STAFF REPORTS



ROCHESTER -- Scott Kennedy, 40, of Beaver Dams, who was convicted of conspiracy to manufacture, possess with intent to distribute, and to distribute, 500 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing methamphetamine, was sentenced to 235 months in prison by Chief U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Katelyn M. Hartford, who handled the case, stated that between June 2012, and May 4, 2016, Scott Kennedy conspired with others, including Wendy Kennedy, Jared Mendez, and Terry Champion, to manufacture and distribute methamphetamine. Kennedy distributed large amounts of methamphetamine with and to people throughout the area of Schuyler, Chemung, and Steuben Counties in New York. During that time, defendant personally manufactured large amounts of methamphetamine at his home at 44 Campground Road in the Town of Catlin and on the property maintained by his sister, Wendy Kennedy, at 2200 County Route 19 in the Town of Dix.

Kennedy also received assistance from numerous co-conspirators who provided him with supplies with the intent that he would use those supplies to manufacture methamphetamine. Jared Mendez, for example, sold stolen anhydrous ammonia to Kennedy, while Terry Champion sold pseudoephedrine to Kennedy.

Jared Mendez, Terry Champion, and Wendy Kennedy have been convicted of charges stemming from the conspiracy and will be sentenced on December 1, 2017, November 30, 2017, and December 19, 2017, respectively. Charges are pending against another co-defendant, Quinton Harrison. The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Today’s sentencing is the result of an investigation by the New York State Police, Special Investigations Unit, Rochester; the New York State Police, CNET Southern Tier, under the direction of Major Richard Allen; the Schuyler County Sheriff’s Department, under the direction of William Yessman; and the Schuyler County District Attorney’s Office, under the direction of District Attorney Joseph Fazzary.
