Police say a local man was a ‘no show’ at sentencing

Police say a man who may live in the Utica or Herkimer area is wanted by authorities after they say he failed to show up for sentencing on two convictions.

Thomas J. Wall, 29, who Oneida County Sheriff’s Investigator Sahid Karcic said may live in the Utica or Herkimer area, did not show up for sentencing on two convictions earlier in July. Wall is wanted on two arrest warrants issued by Judge RL Bauer in Oneida County Court, Karcic said.

The first term is for burglary 2nd (felony), petty larceny (misdemeanor) charges, and the second term involves a grand larceny 4th (felony) charge. In either case, Karcic says Wall also failed to cooperate with Probation regarding the pre-sentence investigation.
