ALBION – Four people were sentenced in Orleans County Court today and all received some incarceration.
Luis Ramos-Perez, 30, received the longest sentence of 1 1/3 to 4 years in state prison. He was charged with DWI and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle after being stopped on Dec. 14 in Albion. He registered a BAC of 0.15 percent, about double the legal limit. He has two prior charged for driving under the influence or intoxicated.
He was recently released from prison when he was arrested again for another DWI.
Ramos-Perez apologized in court. He spoke through an interpreter.
“I just want to say I feel bad for I did,” he said. “I do accept that I have problems with alcohol.”
Ramos-Perez has family in the area, including children.
County Court Judge Sanford Church said Ramos-Perez has proven to be a danger to other people on the road. The judge also revoked the driver’s license for Ramos-Perez for a year.
• Michael J. Miller II, 44, of Medina was sentenced to six months in the county jail and five years of probation.
He was charged on Sept. 22 on Townline Road in Yates and registered a .24 BAC, which is three times the legal limit. This is his third DWI offense and all have been with a BAC over .20 percent, the judge said.
“I apologize for the decisions I made that night,” Miller said.
His attorney, Neil Gunther, asked for only probation or weekends in jail. But Judge Church said Miller has shown he is a danger to the community by driving when he is highly impaired.
• A Batavia man was sentenced to two months of weekends in jail plus five years of probation.
Dominic Bennett, 27, previously pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the third degree. He was in a one-car accident on Oct. 27 on Route 31 in Albion, and was taken by Mercy Flight to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester. He has recovered from his injuries.
• Spencer Freeman, 20, of Albion also was sentenced to two months of weekends in jail and five years of probation.
He previously pleaded guilty to criminal possession of stolen property in the fourth degree and criminal possession of stolen property in the seventh degree.
He admitted to having about $1,500 worth of stolen items on Nov. 13, including a Play Station, an Alexa, X-Box and flat-screen television. Freeman also said he had Xanax bars, which are a controlled substance.
The weekends in jail will allow him to continue his full-time job.
