NORWICH – Six individuals charged with various misdemeanor and felony crimes appeared in county court Friday and Monday, four pleading guilty and two not guilty, with several defendants released pending sentencing.
• Cory L. Reynolds, 25, Bainbridge, pleaded guilty to one count of third degree criminal sale of a firearm, a class D felony, and will be sentenced to one year at the Chenango County Correctional Facility at a later date.
It’s alleged that Reynolds, in February of 2012, in the Town of Bainbridge, did criminally sell a firearm – a Phoenix Arms Model HP22 .22 pistol – that he did not have a permit for.
Reynolds was released under the condition that he neither possess nor consume any alcoholic beverages, controlled substances or marijuana, and must report as ordered to the county’s Treatment Court coordinator for regular testing. If he were to violate the terms of his release, he could face up to seven years in state prison. He will re-appear in court at a later date.
• Matthew C. Goodwin, 29, Afton, pleaded not guilty to charges of operation of a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content of .08 of one percent or higher and driving while intoxicated, both class E felonies.
