Three local teens are facing up to 15 years in prison after they pleaded guilty to a string of robberies.

On Tuesday in Orange County Court, Tajh Ali-Williams, 17, Kedney Celestin, 18, and Flancy Longuefosse, 17, all of Middletown, each pleaded guilty to multiple counts of first and second degree robbery and burglary.

The trio admitted they committed a string of robberies in the City of Middletown and the Town of Wallkill between August 2016 and February 2017.

Ali-Williams admitted that he, and others aiding him, displayed what appeared to be firearms when they committed robberies at: a Popeye’s restaurant in the Town of Wallkill, on August 31, 2016; a Dunkin Donuts store in the Town of Wallkill, on September 11, 2016; a Citgo gas station in the City of Middletown, on November 6, 2016; a Sunoco gas station in the City of Middletown, on November 22, 2016; a Valero gas station in the City of Middletown, on February 7, 2017; a Domino’s restaurant in the Town of Wallkill, on February 16, 2017; and the Sam’s Mart in the City of Middletown, on February 16, 2017.

Ali-Williams, Celestin, and Longuefosse each also admitted to forcibly breaking into a Nathan’s restaurant in the Town of Wallkill on October 31, 2016.

The Orange County District Attorney’s Office is recommending that Ali-Williams and Celestin each be sentenced to 15 years in prison and Longuefosse, who was charged with fewer robberies, be sentenced to eight years in prison.
