Schroon mother faces charge

A Schroon Lake woman was arrested Nov. 7 on a felony charge of aggravated driving while intoxicated after she was found driving drunk with two children in a car, police said.

Donna M. Doyle-Wilson, 45, was arrested after a 5:12 p.m. traffic stop on Route 9, according to state police.

Police said she had two children, ages 10 and 15, in the vehicle, and was found to have a blood-alcohol content of 0.18 percent, more than double the 0.08 percent threshold for DWI.

Police records show that Doyle-Wilson was charged with felony aggravated DWI and misdemeanor aggravated DWI and released pending prosecution in Schroon town court.

A law enacted earlier this year makes it a felony to drive drunk with a child in the vehicle.

Ti man charged

Police arrested a Ticonderoga man on several charges related to burglary Nov. 2.

The Ticonderoga Police Department arrested Steven E. Cobb, 29, and charged him with second-degree attempted burglary and third-degree criminal mischief, both felonies.

They also charged him with possession of burglary tools, a misdemeanor.

Justice James O'Bryan arraigned Cobb in the Town of Ticonderoga Court and remanded him to Essex County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond.

Welfare fraud

Lawrence Shufelt, age 39, and Jennifer Ringrose, age 35, both of Ticonderoga, were arraigned Nov. 4 before Elizabethtown Town Justice William Garrison.

They were both charged with offering a false instrument for filing first degree, a class E felony and welfare fraud fifth degree, a class A misdemeanor.

It is alleged they defrauded the Essex County day care program of $494 by submitting vouchers for payment for day care hours that they were not entitled to.

With the consent of the district attorney's office they pleaded guilty to welfare fraud fifth degree in satisfaction of all charges. The pair was sentenced to conditional discharges and will make restitution.
