Three-time con busted for burglary, resisting arrest


A State Street man who has spent much of his adult life in prison faces felony charges after he entered a house on Ellicott Avenue and then fought with police.

Kevin M. Waleski Jr., 32, was found inside an enclosed patio at the house during the early-morning hours of June 26, city police said.

Waleski struggled with police before being taken into custody.

He was charged with second-degree burglary, criminal mischief, attempted criminal mischief, resisting arrest and obstruction of governmental administration.

He was arraigned via Skype and committed to Genesee County Jail without bail.

Waleski has an extensive criminal history, dating back to when he was 16 and charged with forcibly raping a girl.

He eventually pleaded guilty to sex abuse and was sentenced to two years in prison, the first of three prison terms he has served.

He was convicted in 2012 of attempted burglary and was sentenced to 18 months to three years, was paroled but violated parole and returned to serve out the remainder of that term.

He was released March 11, 2015 and three months later crashed an all-terrain vehicle while drunk, his second DWI.

He was sentenced to one to three years and was released in July 2018.
