RENSSELAERVILLE — A single-car crash in Rensselaerville early Sunday morning has left one Middleburgh young woman dead and another injured, according to a report from the Albany County Sheriff’s Office.

Jury trials for DWI are not rare in Guilderland, according to Clerk to the Justices Jennifer Stephens.

BETHLEHEM — After a jury trial, Lina Michaels, 32, of Delmar, was found guilty of driving while intoxicated per se, a felony, and driving while ability impaired, a misdemeanor.

The trial was presided over by Debra J. Young in Albany County Court on March 9.

BETHLEHEM — Kevin Popp of Delmar was sentenced Tuesday to one-and-a-third to four years in State Prison before Judge Stephen W. Herrick in Albany County Court. On Sept. 27, Popp had pleaded guilty to one count of driving while intoxicated, a felony.

Four years after crashing, drunk, into an exit-ramp pole, Sara J. Herrero was found guilty in a Guilderland Town Court bench trial.

The arrest of a 30-year-old man from Voorheesville for drunk driving after a one-car accident on the Northway led to minor injury to the investigating State Trooper.  

A drunk-driving conviction in the last decade means a steeper penalty for the 30-year-old.

GUILDERLAND — Jeffrey Mark Cascini, 40, of 1026 O’Brien Ave., Schenectady, was arrested on Mar. 11 by Guilderland Police for attempted burglary and felony DWI, driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol.  

Scott Sheak, 41, of Berne, pleaded guilty to all charges on Wednesday in Albany County’s first conviction under Vince’s Law.

NEW SCOTLAND — A drunk driver caused a head-on crash Saturday before striking a pole in Feura Bush, police say; the driver nearly collided with a police car as he recklessly passed cars near the Bethlehem athletic compound on Route 32.
