GUILDERLAND — An Albany man has been charged in five separate incidences, stealing property valued at over $11,000, according to a release from Guilderland Police.

GUILDERLAND — Tasheem Maeweather will remain in prison because the state’s highest court, the Court of Appeals, has declined to hear the appeal on his case, attorney Terence Kindlon told The Enterprise Friday, the same day he learned of the court’s decision.

The cases against Richard Sherwood and Thomas Lagan — following their arrests in February 2018 — are closing, with the first sentencing, of Lagan, in county court this week. He still needs to be sentenced in federal court, in December. Sherwood will be sentenced in county and federal court in December.

Richard Sherwood

Asked by The Enterprise how much Sherwood has forfeited to date, Assistant United States Attorney Michael Barnett said that that information is not public and that it is also not knowable at this point, since many of Sherwood’s forfeited assets are bank and brokerage accounts, whose value can fluctuate. Barnett added, “I can say it does not equate to what was stolen.”
