Onondaga man who pulled shotgun on deputies sentenced

Arcadio Figueroa listens during sentencing.

Arcadio Figueroa was sentenced today for his involvement in area burglaries, and for menacing after he pointed a gun at sheriffâ??s deputies and asked them to shoot him at his home at 207 Everingham Road in the Town of Onondaga in May.

Figueroa was given three and a half years in prison with two and a half years post release supervision for menacing, three and a half years in prison and two and a half years post release supervision for one burglary charge and a maximum of four years and a minimum of one and a third for the second burglary charge.

The charges will run concurrently.

The judge noted that there were other â??avenuesâ?? that Figueroa could have explored to deal with his â??addictionsâ?? that did not include burglary and threatening deputies with a shotgun.

Figueroa was shot twice by a deputy in the incident, where he pulled a hidden shotgun out from under a mattress and pointed it at one of them, asking for them to shoot him. The second deputy fired at Figueroa, who was treated at Upstate for non-life threatening wounds.

The judge called the deputiesâ?? actions â??appropriate and heroic.â??
