Man headed to prison for DWIs

Winney

JOHNSTOWN — A Broadalbin man convicted of two felony driving offenses in Fulton County Court is headed to state prison for one to three years.

That sentence was meted out to Adam J. Winney, 27, of 7387 Fishhouse Road, on May 3 by County Court Judge Polly A. Hoye.

In addition, Winney was sentenced as part of a plea arrangement to a $500 fine, his driver’s license was revoked, and he must install an ignition interlock device on his vehicle.

The sentence was based on the defendant’s March 5 guilty plea before Hoye to felony counts of first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation and driving while intoxicated.

Winney was arrested at 3:50 a.m. Oct. 24 by Gloversville police. He was charged with felony driving while intoxicated, aggravated unlicensed operation, driving without an interlock device, unlawful possession of marijuana, and several traffic infractions by city police.

While on patrol, officers conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for traffic violations on Broad Street. Police conducted a field sobriety test on the driver, Winney, after smelling an alcoholic beverage coming from him that yielded positive results for driving while under the influence of alcohol, police said.

In other recent County Court action, Alex J. Robles-Flores, 27, of Homestead Drive, Gloversville, was sentenced May 3 by Hoye to 1 1/2 to three years in state prison as a second felony offender.

On March 11, he pleaded guilty before Hoye to one felony count of aggravated family offense, as part of a plea arrangement. An order of protection was also issued.

Robles-Flores was arrested Jan. 17, but details of his case were unavailable.
