Monroe, NY - A 26 year old Harriman man was in court today, accepting a plea deal in the robbery of a Kiryas Joel resident outside a convenience store late last fall that turned violent.

Matthew Bauman pled guilty to attempted first degree armed robbery, a felony, in the incident which took place on November 24th. Bauman was also charged with felony assault and gun charges.

As previously reported on VIN News, Bauman pulled a gun on 18 year old Aron Weiss of Kiryas Joel, demanding money and then shooting his victim in the shoulder when he turned to flee.

State police said that Bauman, who had been previously arrested several times on drug charges, deliberately chose the Quick Shop kosher convenience store on River Road, using a gun stolen from a family member in his attempt to get money to finance his drug habit.

Bauman admitted in court that the gun in question, a .38 caliber Ruger, had been taken by his father without permission.  Bauman said that he was fully aware that the legally registered gun was loaded and in working order and said that he fired a single shot from that gun in the botched robbery.


Bauman is expected to be sentenced to 11 years in prison as part of a plea bargain agreement, which also includes five years of supervised parole after his release.

Bauman remains in the Orange County jail and will be sentenced on May 24th.

When he fired his shot he did not care if Mr. Weiss will be dying from his wounds so let him ROT in jail and after serving his full sentence he will be forgiven by Dept. of Corrections
