ALBION – A Livingston County woman was arraigned in Orleans County Court this afternoon for the first of her four driving while intoxicated arrests – all in the past three months.

Sharon Davis, 54, of Geneseo was arrested on April 21 in Barre and registered a 0.26 percent Blood Alcohol Content.

She was arrested for DWI in Batavia on May 15, and then on June 24 in Geneseo, and a day later in Lakeville, Livingston County.

The judges set bail at $5,000 each in Batavia, and the two courts in Livingston County.

James Punch, Orleans County Court judge, this afternoon set bail at $20,000.

“I’m very concerned about the set of circumstances,” Punch said in setting bail for Davis.

She appeared in court today wearing the inmate-issued clothing from the Livingston County Jail.

District Attorney Joe Cardone said Davis has a prior DWI felony in Monroe County in 2008.

Davis’s attorney, Kevin McKain, said she doesn’t have a prior criminal history outside of the “drinking-related offenses.”

She is due back in Orleans County Court on July 26 for a conference.
