On November 8 police in Seneca Falls apprehended 31-year-old Jonshay J. Ewing following a disturbance at a local residence.


During the incident, which occurred at approximately 11:53 p.m., authorities found Ewing highly intoxicated, rendering her incapable of adequately caring for her child.

The investigation further revealed that Ewing was breaching a Monroe County issued order of protection.

The situation escalated when Ewing, while in police custody, attempted to flee by attempting to remove one of her handcuffs. She faces multiple charges, including criminal contempt in the first degree, a class E felony, and endangering the welfare of a child, a class A misdemeanor.

Additionally, Ewing has been charged with obstructing governmental administration and attempted escape, both class A misdemeanors. She is scheduled to appear in the Town of Seneca Falls Court at a later date. In response to the events, an order of protection has been petitioned for the victim.
