Bonadonna was transported and turned over to Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing and pre arraignment detention as the offenses did qualify for pre-arraignment detention under the NYS Justice Reform Act. The District Attorney’s Office was contacted in regards to bail due to the felony level charges. It was recommended that Bonadonna be held without the possibility of bail due to him having two (2) previous felony convictions.
