A Montour Falls man has been sentenced to six years in state prison following a series of crimes that included injuring a State Trooper, the Schuyler County District Attorney’s office announced Thursday.


The 28-year-old, Steven Bonham, faced multiple charges and was sentenced on November 2nd after previously pleading guilty on August 10th, 2023.

Bonham was convicted of second-degree assault and third-degree burglary, both Class D Felonies, as well as fourth-degree criminal mischief and petit larceny, which are Class A Misdemeanors.


His assault conviction came as a result of Bonham injuring a State Trooper during a lawful arrest. The additional charges stemmed from Bonham’s involvement in property crimes that included burglarizing a residence and handling stolen goods.

In addition to his prison term, Bonham will undergo two years of post-release supervision and is mandated to pay $1,869.50 in restitution for the damages incurred. The sentence reflects the severity of the crimes and the impact on the community, including the harm done to law enforcement personnel.
