NORWICH – The Chenango County Court convened for a morning session on Monday, June 27, where the case of Larry J. Meeker Jr. was heard. Assistant District Attorney Laura Parker represented the people of Chenango County, while Meeker was represented by Diane DiStefano, who appeared in place of the absent F. Paul Battisti. The Honorable Judge Frank B. Revoir Jr. presided over matters.

It was alleged that Meeker, 33, of Bainbridge, operated an ATV on a public highway on March 14, 2015, in the Town of Coventry, while he had 0.11 of one percent of alcohol in his blood as shown by chemical analysis of his breath.

The class D felony of driving while intoxicated accuses Meeker of operating said vehicle while in an intoxicated condition. Per his indictment in May of 2015, Meeker’s speech was slurred, he swayed as he walked, had bloodshot eyes, and his breath smelled of alcoholic beverage.

In a plea agreement with the District Attorney's Office, Meeker agreed to enter a plea of guilty to the charge of operating a motor vehicle while he had .08 of one percent or more by weight of alcohol in his blood, a class D felony.
