A verdict could come by July 15 in the DWI case of former Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb. The assemblyman who did not seek re-election after being involved in a one-car accident near his home in Ontario County was cited for driving while intoxicated.
The case has involved several delays, which were brought on by the pandemic.
This week witnesses provided testimony. Kolb’s defense attorney attempted to cast doubt on the procedures for maintaining the DataMaster DMT breathalyzer.
Yates County District Attorney Todd Casella, who is serving as special prosecutor said the day went about as expected.
“You don’t prepare with the witness; you don’t know what they’ll say,” Casella told the Daily Messenger.
