JOHNSTOWN - A trial began Wednesday in Fulton County Court for a Gloversville woman facing a felony count of driving while intoxicated.

Robin A. Curtin, 54, of Saratoga Boulevard, is on trial this week before County Court Judge Polly A. Hoye.

She is being defended by attorney Kevin L. O'Brien of Albany.

Fulton County Assistant District Attorney Kelli P. McCoski is appearing for the prosecution.

Curtin was indicted March 5 by a county grand jury on one felony DWI count.

She was arrested at 6 p.m., Jan. 13, by state police.

Troopers said her vehicle veered into the opposite lane on Route 29A and the car hit a state Department of Transportation snowplow driven by Eric Bartlett, 47, of Johnstown.

Curtin was charged with felony DWI because she had a previous conviction within the past 10 years.

She also was charged with refusal to take a breath test and failure to keep right on a two-lane road

Curtin suffered minor bleeding to her head and was taken by the Ambulance Service of Fulton County to Nathan Littauer Hospital, where she was treated and released.
