Sept. 16 - Justice Richard Nissen presiding
• The case of Nelson Gouge, 36, of Hudson St. Warrensburg, who is facing a first degree Criminal Contempt charge, a felony, was transferred to Warren County Court. In this case, based on an Aug. 19 incident, Gouge is also facing charges of third-degree Assault and Criminal Mischief, both Misdemeanors.
Police said Gouge violated an Order of Protection by not only having contact with a woman, but striking her in the eye, slapping her and pulling her hair, causing her to fall to the floor. Also, police said, he turned on her cordless phone and hid it so she couldn't place a phone call from the house.
• Joyce Thyrring, 53 of 51 Orton Drive, Warrensburg, was arraigned on a charge of second-degree Harassment, a violation. Police said she repeatedly stood outside her neighbor's house at 45 Orton Drive, watching the family's activities and taking flash photographs of both the residence and photographs of vehicles of visiting friends. She was arrested, police said, after she stood in front of the house and stared at the house for an extended period of time. Nissen issued an Order of Protection barring Thyrring from bothering the neighbor, and the case was adjourned to Sept. 30.
• In a plea bargain, Clyde Boland, 42, of Lake Ave. Warrensburg pled Guilty to Driving While Ability Impaired, based on an Aug. 8 incident. He had originally been charged with Misdemeanor DWI, Resisting arrest and Unsafe Backing. Boland was sentenced to pay $600 in fines and surcharges - and a conditional discharge - but his license was suspended for 90 days.
• In another plea bargain, Nicholas Myers, 24, of Luzerne pled Guilty to Driving While Ability Impaired, based on an Aug. 8 incident. Two weeks ago, Myers was in court, but he was stood up by his attorney. Myers was sentenced to pay $600 in fines and surcharges, and a conditional discharge, but his license was suspended for 90 days.
