ALBION – A Murray resident with multiple prior DWIs was arraigned for felony driving while intoxicated, aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the first degree and aggravated DWI (registering 0.18 percent).

Kevin A. Truesdell, 39, of Hurd Road appeared Monday before Orleans County Court Judge James Punch, who set bail at $20,000.

District Attorney Joe Cardone said Truesdell has seven prior alcohol-related offenses, including arrests in Texas, South Carolina and New York.

He also was recently arrested for criminal mischief and trespass in Murray.

“I’m very concerned about the extensive out-of-state record as well as the in-state record,” Punch said.

In other cases on Monday:

• The judge set bail at $100,000 for Bryan M. Beach, 33, who has been charged with criminal contempt for violating an order of protection.

Beach appeared before Judge Punch on a bail application hearing. His case will continue to be handled in the Albion Town Court. Because Beach has at least two prior felonies, his bail was set at County Court.

“You have a very, very, very long and extensive criminal history,” Punch told Beach.

• Kevin Lampman, who is on probation from Genesee County, had his bail set at $50,000 for violating probation.

• A Medina teen was offered a plea deal where he would serve a maximum of 4 years in state prison for second-degree assault.

Lucas Porter, 17, was initially charged with first-degree assault, which would carry a maximum of 25 years in state prison.

Porter allegedly stabbed a Buffalo man at a house party on Nov. 6 in Ridgeway, puncturing his lung and just missing his heart.

The district attorney offered a plea deal where Porter could plead guilty to second-degree assault, which carries a maximum of seven years in prison but would instead be capped at 4 years as part of the plea deal. Porter has until April 10 to consider the offer.
