Defendant: Mirabai Sheridan (DOB 12/09/74)

Dec. 5, 2019 -- Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino Jr. announced Mirabai Sheridan of the Bronx will serve time in state prison for a 2018 push-in robbery in a private house in New Castle. State Supreme Court Justice Barry Warhit presided.

Sheridan pleaded guilty in August to two charges for which she is sentenced to the following:

  • Robbery in the First Degree, a class B violent felony – 8 years in state prison
  • Conspiracy in the Fourth Degree, a class E felony – 1-3 years in state prison

The sentences will run concurrently.

On Oct. 24, 2018, at approximately 12:30 p.m., Mirabai Sheridan and her co-defendant, Philip Budin (DOB 09/05/40) of New York City, spotted their robbery victim at DeCicco’s supermarket in Millwood. They followed her to her home in Chappaqua. Carrying a bouquet of flowers, Sheridan approached the door of the house, armed with a gun, and pushed her way in. She forced the victim to the floor and restrained her hands and wrists with plastic ties. She stole property from the house and fled as Budin waited in the car.

New Castle Police, the Westchester County Police Department and Investigators from the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office investigated the robbery focusing on a number of leads. On Nov. 14, 2018, Sheridan and Budin were found in Mamaroneck following another potential victim from a supermarket. Police pulled them over and arrested them. Police found a gun in Sheridan’s vehicle.

Co-defendant Budin was sentenced earlier to five years’ probation and restitution.

Assistant District Attorney Nadine Nagler, Chief of the Narcotics and Firearms Bureau, prosecuted the cases.
