NORWICH – A Norwich man who allegedly confessed to shooting two others with buckshot during an alcohol and drug influenced dispute was released without bail in Chenango County Supreme Court Monday.
Lee M. Bush, 49, appeared before Justice Kevin M. Dowd with his attorney Aaron A. Dean to request that he be released on his own recognizance.
Dowd granted the request at the objection of the Assistant District Attorney Stephen M. Dunshee. Bush had previously been held on $10,000 cash bail.
“Mr. Bush will concede, and I will too, that he has had numerous court appearances over the years and he has regularly appeared when asked by the court,” said Dean.
