Former legislator has case adjourned to finalize arrangements with attorney

By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - A former Oneida County Legislator who was on the run for four years was back in County Court in Utica on Tuesday, this time with his attorney.

Authorities say Revere fled the area after getting arrested for a fifth DWI back in 2008. Revere refused to be extradited from the state of Georgia, so NYS Governor Andrew Cuomo had to get involved and sign what is known as a "Governor's Warrant" to make it happen.

Revere, 47, told Oneida County Court Judge Barry Donalty on Monday morning that he had been living in Canton, Georgia when the U.S. Marshall's Office finally caught up with him last week.

As an Oneida County Legislator from 1998 to 1999, Revere represented people living in New Hartford, Paris and Bridgewater.

On Monday, Revere's attorney, who is from Syracuse, was not able to be in court, so Judge Donalty rescheduled the proceedings until Tuesday morning.

Revere's case was adjourned until next week so that he could finalize arrangements with his legal representation.
