A former Horseheads Village Trustee was sentenced in Yates County Court for a DWI crash that injured several people. Mark Cronin received six months in jail, five years of probation, a $1,000 fine, and a one-year license suspension, according to the Yates County District Attorney’s Office.

Cronin pleaded guilty to vehicular assault and DWI in April. The charges stemmed from a July 4, 2023, incident where Cronin, driving under the influence, ran a stop sign and hit a vehicle carrying two adults and six children, severely injuring five of them.

Following the indictment, Cronin was removed from his trustee position. In addition to his sentence, he must attend a victim’s impact panel, an impaired driver program, install an ignition interlock device, and provide a DNA sample.
