NORWICH – Five individual cases were heard throughout the day this past Friday, Nov. 13, in Chenango County Court.
Judge Frank B. Revoir Jr. was the Chenango County Court Judge presiding over each of the cases.
District Attorney Joseph A. McBride was present on behalf of the people.
• Anthone J. Fish, 22, of Norwich was the first matter on the schedule, as Fish was appearing with his attorney Public Defender John Cameron for sentencing purposes.
Fish was originally indicted on Nov. 19, 2014 for assault in the second degree, a class D felony; and assault in the third degree, a class A misdemeanor.
It is alleged that on Oct. 27, 2014 at approximately 4:30 p.m. at the CIT building in the Town of Norwich, that Fish did intentionally cause physical injury to a staff member of the treatment facility. Fish allegedly threw a wooden table at the victim, striking her in the head and causing her to have a concussion.
Fish previously entered a guilty plea on Oct. 23, 2015, to the charge of assault in the second degree, a class D felony.
“The defendant has limitations, but he needs to understand even with the limitations he needs to follow all the rules. It is my understanding that since he has left the CIT, that he has abided by all the rules,” said McBride.
Fish was given a chance to speak on his behalf saying, “I got out of control that day, I didn’t mean to hurt them, I'm sorry.”
Fish was sentenced to two years in the New York State Department of Corrections followed by three years probation following his release.
A written waiver of appeal was signed at the time of sentencing.
• John W. Quinn Jr. of Sherburne was in Chenango County Court for purposes of a possible change of plea and sentencing.
Quinn was represented by Public Defender John Cameron on the matter.
Cameron began by stating for the record what the agreed upon disposition was, “it is proposed that my client would change his not guilty plea to guilty to the charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fourth degree. He would then receive a determinate sentence of five years in the New York State Department of Corrections with three years post release supervision.”
