NORWICH – Editor’s Note: It was erroneously reported in Tuesday’s edition of The Evening Sun that an arrest warrant was issued for a Mr. Jacob Fowlston, and that authorities picked him up on said warrant. In fact, a bench warrant was issued for Fowlston last Friday, and according to the Chenango County District Attorney’s Office, Fowlston entered and exited the courtroom voluntarily on Tuesday morning.

In Tuesday’s, March 7, County Court proceedings, Fowlston – who stands accused of the Class E felony of assault as a hate crime, the class A misdemeanor of assault in the third degree, and the class A misdemeanor of criminal mischief in the fourth degree – and his attorney Zachary Wentworth waived a reading of the details of the charges against Fowlston, Wentworth entered a plea of not guilty on his client’s behalf.

First Assistant District Attorney Michael Ferrarese filed an affidavit of service, stating the people were ready to proceed to trial.

The people asked the court that bail be raised due to the defendant’s failure to appear, and that he is facing a felony charge and if found guilty could be sent to prison.
