— On the ride back to Albany from Goshen, Porco closed his eyes and fell asleep in the back seat of the sheriff's car.

"The two supervisors told me he nodded off on his way back from Goshen," said Campbell. So far, jail officials do not believe Porco will be a problem while he is in Albany County's jail.

"He answers when he is spoken to," said Campbell. "He is not a problem inmate."

There are five different classifications of prisoners at the Albany County Jail and Porco will live in a unit with inmates of similar criminal charges.

"You don't want someone with a DWI in there with someone charged with murder," said Campbell.

Porco will eat his meals in his cell and will be allowed outside once a day to shower. After a few days, the man who celebrated his 23rd birthday just last month will be a part of the regular inmate population. After sentencing in October, Porco will be sent downstate to live.

"He will go to the downstate correctional facility in Fishkill, where all newly admitted inmates in the state corrections facilities go," said Campbell.

Porco could be sent to any one of 17 maximum-security correctional facilities run by the state including, Green Haven, Sing-Sing or Attica State prison.

Porco could face anywhere from 50 years to life in prison upon sentencing.

Kindlon is filing an appeal, but has not commented on what grounds the appeal is based.
