Try this free site for old digitized newspapers: https://fultonhistory.com/
It began as NY State only, but has expanded to newspapers of other states.
Also, from the site https://www2.monroecounty.gov/clerk-records.php
"The Monroe County Clerk’s Office is the source for criminal records filed by the New York State Supreme and Monroe County Courts. Only felony convictions are filed in the Monroe County Clerk’s Office."
Perhaps once the Covid lockdown is over you can contact The Monroe County Clerk's Office and ask if they retain records from that time period.
