UTICA, N.Y. – The attorney for Tom Giruzzi says his client was denied access to legal counsel before he was given a blood test when he was arrested in March. Motions were filed in in Utica City Court Wednesday, including suppression of evidence.
Giruzzi, the former Oneida County STOP DWI coordinator, was arrested after a sheriff’s deputy allegedly found cocaine in his car during a traffic stop in March. He was fired as the county's STOP DWI coordinator following the arrest.
His next court date is scheduled for Nov. 25.
