GREECE, N.Y. (WHEC) — The cousins charged with kidnapping two children from their Greece foster home last year have been convicted by a jury.
Their biological father, 30-year-old Dimitri Cash, and his cousin, 23-year-old Joenathan Cash, were found guilty on all counts.
A woman named Kimara J. Pluviose was also arrested and charged after the two children were found in a vehicle police say she was driving in Montgomery, Alabama.
The children’s foster father testified that he came home to find his wife duct-taped, with cuts on her face, five hysterical children, and that the two kids were nowhere to be found.
Two days later, Dimitri Cash was arrested in Rochester.
Monday Dimitri and Joenathan were both convicted of kidnapping in the second degree, two counts of burglary in the first degree, robbery in the second degree and two counts of conspiracy in the fourth degree in connection to the Jan. 18, 2021 incident.
Dimitri was also convicted of reckless endangerment in the second degree, two counts of custodial interference in the second degree, and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child for a prior incident that occurred at Autumn Lane Elementary School in January 2020.
Dimitri and Joenathan are scheduled to be sentenced on July 28.
