ALBION – A Medina man was sentenced to 364 days in the Orleans County Jail for driving while intoxicated and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

Michael R. Coffey, 75, was stopped by State Police in Carlton on Sept. 10, 2021. He has seven prior alcohol-related offenses, the district attorney’s office said.

Judge Sanford Church sentenced Coffey last week to the maximum under a plea agreement.

In another case, Jason Raiser, 42, of Knowlesville was arraigned for one count each of first-degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child.

He allegedly had inappropriate contact with a female from 2018 to 2021, beginning when the girl was 9. He has posted $5,000 bail. Judge Church issued an order of protection for the girl.
