QUEENSBURY -- A Queensbury teen who committed a burglary in May was put on interim probation for a year last week after his guilty plea to a felony burglary count.

Darien M. Naylor, 18, pleaded guilty to third-degree burglary, court records show. He was arrested by the Warren County Sheriff's Office in October after an investigation into a burglary 5 months earlier. It was unclear if a home or other building was burglarized.

Warren County Judge John Hall placed Naylor on interim probation for a year, which will include 100 hours of community service. If he does well during the year, he faces 5 years on probation. If not, he faces a jail or prison term.

    How do you know that a burglar will not harm someone? When someone confronts them they may become violent.

    No, you have mischaracterized my comments. I just want the courts to hold those who victimize people accountable. How about the victims? You have no concern for them? The upright, decent law-abiding citizen is not extinct. I still feel that the average person is good. It is the criminal element which is the minority. I don't want criminals to be harmed physically, but I do expect them to monetarily compensate their victims.

    To be honest it's hard to sympathize with anyone who stereotypes in saying all people who are admitting their mistakes in court are threats to society. If your really upset at the way warren county handles these cases than you should vote for politicians who are going to overcrowd the jail and burden the tax paying citizens with the bill. Step back and look at the big picture my friend, everybody makes mistakes and the upright citizen is an extinct animal. It sounds to me like you would rather jump on the nazi death train and rid the world of burglars because you were victimized. Very Hitler-like rhetoric!!!!!!

    My home was broken into. I have the right to be concerned about what the burglars are doing. Warren County has a lot of criminals on probation that should be in jail. How do you know that any one of these convicted criminals will not break into someone else's house? You have zero sympathy for victims like myself.

    Rest assured he is no threat. Just a teenager who made the wrong decision. As far as court proceedings being open to the public means you would have to actually step away from your PC and go to the courthouse and follow these hardened criminal's cases from start to finish. I suppose you rely on cnn to report the facts also! It is this thought process that has flipped the justice system into "guilty until proven innocent", where nobody gets a fair deal and prosecutors are going for the max to win cases and elections. Word of advice, next time you peek out your window to look out for burglars, unlock your door, step outside and take a look around at the real world!

    Anyone who is 18 years old is legally considered an adult. Why all the secrecy about the details of this case? I thought that court proceedings are open to the public, and I fail to see any reason to conceal the facts that led to the charges. People in the area need to know that an admitted burglar is at large in the area; where is his mugshot? Doesn't the public have any right to know who is a threat to them?
