There is no plea deal for Rochester’s deputy mayor Leonard Redon who is accused of driving drunk.
The judge overseeing the case agreed to hold another hearing in July so both sides can continue talking about a possible plea deal.
Redon was arrested for DWI after being accused of passing a state trooper and getting pulled over on 490 in March. According to court paperwork, Redon was going 65 to 70 miles per hour.
His attorney, Ed Fiandah, says he needs more time to investigate Redon’s arrest. “We're going to have hearings to determine the basis of the stop basis of arrest and hearing to determine the voluntary release of statements he may or may not have made.”
Redon has yet to undergo a court-ordered alcohol dependency evaluation which is standard for DWI arrests. His attorney says Redon will get it done before the next hearing which is scheduled for July 8.
