Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty reports the arrest of a Monroe County resident on felony DWI and Felony AUO charges following an investigation by the Sheriff’s Office.
On June 11th, 2022 at approximately 12:45 am, Deputy Rick Gage was in the Village of Livonia on an unrelated investigation, when he was approached by an operator on a motorcycle looking for a local establishment.
The operator of the motorcycle was identified as Daniel P. Ingraham, age 53 from Rochester. During the encounter, the Deputy Sheriff suspected that Ingraham was under the influence of alcohol. The Deputy Sheriff did conduct a DWI investigation which included the performance of standardized field sobriety tests. At the conclusion of the roadside investigation, Ingraham was taken into custody for DWI.
Ingraham was then transported to the Sheriff’s Office Headquarters in Geneseo, where he was offered a breathalyzer to determine his blood alcohol content (BAC). Deputy Robert Brooks did administer the test which revealed that Ingraham had a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .09%.
A records check revealed that Ingraham had two previous DWI related convictions, one in 2016 and the other in 2018, making this arrest a Felony. The check also revealed that Ingraham’s driving privileges in NYS had been revoked due to previous DWI related offenses, also a Felony.
Ingraham was arrested and charged with felony Driving While Intoxicated, felony Aggravated Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle in the 1st Degree, as well as additional violations of the NYS Vehicle & Traffic Law.
Ingraham was transported and turned over to Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing and pre-arraignment detention. The District Attorney’s Office was contacted in regards to bail due to the felony level charges. It was recommended that Ingraham be held without the possibility of bail, due to having seven previous Felony convictions.
Ingraham was later arraigned at the Livingston County Centralized Arraignment Part (LC-CAP) at the Livingston County Jail before Justice Love. The Judge did remand Ingraham to the custody of the Sheriff without bail.
The Livingston County Public Defender’s Office was present and represented Ingraham at the court arraignment for his defense. The Livingston County District Attorney’s Office was notified but did not appear to represent the people.
