Michael Latour, a 23-year-old Elmira resident, has pleaded guilty to a charge of first-degree burglary, a class B armed violent felony, after he was accused of entering a home in Conquest, Cayuga County, and brandishing a firearm at the residents.


The indictment alleges that Latour entered the home in November 2022 with the intent to commit larceny.

Cayuga County District Attorney Brittany Grome Antonacci announced that Latour’s sentencing is scheduled for October 3, 2023, and he could face up to 10 years in prison with five years of post-release supervision.

Two co-defendants, Johnathan Wellington, 28, and Kyler Love, 32, both of Auburn, pleaded guilty in May 2023 to one count of second-degree hindering prosecution, a class E felony. The indictment alleges both men assisted Latour in the home invasion, and they each face potential imprisonment of one and a quarter to four years.
