NORWICH— Man accused of assaulting a Norwich City Police officer was arraigned on Jan. 5 in Chenango County Court by Judge Frank B. Revoir, Jr.

David Quintana, 33, Oxford, was indicted on Dec. 17, 2014 for assault in the second degree, a class D felony; criminal contempt in the second degree, a class A misdemeanor; and assault in the third degree, a class A misdemeanor.

It is alleged on Nov. 22, 2014 at Denny's Restaurant and Bar, located at 75 N. Broad St. in the City of Norwich, Quintana did intentionally cause physical injury to Norwich City Police Officer Adam Francis while he was performing a lawful duty.

While being placed in a patrol vehicle by Officer Francis, Quintana allegedly kicked the door of the patrol vehicle shut while the officer's hand was between the door and the door frame. The officer's hand was crushed, which caused him pain, swelling and bruising.

It is also alleged that Quintana violated a court mandate signed on Dec. 10, 2013 by Judge James E. Downey, preventing him from patronizing establishments that sell alcoholic beverages for on-premise consumption until Dec. 9, 2014.

Quintana was arraigned on Jan. 5 for the class D felony of assault in the second degree, the class A misdemeanor of criminal contempt and the class A misdemeanor of assault in the third degree.

He pleaded not guilty on all counts

According to Ferrarese, Quintana posted a $2,500 bond set by Norwich City Court and was released. Norwich City Court had originally set a $2,500 cash bail or $2,500 bond for Quintana.

“I would request bail be raised to at least $5,000 cash. The defendant was indicted for allegedly assaulting a police officer and faces a substantial state prison sentence,” said Ferrarese.

Ferrarese also said a majority of Quintana's wrap sheet was based out of Orange County, NY. “Obviously he has contacts outside of the area, and I think he poses a flight risk,” said Ferrarese.

Cameron objected to Ferrarese's request to raise bail. “He has been out of jail three weeks. If he posed a flight risk, he wouldn't be here today, Judge,” said Cameron.
