JOHNSTOWN- A Gloversville man was sentenced Tuesday in Fulton County Court to 1 1/2 to three years in state prison for his role in a residential burglary ring.
John H. Brayman Jr., 30, of 5 Carpenter St., was sentenced by Judge Polly A. Hoye. Sentencing on the plea arrangement was based on his Aug. 2 guilty plea to one count of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.
Brayman was charged April 4 by Gloversville police with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property. Police said he was one of several suspects charged in connection with a residential burglary ring in Gloversville.
Police said he was charged in connection with a home burglary on South Judson Street in which firearms, a laptop computer and prescription drugs were stolen.

Jamar R. Wright, 28, of 309 W. Bush Road, Johnstown, was sentenced Tuesday by Judge Richard C. Giardino to 1 1/2 years in state prison, 2 1/2 years of post-release supervision, and $200 restitution. The sentence - as part of a plea arrangement - was based on his July 12 guilty plea to one count of fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Wright was arrested Jan. 20 by state police in the town of Johnstown on felony charges of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance after troopers said he was caught with cocaine he planned to sell.
Wright originally was charged with felony counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a controlled substance with the intent to sell. He also was charged with criminal use of drug paraphernalia after troopers said they found scales, as well as unlawful possession of marijuana.
John J. Pasquariello, 44, of Gloversville pleaded guilty Wednesday before Giardino to aggravated driving while intoxicated as a misdemeanor.
Sentencing was adjourned until Oct. 18, but he is expected to receive one year's participation in the county Drug Court program as part of a plea arrangement. He also is slated to receive mandated ignition interlock device installation on his vehicles, a six-months driver's license suspension, a $1,500 fine, a $400 surcharge and $50 DNA fee.
Pasquariello was charged at 12:15 a.m. May 20 by state police on Route 30 in the town of Mayfield for what troopers said was driving drunk while a child was in his vehicle. He was charged with driving while intoxicated, which was upgraded to a felony because of a previous conviction; speeding; and aggravated DWI for driving with a child in the vehicle.
