If convicted on all charges, he faces a maximum of 25 years in prison.
DA Flynn commends the Buffalo Police Department for their work in the investigation.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney John P. Gerken, Jr. of the DA’s Tactical Prosecution Unit.
As are all persons accused of a crime, the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
