000 in cash; the rest in checks that were cashed at the store.

In March, Ontario County sheriff's deputies traveled to Greene County in North Carolina to pick up Perez and Cram, who were apprehended by the U.S. Marshals Service.

Neither Cram or Perez had anything to say when State Supreme Court Justice Craig Doran offered them the opportunity prior to sentencing.

The restitution hearing is scheduled for Sept. 18.
