A man who was recently convicted of second-degree attempted burglary (a Class-C Felony) received his prison sentencing earlier in the week at Cortland County Court.

Todd Brady, 33, was sentenced to six years in prison and five years of post-release supervision. He originally had a third-degree criminal mischief (a Class-E Felony) charge, but the charge was waived during the plea deal.

In October of last year, a city of Cortland police report noted Brady ransacked a residence on Hill Street and had broken into all of the interior doors

Brady “fought” with a custodian on site and “tried to hold the door shut” on the individual, the report continued. The custodian managed to escape the residence and run off.

According to court documents, Brady caused significant damage to a handful of doors in the residence. Brady damaged a bedroom door, causing it to “break in half” and “rip off the hinges.”

Brady also pried open three locked bedroom doors, causing damage to each of them. The total cost of four damaged doors came out to roughly $900.

Brady declined to comment on his sentencing, but filed to appeal it. Details on Brady’s sentencing appeal have yet to be determined.

Back in April 2014, Brady was sentenced to 18 months in prison for his conviction of criminal sale of a controlled substance, also a felony.
