DWI offense nets weekends in jail

JOHNSTOWN — A city man is headed to jail after pleading guilty recently in Fulton County Court to two driving offenses.

Trey A. Vaughn, 26, of 411 N. Market St., pleaded guilty Oct. 8 before County Court Judge Polly A. Hoye to first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation and misdemeanor driving while intoxicated, as part of a plea arrangement.

The defendant will be sentenced at a later date, expected to receive four weekends in the Fulton County Correctional Facility, five years probation, a $1,000 fine, driver’s license revocation, and he must attach an ignition interlock device to his vehicle.

Vaughn was arrested at 10:47 p.m. March 22 by Gloversville police. He was charged with DWI, first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, and other vehicle and traffic violations.

Officers conducted a stop on a vehicle driven by Vaughn on South Main Street in Gloversville for traffic violations. After smelling the scent of an alcoholic beverage coming from Vaughn, police conducted a field sobriety test that was positive for driving under the influence of alcohol.

In other recent County Court action:

∫ Jason Smrtic, 36, of Division Street, Gloversville, pleaded guilty Oct. 10 before Hoye to third-degree criminal mischief, as part of a plea arrangement.

He will be sentenced later to 1 1/2 to three years in state prison, as a second felony offender. He may also have to make restitution, if any.

Smrtic was arrested Sept. 3.

∫ Luis Rosa, 44, of Pearl Street, Gloversville, pleaded guilty Oct. 8 before Hoye to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, as part of a plea arrangement.

Sentencing was adjourned until a later date, but Rosa is expected to be sentenced later to two years in state prison as a second felony offender. He is also slated to receive 1 1/2 years post-release supervision.

Rosa was arrested April 15.
