ALBANY, N.Y.—A Cohoes man was sentenced to five years in State Prison on Thursday.

Patrick Kearns, 33, pleaded guilty to one count of Attempted Robbery in the first degree on February 13, 2014.

On November 29, 2013, Kearns held a knife to a victim outside of Spindle City Market and demanded a bag that the victim was carrying which contained pipe tobacco and cigarette rolling papers.

Once Kearns was arrested and sent to the Albany County Correctional Facility, he made multiple calls in order to arrange for the victim to be offered money in exchange for not testifying against him.
