CANTON — A Gouverneur woman convicted of having sex with a teen in May was designated a Level 2 sex offender in St. Lawrence County Court Tuesday.

Casey E. Garlough, 32, will remain registered as a Level 2 sex offender with the state Division of Criminal Justice Services for life. She is considered a moderate risk for repeat offenses and was not designated a sexual predator, a sexually violent offender or a predicate sex offender.

Garlough was convicted of having sexual relations with a male under the age of 15 during the summer of 2010 and twice in 2012. She pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree rape, a class D felony, on May 7. On Aug. 6, she was sentenced to six months in St. Lawrence County jail and 10 years of probation upon release from jail. An order of protection was issued in favor of the victim for eight years.

Garlough’s arrest came after she was accused of having sexual intercourse and oral sex with a 14-year-old boy in January 2012. She also provided the 14-year-old with alcohol in March, according to troopers.

In other court action Tuesday:

Albert E. Bevins, 20, of 100 County Route 15, DeKalb Junction, was sentenced to three years of probation after vacating a guilty plea to fourth-degree grand larceny, a felony charge, in exchange for petit larceny, a class A misdemeanor.

Mr. Bevins pleaded guilty June 15, 2012, to grand larceny and misdemeanor fifth-degree conspiracy, of which he also was convicted on Tuesday. He was one of six people arrested by Canton village police in May 2012 in connection with a series of vehicle break-ins.

He also was ordered to pay $1,263.25 in restitution and $50 in court fines, fees and surcharges.

Brent G. Carbino, 32, of 166 Tucker Road, Colton, was sentenced to five years of probation after a June 10 guilty plea to one count of aggravated driving while intoxicated, a class E felony.

Mr. Carbino, who previously was convicted of DWI in September 2008 in Ogdensburg, also was ordered to pay $2,570 in fines, fees and surcharges.

Russell F. Dendler, 24, Massena, was sentenced to 42 months in state prison after he was denied entry into the Judicial Diversion Program on July 11. The denial came after no recommendation for treatment was made.

Mr. Dendler, a second felony offender, pleaded not guilty on June 4 to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a class B felony. He allegedly possessed heroin with intent to sell the drug in the town of Louisville. No date for that allegation was available.

He also was sentenced to two years of post-release supervision and ordered to pay $375 in court fines, fees and surcharges.

Joshua J. Love, 22, of 81 Chase St., Massena, pleaded guilty to third-degree rape, a class E felony.

Love was arrested on April 25 by state police on charges that he provided alcohol to a 16-year-old girl Jan. 11 or 12 in the village and engaged in intercourse and oral sex with her when she became intoxicated.

Sentencing was adjourned to Oct. 21.

Danny J. Mashaw, 49, Morristown, was sentenced to an indeterminate sentence of 15 to 45 months in state prison for third-degree burglary, a class D felony. He also was ordered to pay $375 in court fines, fees and surcharges.

Joelle A. Porter, 23, of 1560 Route 37, Hogansburg, was sentenced to three years of probation after a vacated felony plea.

Ms. Porter, who on June 20, 2012, pleaded guilty to felony possession and transportation of unstamped cigarettes, a class D felony, was stopped in May 2011 by U.S. Border Patrol agents. The agents found more than 75 cartons of the contraband in her vehicle.

That guilty plea was reduced to possession of untaxed cigarettes, a class A misdemeanor. Her probation was transferred to Franklin County and she was ordered to pay $13,640 in restitution.

Nekeda Smith, 38, Brooklyn, pleaded not guilty to first-degree promoting prison contraband, a class D felony.

It is alleged that on May 11, Ms. Smith knowingly and unlawfully introduced a razor blade into the Riverview Correctional Facility in Ogdensburg. She was arrested by state police and sent to St. Lawrence County jail.

She was released under probation supervision pending continued court proceedings.

Tyler W. Wells, 22, Gouverneur, was sentenced to five years of probation after pleading guilty to felony third-degree burglary and third-degree criminal trespassing and petit larceny, both misdemeanors.

Mr. Wells broke into a home on Route 22 in Fowler, a Bressett Road home in the town of Gouverneur and a National Grid power station in Fowler, where he admitted to stealing copper.

He also was ordered to pay $50 in court fines, fees and surcharges and $300 in restitution.

Christina M. Morehouse, 46, of 19 A Schoolhouse Road, Canton, was sentenced to one year in county jail for violating her July 16, 2012, five-year probation sentence.

Her vehicle became stuck in a snowbank on Route 11 in Canton in February 2011, when police reported her blood alcohol content was 0.23 percent. A BAC of 0.08 percent or more is considered proof of intoxication under state law. She pleaded guilty on May 1, 2012, to one count of aggravated driving while intoxicated, a class E felony under Leandra’s Law, because she had her two children, ages 7 and 11, in the car at the time.

Jordan C. Willette, 23, of 2 Crary Drive, Canton, was sentenced to five years of probation after a June 3 guilty plea to fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a class D felony, and fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a class E felony.
