Blainey parole hearing adjourned until January

By WKTV News

ORISKANY, N.Y. (WKTV) - The parole hearing for a convicted serial rapist who evaded authorities has been postponed until after the new year.

Robert Blainey was scheduled to go before an administrative law judge Monday at the Oneida County Jail, where he's currently being held on that parole violation.

The hearing was expected to involve Blainey, his attorney, the judge and a parole revocation specialist.

If found guilty of violating his parole, the judge may have placed a hold on Blainey, placing back in jail for a certain period of time, and paving the way for authorities to move forward with the murder case of Davis Motel owner Linda Turner.

Blainey is suspected of her murder and was found driving her car in Pennsylvania days after her death. He has yet to be formally charged.

According to the New York State Department of Parole, the hearing was adjourned until January 9. A reason for the adjournment was not given.
