State court agrees with county, denies appeal for drunk driver

NORWICH – A defiant woman who maintained her innocence even after being convicted of DWI has had her appeal case rejected by the state appeals court.

The New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department affirmed the ruling of the Chenango County Court after reviewing the case of Rita L. Warner, 33, of Binghamton.



Warner was found guilty of driving while intoxicated by a jury of her peers on Sept. 25, 2006. She was sentenced to 30 days incarceration at the Chenango County Correctional Facility, five years probation and over $1,200 in fees and fines.

Warner’s attorney told the court that, as a result of her felony conviction, her vocational and educational options were limited and she had spent thousands of dollars on her defense and appeal.
