A Schroon woman has been arrested on several charges for allegedly hitting a pedestrian on Route 9 and driving off, according to state police.
Allison A. Gregson, 22, of Route 74 was charged with leaving the scene of a personal injury accident and making a false written statement in connection with the July 26 accident, police said.
She is accused of hitting a man who was waiting along Route 9 near Word of Life shortly after 8 p.m., police said. He was not in a crosswalk.
The victim, whose name was not released, suffered facial, arm and leg injuries that were not serious, according to police. He was treated at Moses Ludington Hospital and released.
The vehicle that hit him initially stopped nearby, and a witness got the license plate number before the driver left the scene, police said.
Police tracked the vehicle to Gregson and also had a witness identify her as the driver.
Gregson was also charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, a non-criminal violation, at the time of her arrest Aug. 10.
Gregson was arraigned and sent to Essex County Jail for lack of bail, but has since posted bail.
Ti man guilty
A 42-year-old Ticonderoga man was convicted Aug. 12 repeatedly sexually abusing a 6-year-old girl in 2009.
Richard Brown was found guilty of five felony counts of first-degree sexual abuse, Essex County District Attorney Kristy Sprague announced in a press release. The crimes happened on two separate occasions.
Brown will be sentenced Sept. 22.
He faces a maximum term of 14 years in prison along with a period of post-release supervision.
The state's highest court has rejected a Putnam woman’s appeal of her conviction for providing alcohol to under-age drinkers hours before a car crash that killed two young people.
The decision by the state Court of Appeals resulted in Kellie St. Andrews surrendering herself Aug. 11 to serve the remainder of a 60-day sentence in Washington County Jail.
St. Andrews was found guilty of unlawfully dealing with a child and endangering the welfare of a child, both misdemeanors, for allowing her 17-year-old son to host an April 2008 under-age drinking party. The party ended with the son, Dustin St. Andrews, driving a speeding car off Route 22 in Putnam, killing two 16-year-old girls who were in the car with him.
Kellie St. Andrews, 42, had sought to have the Court of Appeals hear her case after the Appellate Division of state Supreme Court denied her first appeal in March. The Appellate Division threw out a misdemeanor conviction against her husband, Jimmy Joe St. Andrews.
The Court of Appeals offered no written explanation for its decision.
With credit for time served and for good behavior, Kellie St. Andrews could be released from jail after serving 33 additional days.
She was also sentenced to three years on probation and was directed to perform 100 hours of community service.
Dustin St. Andrews is serving a 2 1/2- to 7 1/2-year state prison sentence and will be eligible for parole in December 2012.
