2A Sunday Spectator — October 29, 1 972 HORNELL — Steuben County Judge Donald G. Purple Jr. of Corning Friday dismissed six indictments against a Hamlin man now serving a long prison sentence at Attica and sentenced several other defendants as a four- weeks trial term came to a close in Hornell. Dismissed on motion of Attorney William J. Holbrook of Hornell were indictments accusing Bernard C. Welch Jr., 30, of burglary and grand larceny in connection with thefts in Corning. Motion for dismissal of the indictments was made by Holbrook Oct. 17 on the grounds that cases against his client were not prosecuted despite the fact that Welch was available to stand trial. In granting Holbrook's motion Friday, Judge Purple explained that three orders were made at Attica Prison for the temporary release of Welch so that he could face the charges against him here. At those times, however, it was noted that the defendant was in other courts facing charges there and not available to Steuben County authorities. Judge Purple explained that in the future he would make his orders for release of prisoners at Attica for trial in this county continuous orders to prevent further incidents of trial delays. He thanked Holbrook and District Attorney John M. Finnerty of Bath for their work in the case. Sentenced to serve three years of probation to the Steuben County Probation Department was Richard L. Travis, 27, of Addison who pleaded guilty earlier this month to a charge of reckless endangerment. Originally indicted in connection with firing a firearm during an incident involving two Addison police officers at his home on Feb. 5 this year, Travis has been held at the County Jail. In passing sentence on Travis, Judge Purple pointed out that the defendant had a drinking problem and stressed, "Help must come from yourself, you've got to do it on your own," after Travis had suggested that he be committed to Rochester State Hospital. As a term of probation, Travis was ordered to abstain from the use of alcoholic beverages and to contact an area chapter of Alcoholics Anonymous. Travis was represented in court by Attorney Donald Yorio of Corning. , Certified by the court as eligible for treatment as an addict under the Mental Hygiene Law was Joel T. Murray, 22, of Rochester, represented by Attorney Eric Schults of Hornell. Charged in connection with an incident last Aug. 17 in Corning, Murray pleaded guilty Friday to a Class A misdemeanor charge of possession of a weapon. The court was informed that Murray had been examined by two psychiatrists and certified a drug addict. In noting this fact, Judge Purple recommended that the defendant be accepted by the Narcotics Addiction and Control Commission for rehabilitation. In the event the commission fails to accept Murray, he will serve a one year sentence in the County Jail. Dorothy I. Alshiemer 47, of Avoca, who previously entered a plea of guilty to a charge of third degree burglary, was sentenced to serve 60 days in the County Jail. Charged in connection with theft of furniture from a home in the Prattsburg area, Mrs. Alshirmer given credit for time already served. She was represented by Attorney Karl Anderson of Howard. Charles English and Marion Doyle, both of Painted Post, were both placed on probation for three years to the county on charges of violation of the Social Services Law. Both were accused of accepting public assistance benefits when not entitled to do so. Each was also fined $250 and told to make restitution to the County Social Services Department in the amount of aid received. English was directed to repay $1,082.55 and the woman to repay $757.50. John A. Matacle, 23, of Canisteo RFD 1, a former Hornell man, was placed on probation for three years on a charge of third degree assault. Indicted for second degree assault as the result of an incident at a Hornell bar earlier this year, Matacle pleaded guilty to the reduced charge. In addition to probation, he was directed to make restitution to the victim of the assault, a Jamestown man, for expenses incurred by him. Attorney Holbrook represented Matacle and stressed to the court that he should be given probation. Lynn D. Nichols, 25, of Campbell RFD 2, represented by Attorney Yorie, was also handed a sentence of three years probation on a charge of second degree criminal trespass. In sentencing Nichols, Judge Purple took into consideration what he termed a previous good record and informed the defendant, "You had you break, use better judgment.'' Sentencing of Darrell Pratt, 26, of Painted Post on a charge of misappropriation of property was postponed until a later date at Bath. Pratt admitted the charge two weeks ago in satisfaction of charges of grand larceny and violation of the Social Services Law. Area Hospital notes ST.

HORNELL — Members of the Hornell Desperado Debs Baton and Drum Corps left Thursday for the 24th annual National Tobacco Festival in Richmond, Va. The "Debs" and the Saugerties High School Marching Band were this year's New York State representatives to the week long festival in Virginia. Accompanied by their parents, the 105-membered baton and drum corps arrived in Richmond where they prepared to present a 15-minute halftime show Thursday evening for the American Basketball Association's Virginia Squires Basketball game. Friday, the "Debs" marched from the Capitol Square with the Ferks String Band of Philadelphia, Pa., to the Sixth Street Mall where both groups presented 15-minute shows. Friday night, the corps participated in the Grand Illuminated Parade telecast throughout Virginia, South Carolina and Kentucky. The "Debs" were one of 25 groups asked to participate in the parade. The "Debs" went sightseeing in the Washington, D.C. area on Saturday and spent the night in Maryland. They will return to Hornell this afternoon. The Desperado Debs, a self- supporting non profit organization, made the trip through money-raising projects and donations. Mrs. Linda Castrovillo is the corps director and twirling instructor. Jack Mahoney, Ray McDermott, and Gene Castrovillo are color guard instructors. Percussion instructor is Robert Hammer. Justice dismisses drunk driving case Auto kills deer ANGELICA — A deer was struck and killed Friday as it ran across Route 19 in the Town of Angelica. Allegany County State Police report that a car driven by A.F. Eisenhaner Jr., 31, of 325 N. Pleasant Parkway, Cheektowaga, struck the deer while traveling south on Route 19. State Police said the deer ran from the east shoulder of the road. BELFAST — Charges of driving while intoxicated against Ralph L. Haxton, 24, of 428 Scott Ave., Wellsville, were dismissed by Belfast Justice Domenic Curcio Thursday. Justice Curcio said that Mr. Haxton's breathalyzer test registered .05 and current rules require a registration of .12 for the charge of DWI. The driving while impaired charge requires a reading of .08. Mr. Haxton was fined $10 for a second charge of having an unsafe tire. Mr. Haxton was charged following an accident Friday, Oct. 13, when his auto struck and killed Diann J. Gibney, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Gibney of 138 S. Main St., Belfast. State police reported that Mr. Haxton was driving south on Route 19 at 11:15 p.m. and started to pass another southbound vehicle. Miss Gibney was walking in the northbound lane when she was struck by the car, troopers said. She was pronounced dead on arrival at Cuba Memorial Hospital and Dr. Stephen Rose, county coroner, listed the cause of death as a fractured neck. Effective Jan. 1, 1973, the breathalyzer tests must register .10 for a charge of driving while intoxicated and between .07 to .10 for the charge of driving while impaired. When asked about other charges, Justice Curcio stated that a justice can only make decisions on charges brought before him. The charge of drunken driving was dismissed because it was below the limits, he said. Mr. Haxton told the judge that the girl was walking in the road, and that he did not see her in time.
