NORWICH – Chenango County Court convened Wednesday Nov. 18, to hopefully conclude the matter of Devon L, Ireland, a sex offender accused of violating the terms of his probation.
Ireland, 20, of Norwich had previously appeared in court this past Monday Nov. 16, on a violation of probation matter and was again accompanied by his attorney, Public Defender John Cameron.
Chenango County Court Judge Frank B. Revoir Jr. presided over the case once again.
With the First Assistant District Attorney Michael D. Ferrarese present on behalf of the people.
The suggestion and request made by the Public Defender’s Office on Monday in court was for Ireland to be put into a home for assisted living in the City of Norwich, rather than simply face incarceration, where he would receive no help and would not be supervised as he would be if on probation.
“This is a violation of probation matter alleging that you did violate the terms we set down for you to follow. We did adjourn this matter until today in order to conference. In addition to conferencing, members of Catholic Charities and the Chenango County Behavioral Health Services did give their statements on this matter. Based on their accounts the court is prepared to place you in this housing, if you admit to the violations you are accused of,” said Revoir.
