Grand jury indicts six

NORWICH – The Chenango County grand jury met last week and handed up criminal indictments against six individuals for a total of nine felony charges.

At the proceedings, the District Attorney’s Office presents evidence against those they wish to prosecute as a felon and the jury decides if there is enough reasonable cause to charge a person.



An indictment is not a conviction and defendants will appear in Chenango County Court at a later date to answer to the charges.

Five of those indicted last week are between 20 and 26 years old; five have criminal records, three of them with prior felony convictions.

• Daniel Sabines, 23, of Bradley Hill Road, Oxford, and Anthony J. Pierce, 21, of Bloomfield Road, were both indicted for second degree burglary, a C class felony, after the two parolees allegedly went door to door with a fake political petition and then entered a home when no one answered, according to the Norwich City Police Department.

Police said the two coconspirators were confronted by the homeowner and fled.
