Serial Burglar Sentenced to Ten Years in NYS Prison


Michael T. Baldwin Reports

An Allegany County Jail inmate will soon have a change of address. 41-year-old Joshua L. Maxwell of Belfast was sentenced in Belmont Wednesday morning to serve ten years in state prison for his conviction of second-degree burglary.


The specific charge stems from an incident in Scio August 23, 2020. He was accused of stealing firearms, ammunition, knives and tools. He was also accused of at least eight other burglaries in Allegany and Wyoming counties.

Maxwell is a four-time convicted felon. He was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Amanda Finn and was represented by Assistant Public Defender Paul DiCola. Judge Thomas Brown handed down the sentence.
