Three charged under Leandra's Law

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal —

Two city people and a Wilson man are facing Leandra's Law charges after being arrested recently by the Niagara County Sheriff's Office and Lockport City Police.

Leandra's Law, or the Child Passenger Protection Act, is a New York state law making it an automatic felony for a first offense of driving drunk with a person age 15 or younger inside the vehicle.

Lockport Police said William Robinson, Jr., 35, 117 High St., failed to signal when he made a turn at 2:10 p.m. Friday on John Street. Officers found there was an outstanding warrant for Robinson's arrest, so he was taken into custody without incident.

But while speaking with Robinson, police determined he was drunk. Also, there were two passengers in his vehicle, a 2-year-old and a 14-year-old.

So, Robinson was charged with driving while intoxicated, felony aggravated driving while intoxicated and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Earlier that day, a city woman was charged after the vehicle she drove was involved in a rollover crash at Massachusetts and LeVan avenues. City firefighters got Misty Brabon, 33, 50 Utica St., and three children, ages 4, 10 and 14, out of the vehicle, which flipped onto its side.

Brabon was charged with driving while intoxicated, felony aggravated driving while intoxicated and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child. She and two of the three children reportedly suffered minor injuries.

Brabon was charged with driving while intoxicated, felony aggravated driving while intoxicated and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child. She was also charged with speeding and improper lane use.

In Wilson, David A. Milczarski, 31, 5199 Wilson-Burt Road, was charged Friday with driving while intoxicated, endangering the welfare of a child, driving on the shoulder, failure to keep right, resisting arrest, second-degree obstruction of governmental administration and aggravated driving while intoxicated with a child passenger under the age of 16.
