Second McDonald’s robber sentenced to prison

ALBANY, N.Y. – An Albany man has been sentenced after he admitted to robbing a McDonald’s.

Hector Ferraris, 33, was sentenced to three years in State Prison, to be followed by one and a half years of Post-Release Supervision, on Thursday morning.

On October 30, Ferraris pleaded guilty to one count of Attempted Robbery in the Second Degree, a Violent Felony.

On the morning of August 4, Ferraris and Jose Rivera Jr., entered a McDonald’s in Colonie where Rivera was employed. Inside, Ferraris and Rivera unlawfully attempted to rob the restaurant with what appeared to be a gun, but they were stopped when an employee of the McDonald’s recognized Rivera’s voice and asked him to stop. Rivera then struck the employee and fled along with Ferraris.

The incident was caught on surveillance video and Rivera later confessed to law enforcement.

On September 25, Rivera pleaded guilty to one count of Attempted Robbery in the Second Degree, a Violent Felony, and on November 20, 2014, was sentenced to five years in State Prison, to be followed by five years of Post-Release supervision.
