Bail set at $100K for Medina man with 4th DWI

ALBION – A Brockport woman admitted in Orleans County Court today that she sold cocaine for $100 to an undercover officer on May 29, 2013.

Cynthia Winkelman, 46, of Skyline Circle pleaded guilty today to criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree. She has no prior criminal record. Winkelman could face up to a year in the county jail when she is sentenced on Feb. 2.

Also in county court today:

Judge James Punch set bail at $100,000 for Norman Bloom Sr. of Medina. He was charged with driving while intoxicated on Saturday. It was his fourth DWI, District Attorney Joe Cardone said.

Bloom, 48, of West Center Street has three prior felonies, two prior misdemeanors and a failure to appear at court. He is currently in the county jail.

He is scheduled to appear in Shelby Town Court on Dec. 4.

Judge Punch accepted Joseph Ahue, 25, into the Drug Court program. Ahue of McKinistry Street in Albion pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fourth degree and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree.

If he completes Drug Court, the CPCS in the 4th degree charge will be dismissed. The CPCS in the 7th degree would remain, but Punch said Ahue would be spared jail if he completes Drug Court.

Ahue on Aug. 1 was arrested charged after a vehicle driven by his friend was pulled over. Ahue had 0.17 ounce of oxycodone in his pocket, Cardone said.
