Pleasantville Court: Jail Time for 2006 DWI Defendant

All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty. All ages represent the date of arrest.

Here's a look at what happened during Pleasantville Court's November 13 criminal session.

False Report Defendant Appears

Wasim Ali, the man accused of falsely reporting an armed robbery at Pleasant Auto Service on September 4, appeared in court Tuesday after he was reportedly hospitalized after being struck by a car.

The case was adjourned until December 11.

DWI Defendant Sentenced

Aldrin Alonzo, a village resident accused of driving while intoxicated on June 2, 2006, appeared before Village Justice John Curley Tuesday in handcuffs.

Alonzo, who was 19 at the time of his initial arrest, was arrested this September in Yorktown after allegedly speeding and driving without a license.

In Pleasantville, the 2006 charges include being charged with a previous DWI, leaving the scene of an accident, driving without a license and operating a vehicle without insurance.

The assistant district district attorney offered Alonzo a plea to a misdemeanor DWI charge along with a six-month jail sentence. A condition of the plea is a one-year conditional discharge following his release. His driver's license will also be revoked for a period of time and he must complete two mandated drinking while driving programs. He was also charged a $190 surcharge.

Westchester County Jail records indicate Alonzo also has an immigration hold.

Alzono, through a translator and his attorney, accepted the plea. He is due to be released on Jan. 1, 2013.
