Albion resident arraigned after Clarendon crash

ALBION A Ridgeway resident could spend up to a year in jail after he pleaded guilty in Orleans County Court to possessing more than 2 ounces of marijuana.

Jacob J. Callara, 51, of 3643 Horan Rd., apartment 2, was charged last February after police seized more than 300 marijuana plants. Two other men were arrested in the raid.

Callara has a light criminal history, Orleans County District Attorney Joe Cardone said on Monday after Callara pleaded guilty to a fourth-degree charge of marijuana possession.

Callara will be sentenced on Jan. 6. He could spend up to a year in jail and could be on Probation for three years.

In another case on Monday, Orleans County Court Judge James Punch set $25,000 bail for Brandon Kirby, 26, of Albion. He faces numerous charges after a crash on Oct. 23 in Clarendon when he allegedly crossed Mansfield Road, onto private property and struck a building owned by Acme Powerwashing Inc., of Holley.

Kirby was charged with Aggravated Unlicensed Operation 2nd Degree, Operating a Vehicle Without an Ignition Inter-Lock Device, Leaving the Scene of a Property Damage Incident, and Failure to Stop for a Stop Sign.

He was arraigned in county court on Monday for violating his probation. He will be represented by the public defender.
