NORWICH – Chenango County Court saw a total of four scheduled court cases related to felony charges on Monday. Three of the cases were for violation of probation admissions, with the fourth appearing for plea and sentencing purposes.
Judge Frank B. Revoir Jr. presided over all matters on the docket, while District Attorney Joseph A. McBride spoke on behalf of the people of Chenango County.
• Rachel G. O'Neill, 37, appeared in court on a allegation of a violation of her probation.
O'Neill was represented by public defender Zachery Wentworth, who sat in for John Cameron.
O'Neill admitted to violating the written conditions of her probation which she was put on due to a previous charge of criminal possession in the fifth degree, a class D felony.
“Being involved in drug sales, the court and community gave her every opportunity to help her become a better community member. Not only did she fail out of every program we put her in, and I don’t know if she is snickering over there to my comments but I hope not, I simply ask that the court impose the agreed upon disposition at this time,” said McBride.
Revoir added, “I never enjoy sending people to state prison. They offer a lot of programs there, and I hope you take advantage of them to help get your drug problem under control.”
O'Neill was sentenced to two years in New York State Prison with one year post release supervision.
The court did not impose any further fees or surcharges but still required O'Neill to submit DNA.
• Robert Burgos, 37, a transfer case out of Broome County Court, appeared on allegations that he violated probation.
Burgos was represented by public defender Zachary Wentworth, who sat in for John Cameron.
