Under New Law, All Suspects

May Be Held At County Jail

ALBANY – A bill allowing the Otsego County jail to be used as a pre-arraignment holding area for all local courts has been signed into law by Governor Cuomo, the bill’s sponsor, state Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, announced yesterday.

“The legislation will lead to more efficient and cost-effective judicial proceedings in Otsego County,” said Seward.  “A number of other counties throughout the state have instituted similar policies, and it makes sense for Otsego County to do the same.”
