NORWICH Several individuals were arraigned in Chenango County Court on Dec. 16.
Dewayne O. Weir, 38, Norwich, was charged with the class D felony of burglary in the third degree and the class A misdemeanor of petit larceny. Weir is currently incarcerated in the Chenango County Correctional Facility.
Weir pleaded not guilty to all counts.
Weir explained that he was sentenced for a misdemeanor out of the Town of Norwich Court and expect to be released in Jan. for good time he has served.
The defendant is not being held on his current charges. I would ask that bail be set so he gets some credit. The defendant recently came here from out of state, he is originally from Arkansas. He has a criminal history there, including an escape charge that was dismissed, said Assistant District Attorney Stephen M. Dunshee.
I have only been up here a little over a year. I live with my fiancee who is right over there. said Weir, pointing to a woman in the back of the courtroom.
I have PTSD, which causes me to have mood swings. I was finished with my community service with Roots and Wings, before going to jail, and they were going to have me go to Serendipity.
We will look at the issue of bail again after you are released, but I am setting bail now, so you get credit for these charges, said Judge Frank B. Revoir, Jr.
Bail was set at $5,000 cash.
Gregory J. Rose, 36, Norwich, charged with the class D felony of burglary in the third degree and the class A misdemeanor of petit larceny.
Rose pleaded not guilty.
