Onondaga County will stop sending 16-and 17-year-old offenders to the Jamesville Penitentiary effective immediately, County Executive Joanie Mahoney has announced. The action is the result of recent pressure from faith leaders and a request by a reporter to tour Jamesville Correctional Facility’s juvenile cell block, where advocates say youths are regularly locked in solitary confinement for weeks and sometimes months at a time.
In the wake of the tragedy, Rev. Randy Czyz said his church, Word of Life Assembly of God, located at 12 E. Oneida St., Baldwinsville, has received threats from people who assume it is associated with the Word of Life Church in New Hartford, where a teen was beaten to death last week. “We’ve been getting harassing threats and some pretty foul language. People are very upset, and I understand why they’re upset,” Czyz said. “I’m upset, too, but I’m trying to clear the air.” He said he and the other staffers at the church have received threats of bodily harm. He wanted to make sure people were aware that the Baldwinsville house of worship is in no way associated with the New Hartford church.
