The three people convicted of charges stemming from the murder of a Penfield father are expected to learn their fate on Friday.

It's sentencing day for Laura, Colin, and Alex Rideout. The three were found guilty in July of being involved in the murder of Craig Rideout. His body was found in Yates County wrapped in a tarp in July 2016.

Craig's estranged wife Laura and his son Colin were found guilty of murder and tampering with evidence. A jury also convicted Laura on a burglary charge. Another son Alex was convicted of tampering with evidence.

Here is what Judge Thomas Moran has to choose from. This information comes from the DA’s office:

Laura Rideout is facing as much as 25 years to life for the murder charge, and as much as 15 years for the burglary, and one-and-a-third to four years for tampering with evidence. 

Colin is also facing as much as 25 years to life in prison for the murder charge, and as much as one-and-a-third to four years on two tampering with evidence counts.

Alex Rideout was convicted on those two tampering with evidence charges. He faces up to one and a third to four years in prison on both counts. But the way the law is written in New York State, he could even be released and sentenced to conditional discharge.

All three are scheduled to be at the Hall of Justice at 1:30 p.m. Friday for their sentencing. We will have a camera in the courtroom for the sentencing, and will be streaming it live.
