Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty reports the arrest of a Dansville NY resident on felony charges following an investigation.
On September 4, 2021 at approximately 11:25 am, Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a residence on Parkwood Lane in the Town of Livonia for the report of a larceny. The caller told Deputies that she had numerous credit cards and a cell phone stolen from her. It is alleged through the investigation that Stacy M. Akers, age 54, used one of the stolen credit cards at a business in the Town of North Dansville on September 1, 2021. On September 16, 2021 Sheriff’s Investigator Josh Monster arrested and charged Akers with felony Criminal Possession
of Stolen Property in the Fourth Degree and Petit Larceny.
Akers was transported and turned over to Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing and prearraignment detention. The District Attorney’s Office was contacted in regards to bail due to the felony level charges. It was recommended that Akers be held without the possibility of bail due to her having two (2) previous felony convictions.
Akers was later arraigned at the Livingston County Centralized Arraignment Part (LC-CAP) at the Livingston County Jail before Town of Caledonia Justice Mark Riggi. The Judge did remand Akers to the custody of the Sheriff without the possibility of bail to be held for further court proceedings.
The Livingston County Public Defender’s Office was present and represented Akers at the court arraignment for her defense. The Livingston County District Attorney’s Office was notified but did not appear to represent the people. Akers later appeared in Livingston County Court on September 17th before County Court Judge Kevin Van Allen. The Judge did release Akers on her own recognizance and Deputies set her free.
Assisting with the investigation was Sergeant Scott Patterson, Deputy Menzo Peck, Deputy Cheyenne Masiello, Deputy Kevin Barrett of the Patrol Division. Also assisting with the investigation was the Dansville Police Department.
