SYCAMORE – A Sheridan teen who tried to rob a taxi driver at knifepoint in April pleaded guilty to attempted armed robbery Wednesday.

Matthew T. Pausche, 17, of the 2900 block of North 4351st Road, was sentenced to eight years in prison in connection with the incident, which occurred on West Fayette Street in Sandwich. As a part of his plea, a charge of burglary was dismissed. Pausche had been accused of burglarizing several vehicles. 

He was recommended to participate in the impact incarceration program for six months, after which he would be eligible for mandatory supervised release. He would have to serve the prison sentence if he fails to complete the program. 

Pausche was given credit for 46 days served in the DeKalb County Jail.
