NORWICH – Two were sentenced, one for intoxicated, illegal driving, and the other for fraud; and two appeared, one for growing marijuana and the other for breaking a window, in Norwich City Court on March 3.
• Jeb Davis, 36, Norwich, was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the second degree.
Aaron Dean was standing in as Davis' public defender and said Davis wanted to make a deal and plead guilty to the charge.
“There is a mandatory fine with that charge, so when is he going to pay that?” said Judge James E. Downey to Dean. “Why don't I just send him to jail?
Regarding Davis paying his fine, Dean said Downey would be “joining the line of 11 other places.”
Downey also said Davis had three or more suspensions on separate days.
“We'll take a week,” said Dean.
“Yeah, he ain't doing nothing else,” said Downey.
Davis pleaded guilty to the AUO in the second degree on March 3.
He was sentenced to 15 days of incarceration in the Chenango County Correctional Facility and one year conditional discharge.
Davis will also be required to pay a $200 fine and $88 surcharge within 30 days of his release from jail.
“When does it get to the point when enough's enough?” said Downey to Davis. “You going to put down the crack bowl and heroin needle?”
