Brasher Iron Works woman’s sentence includes no more Nadeau’s


MASSENA - A Brasher Iron Works woman will be required to stay out of the Hotel Nadeau as part of her sentence for a a trespassing conviction.

Acting Massena Village Justice James M. Crandall fined Janelle E. Mossow (Charland), 25, of 110 Smith Road, Brasher Iron Works, $250 and a $125 for a trespassing conviction and was placed under a one-year conditonal discharge with stipulations she continue with a treatment program and stay out of the bar.

Village police had charged Mossowwith third-degree criminal trespass, resisting arrest and fourth-degree criminal mischief in the early morning hours of Sept. 2.

Mossow had reportedly been banned from Nadeau’s earlier in the evening by a bar owner but returned to the bar at approximately 1:30 a.m.. She reportedly rejected several requests by bar employees and later police to leave Nadeau’s after she returned to the bar and attempted to initiate a fight with a female bartender.

She then refused to place her hands in front of her to be handcuffed when she was being placed under arrest and started to pull away from the police officer.

While handcuffed and chained to the booking bench, Mossow reportedly used the cuffs to scratch the letter J in the bench.

In other recent court action before Judge Crandall:

■ Jordan P. Fregoe, 19, of 114 Woodlawn Ave., Massena, had an unlawful possession of marijuana case returned to the court calendar after he faild to complete the 20 hours of community service that was a stipulation of the adjournment in contemplation of dismissal.

He pleaded guilty to the violation and was fined $50 and a $125 surcharge.

■ Tasha L. Square, 27, of 1165 St. Regis Road, Hogansburg, was fined $100 and a $125 conviction for an unlawful possession of marijuana conviction and an $25 for operation of an uninspected motor vehicle.

Mr. Crandall had rejected the initial plea bargain offer that would have granted Square an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal. He noted the deposition from U.S. Customs and Border Protection had found 3.25 ounces of marijuana in her vehicle following a canine alert during a secondary inspection Sept. 14, 2011 at the U.S. port of entry.

She had initially been charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of marijuana. “She was in possession of approximately 92 grams, which the court finds hard to believe was for personal use,” the local justice said of his decision to reject the ACD offer.

■ Jennifer M. Gooshaw, 29, of 18 Morris St., Norfolk, was fined $300 and an $85 surcharge for speeding in a plea bargain agreement that satisfied a driving while ability impaired charge. She reportedly had a blood alcohol content of 0.07 percent when she was stopped for traveling 46 mph in a 30 mph zone on County Route 39 in the town of Louisville. The DWAI charge was reportedly dismissed due to the low blood alcohol content and legal issues with the case.
