NORWICH – More felony charges were filed Friday against an accused used car salesman just after his release from jail.
Donald J. Newell, 49, appeared in Chenango County Court Friday to request a bail reduction. After being released, he was charged with two more felonies out of Norwich City Court, second degree forgery and the first degree filing of a false instrument. Allegedly, Newell forged a victim’s name onto a document and filed it with the Department of Motor Vehicles.
Newell is one of two former owners of the used car dealership Pine Valley Auto, which closed its doors suddenly in July. Newell was arrested Wednesday along with his partner, Julia A. Squires. Newell was charged with several felonies and remanded to the jail on $20,000 bail.
