LIVINGSTON COUNTY — A Nunda woman, who was arrested for DWI after New York State Police observed her driving her vehicle while missing a car tire, made a court appearance where it was revealed that since her arrest she has violated terms of her release.
Roxanne A. Tallman, 57, was found driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .21 and an open container of alcohol within her vehicle. Ms. Tallman was granted pre-trial release but was rearrested following two sobriety violations.
Tallman appeared before Judge Robert B. Wiggins with her attorney Kevin Van Allen of the law firm Cannon and Van Allen. ADA Josh Tonra represented the County. Tallman was arraigned by Judge Wiggins after she waived her right to a grand jury indictment.
Van Allen expressed his client’s desire to enter into a treatment program as soon as possible, thus making her release a necessity. The defendant was granted bail of $10,000 cash bond, which will be conditioned upon use of an electronic home monitor (EHM) in order to ensure continued sobriety.
The case is currently scheduled for an April 9th pre-trial conference.
