NORWICH – Several alleged offenders were arraigned for various crimes at Chenango County Court.
• Kajaun A. Bunn, 30, Brooklyn, was charged with the class B felony of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree and the class a misdemeanor of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree. He is currently incarcerated in the Chenango County Correctional Facility.
Bunn pleaded not guilty to all counts.
“Judge, the defendant has a previous conviction of attempted murder. He was released to parole on June, 7 of 2007. He was running a drug house here and has ties outside this community. He is not from this community. I would ask that bail be set at $100,000,” said McBride.
Revoir set bail at $100,000 cash or $750,000 bond.
“I will make sure that you are assigned new council. We will have new council for you by the end of the day,” said Revoir to Bunn.
• Adam S. Holt, 24, New Berlin, class E felony of grand larceny in the fourth degree and the class A misdemeanors of driving while intoxicated, petit larceny and obstructing governmental administration in the second degree. He is currently incarcerated in the Chenango County Correctional Facility.
Holt pleaded not guilty to all counts.
Said McBride, “The defendant does not currently have a home. He stole a car, drove it drunk and crashed it. When the police were called, he got into a fight with the police. If someone gave him a place to live, I would not object to him being released and going to A.T.I.”
Wentworth told the Judge that Holt’s mother lives in Norwich and it is somewhere he could live if he was released.
Holt was advised by the district attorney to “Get a job, listen to A.T.I. and become a productive member of society.” He is still in custody and has not been released.
• Steven A. Cutting, 30, Norwich, was charged with the class E felony of grand larceny in the fourth degree and the class A misdemeanor of petit larceny. He was arrested on Nov. 1 and is currently incarcerated in the Chenango County Correctional Facility.
Cutting pleaded not guilty to all counts.
“The defendant was out on parole for a prior felony and allegedly committed the crime right after being released. He stole a car and went into numerous other cars and stole property. We would ask that bail be set at $25,000,” said McBride.
“My client is not a flight risk, we would ask that bail be set to a lesser amount, Judge,” said Wentworth.
Revoir set bail to $25,000 cash or $100,000 insurance bond.
• Mark N. Crawford, 46, Bainbridge, was charged with the class C felony of aggravated sexual abuse in the second degree and the class A misdemeanor of endangering the welfare of a child. He is currently incarcerated in the Chenango County Correctional Facility.
Crawford pleaded not guilty to all counts.
When Crawford was arraigned by the local court, bail was set at $20,000 cash or $60,000 bond.
“This is a violent felony. He sexually molested a child and caused physical damage to the victim. He is facing a lot of time. He is not an American citizen. He has every reason to flee. He is to be deported when this matter is settled. The people would request that the bail be increased to $100,000,” said District Attorney Joseph McBride...
