Bail set at $500K for Medina man accused of Dec. 30 assault

By Tom Rivers, Editor Posted 3 January 2017 at 5:57 pm

ALBION – A Medina man with a lengthy criminal record had bail set at $500,000 cash or bond today by Orleans County Court Judge James Punch.

Robert A. Beedham Sr., 54, faces first-degree assault charges after he allegedly used a knife to seriously injure a person on Dec. 30 in Medina.

Beedham, a resident of 12 East Center St., has three prior felonies and numerous misdemeanors, District Attorney Joe Cardone told Judge Punch today.

The judge listed off some of the prior crimes – assault, menacing, criminal contempt, burglaries, larcenies, criminal mischief, resisting arrest, and injuring a person while confined in a correctional facility.

“I am asking for extremely high bail,” Cardone told Punch during the bail application hearing. Beedham had already been arraigned in Ridgeway Town Court but Punch set the bail.

Beedham’s attorney Nathan Pace said Beedham has always made his court appearances in the past. Pace asked for “reasonable bail.”
