ALBION – Two Holley area residents were sentenced today to four months of weekends in jail, five years Probation and $2,000 fines.

Daniel Weatherbee, 32, of 16562 Route 31, Holley, was sentenced for his second charge of driving while intoxicated. He was arrested for DWI on May 11 after he was stopped on North Main Street in Holley. He was also charged with DWI on Jan. 25, 2011 in Hamlin.

Weatherbee’s Blood Alcohol Content was 0.18 when he was charged by Holley police on May 11. Weatherbee’s attorney Michael Ranzenhofer told the court that Weatherbee has a full-time job and a daughter.

“He is a young man who has made mistakes, but he has a future,” Ranzenhofer told County Court Judge James Punch during sentencing.

Punch also revoked Weatherbee’s license for a year and imposed a $325 court surcharge.

“You’re a mess,” Punch told the Holley resident. “You’ve allowed alcohol to steer you in the wrong direction for a lot of years.”

A Clarendon resident also was sentenced to weekends in jail and Probation. David T. Costrino, 51, was charged in February with one count of second-degree criminal possession of marijuana. State police led a raid at Costrino’s house at 15557 Brown School House Rd., and discovered he was growing marijuana.

Costrino in court apologized for the crime. He said the weekend sentence will allow him to continue working full-time so he can support his family.

“I’m very sorry your honor for what I’ve done,” Costrino said.
