NORWICH – A pair of warrants were issued after two alleged felons failed to appear in Chenango County Court Monday, while Friday’s court proceedings found Judge Frank B. Revoir Jr. denying a written request for the return of a pistol confiscated as part of a recent investigation and overseeing a pre-trial hearing in the case of the People versus Mark J. Williams.
• A written request for the return of a Taurus .45 caliber pistol was reviewed and ultimately denied by Chenango County Court Judge Frank B. Revoir Jr. on Friday.
The pistol was confiscated and is currently in the possession of the New York State Police in Norwich following an incident involving a Kyle Davis, 23, of Sherburne. It’s alleged that Davis did point the loaded weapon, with a chambered round, at another individual. It is also alleged that Davis fired the same weapon in the presence of police officers, although no injuries were reported.
The request for the return of the pistol was written by Davis’ father, Ronald Davis, who claimed he had – at the time of the incident – been in the process of purchasing the gun from his son. First Assistant District Attorney Stephen M. Dunshee asked that the request be denied, noting that Davis allegedly leveled the weapon at his wife’s face in front of their child, and citing his belief that – should the weapon be returned – it would find its way back into Kyle’s possession. Judge Revoir ruled in favor of Dunshee’s request, noting that Davis’ father included no proof of the alleged sale.
